Anyone else notice that the option to add tracking info for a Paypal payment has been removed?
So you cant enter any tracking numbers unless its done through Paypal shipping.
Guess this is their way to force more folks to use them for shipping.

Mad

I wish Google would integrate a shipping service.

Oh no! This is insane. How can they do a big change such as this without any notice to the sellers? Did anybody receive a warning email? Hopefully they're just updating the website or something. Worst case scenario on this would be how to prove shipping to paypal if your customers come up with a bogus non-delivery claim?

Thats what I had hoped also, but it looks to the permanent, as its been like this over a week now, so im told.

As long as you use Paypal Shipping you will be fine as they automatically add the tracking (DC Confirmation) info, but you cant add any outside tracking. So if its something Big that you cant weigh and have to take to the PO, you cant add a Tracking number.

Yes I noticed that too. I used the add tracking info when I would ship to Canada to put the customs form number in as I ship to canada from the usps station rather than paypal. I wish they would bring it back. Why can't they just leave things be... Bah Humbug Mad

I bet it's a temporary glitch. Otherwise, it doesn't make sense -- it would mean more effort and hours on PayPal's part investigating INRs.
