I used Paypal on the 2nd of December (3 days ago) and it worked fine. Though I guess that doesn't mean it's working for everyone.

Paypal payments are working for people who have paypal already set up. If you change your payment information, paypal will most likely stop working. Customers who do not already have paypal configured as their primary payment method will not be able to add paypal as an option.

For those who wish to use paypal, it may be possible to use their free PayPal Debit MasterCard. I have not tested this though.

Due to technical issues, PayPal is not available for new payment setup. Also, if you change your payment from PayPal, you will not be able to go back to PayPal.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Not a fan of the way this situation was explained to me... or not explained, rather...

I went to buy a shirt and got a message that my payment was "denied" with a message to visit my cart or keep shopping... um hello? Why would I keep shopping if my payment was denied!? I went to see if something happened to it since the last order (where Woot forgot items not once, but twice causing me to miss the one thing that made me order that day in the first place) and then I found Paypal was no longer an option. After searching three pages of web search results I found this thread... Not happy right now Woot, you are better than this...

I'm sorry, I have had too many CC breaches, so I only use PayPal now. Can't purchase what I would like at this time.

Yep, me too. I just had to clear my cart because of no Paypal option. I'm sure you won't miss terribly my 24.99 but just thought I should speak up as well.

Why no PayPal? As an international customer this is how I always pay for things from US based online stores. Just came across Woot recently and wanted to buy a few shirts (and more in the future) but unable to do that without PayPal option

WHAT THE ████ woot! I had to learn about this the hard way. I've made over 250 purchases through woot over the years and most were paid through paypal. I made a change tonight to add a credit card. There was no warning that if I switched from paypal you would just remove that option from me from now on! I went right back into my options to try to change it back and gone!

I prefer to buy things online through paypal. You didn't have an issue with my previous 258 orders so why pull this sneaky method of hiding the option without any kind of warning?

I thought Amazon would bring good things to the table but so far it seems like woot is just becoming useless. I guess you won't have to worry about dealing with my annoying paypal purchases (or any other kinds) for a while.

I just signed up and WAS excited to purchase some woot golf balls. 2 packets for $30 and then I found out, they have no PayPal.

WHAT THE ████ woot. I just bought something on EBay...guess I will go back to ebay now.

Thanks for NOTHING.

I absolutely agree, I just bought some things today, and when I updated my credit card, no more paypal. No more wooting for me, I do not trust woot with my credit card information.

Just adding another voice of someone with over 150 woots. This is wrong, don't change payment options with no warning. I haven't used woot in a long time, mostly since it was taken over, I decided to try it out again, made one purchase and this is the thanks again. I guess I was correct in realizing woot had completely sold out and is no longer worth my time.

Just remember, somewhere in a boardroom there was a discussion about how to handle this, and somebody decided 'key lime pie 'em, we'll only lose a few customers'.

Grow or die.

Yes! Woot deleted my existing Paypal account without any notification and I can't add it back in?? Paypal is also no longer on the accepted payments FAQ page.

I'm sorry, we're depreciating PayPal in favor of Amazon Payments. If you deleted your PayPal from your account, or perhaps accidentally saved over it with a credit card when shipping to a new address or some such, we won't be able to let you add your PayPal account back on your Woot account.

Well, I guess this is it, then. 29 woots and I have no more reason to stay. Farewell, woot!

I was a little surprised at first and a tad upset that I couldn't use paypal like before, but since I use Amazon anyway, the setup and transition was no big deal really.

Sorry, but I couldn't place an order for a few shirts I wanted because you don't offer payments by Paypal. Amazon payments isn't suitable for international customers. You have to have a credit card, what's uncommon for most germans, we don't have credit cards. We pay national via our bank accounts. In international orders I strongly prefer payment via Paypal. At the moment, you don't offer me any opportunity to pay for my order.

Count me as one who is upset about not being able to use Paypal anymore. I wish you would let people know - I changed my payments instead of adding a new card and now it is gone. Amazon payments is not like Paypal. Very disappointing.

Wait, what? O.o

It sucks, because I can understand that PP is a pain now with the whole tax thing and extra charges and all the bull it's putting businesses through, but at the same time I can't stand needing multiple different payment methods depending on what site I'm on >.< Just my $.02 worth.

PayPal does offer a debit card.. That is what I do for many sites now.. But I do have Amazon Payments account - but that is my reserve for a new MacBook one day.
