I started my Adwords campaign at 1:00 am and paused it at 8:am EST. Basically it was running last night on Eastern time. I had a few clicks which under normal circumstances should have given me at least 2-3 sales. But I had nothing.
I checked in the morning (8-10 am EST) and it seemed to me that Paypal was down. I checked from 2 different IP's. Then I stopped my campaign as I was loosing money.
Basically my PayNow E-junkie button would show the "waiting" circle and never actually reach Paypal.
I looked everywhere and I saw nobody complaining (Google News, webmaster forums, here, etc.)
Did you guys notice anything or was it a localized incident.
Even at around 10pm that I was able to log-in to my Paypal not all links were functional, so I am positive this was (is) Not a E-junke issue.
By the way, even the last couple of days when everything was smooth and running during my tests, I still notice the same damn delay from Paypal. It's a constant factor even before implementing the E-junkie buttons and i was working with regular PayPal buttons.
I mean, the delay is 6-8 seconds. That's a long time in internet marketing as people change their minds and you loose customers.
Anything I can do about it? Settings in my Paypal account?
