    I recently won a bid and tried to buy the item, but for some reason my payment wasn't processing. Tried again multiple times. Tried my mum's card (with her kind permission of course) Still not working. Have a look at the payment options, click onto "other" to see what's there. A page about contacting the seller about other payment methods pops up so I click straight back out. Try to go to the payment page for the item again but it's not available as I've apparently now got "payment pending"
    What do I do???

    Contact the seller (who may have a problem) and Ebay/Paypal.

    Sounds like PayPal suspended your payment when it was going through. They've done this to me before and accused me of fraud. Which of course, wasn't the case :lol: — I was trying to buy a jumper for goodness sake! If you give PayPal a ring or email them, they'll be able to explain why and take the block off of your account.

    Going to have to move this to a more appropriate section, hope you don't mind

    Give paypal a call, sometimes a first payment through the account can be a bit slow for security i think
