PayPal UK hiccup held payments for security checks
Technical problems for payments giant PayPal left some U.K. customers left in the lurch while their transactions were left for scrutiny by staff after they were held for additional security checks.
A number of PayPal users were left unable to automatically process payments after their money was sent for review, following changes to the payments system that was meant to ultimately speed up transactions.
When payments are made from PayPal to customers' bank accounts, the process that normally took around three business days now takes only a few hours caught up with PayPal after a flood of transactions stalled the system. The additional volume of payments led to some transactions being held for days at time instead of being transferred into users' bank accounts.
