"The Transaction ID in your link is invalid
Posts: 1
Registered: ‎07-01-2012

I sold my first item on Ebay, and the buyer purchased the item by PayPal immediately.  When I clicked on "View PayPal Transaction," I get an error message on the PayPal login page that states "The Transaction ID in your link is invalid."  How do I fix this?

Log on to paypal.com directly, by typing the URL into your browser (e.g., not via a link).

Then look at your transaction details.

Upper right corner on this page, click 'customer support'. Type your question into the input box, and click the 'search' button.

Login to PayPal directly, that link almost never works.Type www.paypal.com into your browser.

 

Never rely on My eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

 

Login to PayPal to verify the status of the payment and click on Details to see if it is OK to SHIP and where to ship.
