Just to let everyone know, if you happen to get this error message when making a donation, it does not mean that the transaction has been rejected. If Paypal and your bank report that the money has been taken out, then we have most likely received it.
The error message issue seems to be related to Paypal's more recent changes, which isn't confirming the transaction as you make it but completes it shortly thereafter. Also, those using checking or other direct bank accounts rather than credit card or debit card accounts to make Paypal payments should be aware that there is a 5-7 day waiting period to clear, which is usually indicated in all of Paypal's response e-mails.
If your donation status does not change by the end of the week you make the donation and Paypal does not inform you of a waiting period beyond that, send a message to the Donations Manager e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and we'll review it further.
Thanks again for your patronage and continued support.
