Dear Paypal User,

We’ll be making a series of system updates in the coming months to make our services more scalable and help ensure that they’re continuously available to our growing customer base. The next update is scheduled to happen on June 16, 2011, and as a result, PayPal will experience a service interruption. We’ve tried to choose a time that will minimize impact to your business and your customers.

How this may affect PayPal services

The PayPal website and PayPal APIs will be offline on June 16, 2011 from11:04 PM PT to approximately 11:30 PM PT and buyers attempting to make payments will receive error messages and won’t be able to complete their purchases. Other services that will be down during this time include Website Payments Pro Payflow Edition and Batch Processing (batch.paypal.com). We’ll be sure to let you know ahead of time when we do our next round of maintenance.

If you experience issues outside of 11:04 PM PT – 11:30 PT, you can file a ticket via www.Paypal.com/mts. There’s information about this maintenance event here, and you can monitor system updates on x.com any time.
