Support » Plugin: WooCommerce PayPal Payments » Pending Orders for New Customers

    It looks like everyone is still having the same issue after all these weeks. To be specific, it seems to happen on my site with new customers more often than the rest. When a new customer purchases something from us using your paypal plugin, it says “pending” and never goes any further. I have to manually cancel the order in our system and tell the customer to try again. Unfortunately many customers just give up and don’t come back. This is getting ridiculous and it’s hurting business.

    Hello @scrapheap

    we are aware of this issue and doing our best to get this one resolved as soon as we can. It has been a bit more challenging than we expected. Last week we released version 1.5.1 which also included one fix for a cause for the pending payments issue, did you update the plugin and does it still occur? Please let us know, so we can confirm the fix or continue working on this if needed.

    Thank you.

    Yup, I’ve been updating every time you release a new version and the plugin is still a disaster. My company has already lost a bunch of money due to these issues and I sincerely regret upgrading from the previous plugin. We’re considering either going back to the other working plugin or removing PayPal altogether, unless your team is able to fix it very soon.

    Hello @scrapheap

    we are (and have been) working hard to get this issue resolved, but it seems to take longer than we expected. If this issue is impacting your business, I would agree that you switch back to the original plugin for now. It should still work as it did before and it will avoid your business from getting affected by the bug that is still present.

    We are confident that can fix this, however, we cannot confirm any release date for this at the moment. We are sorry this affected you but will do our best to get you the solution you require for your business needs.

    Kind regards,
    Joost

    For anyone searching these forums, just try this plugin instead: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-gateway-paypal-express-checkout/. We have zero issues with it and have used it for years.
