I am a long time purchaser on Bricklink but in the last week I have suddenly
not been able to complete a purchase. When I get to the last step 'check
out with PayPal' I get a 'processing' indication which just goes
on forever. I checked with the store and they were getting purchases made by
other people. I have tried on a couple different stores and had the same problem.
I have tried using a different computer and had the same problem. My PayPal account
seems fine, and I made a different transaction on there after this problem began.
So it looks like something to do with my connection with Bricklink. I could try
closing my membership and starting again, but then I would lose my long transaction
history, which I would rather not do. Can anyone help me with this problem? Phil

Maybe ask the seller for his PayPal email address and try paying directly to
PayPal outside of BL just like we did back in the day.
