Above is one of the most frequently occurring error on paypal.
It happens during a transaction and sometimes even after the transacton.
No one knows why it happens.
However there is a solution.
When you see above error in a browser, start another browser and try to login into paypal there.
If it still doesn’t solve the problem then clean browser cache and retry.
This is driving me mad, every time I try to pay for something eg a rail ticket or a charity donation, I get this. None of paypals email headings match this and they are only interested in automated replies to standard problems. I am not a techie and do not understand the solution as given above – could someone write it out in simple words, please
If you are logged in to Paypal then log out, clean your browser cache and try again.
Rule of thumb – always logout from the paypal when you don’t need.
I haven’t seen this error recently.
