Massive Paypal Outage Hits Users Around the World

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Millions of Paypal users around the world found Paypal down, and were told that it was a Paypal internal server error, and to contact webmaster@paypal.com. “Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@paypal.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error,” said the error.

Thousands of unhappy Paypal users hit the Internet Patrol today, most of them arriving at our Is Paypal Down? article, and leaving their mark in the form of dozens of frustrated comments, such as these below.


We note that when we were able to access Paypal, there was a new welcome page, touting the new Paypal Pay People to Do Stuff service, which gives us pause to wonder if the outage was due to their updating the site.

In any event, as people start becoming more and more frustrated and disenchanted with Paypal, they are seeking alternatives. We suggest these 3 easy alternatives to Paypal.
