Lately I’ve started to see “Bad Request” error on PayPal website.

Following is the error:

This error occurs only in Google Chrome browser. The error occurs randomly.

Paypal: “Bad Request” Error

Following are the situations when I’ve encountered this error

1) It can happen when you try to login and enter password

2) You try to make payment to someone and you land on paypal account and login

3) You are on the PayPal website and trying to send a payment

4) Others

The Solution

Clean Google Chrome’s Cache and Cookies, restart and, hopefully, problem will be gone.

This error doesn’t happen in Firefox or in IE. So use any other browser than Chrome if cleaning Cache and cookies doesn’t work.
