PayPal has announced that they will have
downtime to upgrade their service on
the following date and time..

Friday, September 12th early morning
between 2AM EST - 3AM EST


With PayPal Down, you can not take PayPal
payments.


Our Web host has moved to a new data center
and we need abut 30 minutes of downtime to
move our severs from Canada to Texas and hit
the switch.

We wanted to do this at a time when PayPal was
down for scheduled maintenance to do ours
as well.

We are mirroring PayPal's downtime so you have
NO LOSS of service due to PayDotCom's upgrade.

Please be aware of the date and time above.

Not Sure how this will effect WSO's? and of course the rest of your online business.

    With PayPal Down, you can not take PayPal
    payments.
    Plan ahead, and don't promote or take orders within that period if you rely on
    PayPal for that. No big.

        Hey Mike...

        I hope that is the case.

        I know last week Paypal had some sort of a glitch which affected sales.
        Did not last long but was a headache for a bit.

        What do you mean holding back extraordinary sales volumes....I thought we were all making $10k a minute

        ..that would be something though.

    Nitpick:
    So does mean it will be down from 3 AM EDT to 4 AM EDT?
