    Hi @lalarnz,

    We tried to replicate the issue in our testing site but were unable to do so as the orders were correctly processed.

    Did the user charged twice or is it just the order being created twice? If it is just the order, it might be due to some network issues and the user might have clicked the checkout button twice.



    Hi @webtoffee,
    We also have this issue.
    We process our orders exclusively via paypal express checkout.
    The other week we had a massive influx of orders.
    About 5-10% of them would create a duplicate order on the woocommerce “orders” page, however only one payment can be seen on the backend of paypal.
    We also get the occassional “pending payment” from a customer, however this shouldn’t happen as it’s going through paypal.
    Really need a fix on this as it’s making things very difficult for us.
    I refunded one customer’s duplicate order and nothing changed with the payment they sent when looking at paypal.
    If you need more info please email:
    Please help us fix this.
