PayPal notification of payment emails

No primary category set

I’m not sure if this is new, random, or something I’ve just never noticed before. I occasionally click a link in a PayPal notification email to check a product description. Normally it links to the item on eBay.co.uk which is where I’ve listed and sold the item. This morning I’ve had a couple that link to eBay.com where I never list items, and of course I’m not logged into that site

PayPal email linking to eBay.com

I’ve checked back on previous PayPal notification emails and can’t find any other instances of .com URLs so hopefully they won’t be here to stay.

  1. I think this has been the case for most PayPal emails for a long time – I always pack in front of the screen & pull the items up to check (as many of mine have very similar descriptions). I used to do this from the PayPal notification, and the links always brought up the items on the .com site.

  2. Hmmm – I’ve had a closer look at a few emails (mixture of last week or so and a couple of years ago), and I have a mixture of links to .co.uk and .com on both sets of emails.

    My non-scientific observation of a 2 minute quick study is that payments for single items are more likely to point to .co.uk, whereas payments for multiple purchases are more likely to point to .com :-~
