I like to joke about my #thinslicing abilities, the idea I am good a finding a needle in a haystack. But it’s difficult scientifically to prove such a talent, as it so easily looks like luck/coincidence. For example I stumbled across a bug today trying to buy some earplugs on eBay which meant I was unable to pay for the item with PayPal, a real pain-point if it’s widespread. Then again I have done a little bug testing in-house for eBay before so maybe..
Welcome to eBay Live Help, my name is Peter. How may I be of assistance?
Hi yes I have a problem with payment – when I go to pay using PayPal I am returned to the review order page. I tried this twice and this happened twice.

Have you tried to clear cache and cookies to make sure that there is no outdated information in your account.
I will try that, thank you Peter.

Is there anything else that I can assist you with?
Yes, I tried that and got an error message on PayPal – Message 3005 – temporary difficulties are being experienced. I hope that was helpful:-)

I will just need a moment while I check this for you.
