I've just attempted to donate 25 USD (unfortunately not much but I hope it helps) to Daniweb, through the Paypal service however I haven't seen any updates to the goal ticker so I am unsure whether donation payment was successful (without getting a bank statement at the end of this month).

At what point will the ticker show an update? Is it a live process, once the payment has been validated, or is it a batch process?

Thank you and good luck with the donation drive!

    The payment actually went through. Much appreciated. It is a bug with the system not promoting your account. I'll get this resolved shortly. Read More

    Yes, it is. I'm still trying to figure out why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Read More

It's kinda late tonight so I'll get right on this in the morning.

Thank you,

I am using a new debit card, and that was the first payment on it so it could be an issue with the bank from this end.

Sorry to pester,

I noticed that the donation ticker had gone up by $5 which I assume was someone's recent donation, however it hasn't updated with the $25?

Just wondering if the issue is still under review.

Thank you

I just got off the phone with PayPal developer / api tech support. This is apparently a high priority issue on their end that has been ongoing for about 2 weeks (the problem being that their servers are being hit-or-miss transmitting the relevant data back to the merchants). That smells like bullshit to me, because a PayPal high priority issue like this should not be going on for 2+ weeks. But who am I to say.

Well that certainly does sound suspicious, and as you say, it certainly shouldn't be going on for over two weeks.

Thanks for looking at the issue, and I hope you see some progress soon.

Basically he pointed me to the IPN log thingy when you're logged into Facebook which shows all of your past transactions, and it is true that a decent percentage of them from the past few weeks have an empty 'message' area where it's supposed to have the details of the transaction account sent to the merchant. I'll investigate in a bit and see if the donations that aren't in my database happen to correspond to the ones that are blank on the PayPal log page.
