Paypal trouble today

Dear customers/visitors,

Paypal are experiencing problems with transactions today. Customers have been paying for goods and receiving payment receipt emails from Paypal, but the transactions are “lost” somewhere for several hours before we receive the money in our Paypal account or our site receives IPN signal from Paypal, which causes customers not to receive the products they have purchased from us.

We have helped the customers who contacted us about it, and for now we have disabled Paypal payment option on our Checkout page. Please pay with a credit card using either the Worldpay or 2Checkout option for now.

There are some comments under this map here: https://downdetector.com/status/paypal/map/
which seem to indicate that other people are having some Paypal problems at the moment.
We will re-enable Paypal payment when they get their issues taken care of. Thanks.
