Same issue here. Hope they are aware about the bug and working on fixing it.

I just spoke to support and there has been a technical issue with PayPal since yesterday. I got the same error message that you do. Kind of frustrating. Okay...very frustrating. Ugh. He said to check back in 2-4 hours. Really? Wonder who is going to pay the late fees for all of my bills! :-)

They also told me it was a PayPal issue and when I called PayPal they said it was not so now I am even more annoyed that I am getting erroneous information. I love oDesk but this is an issue. Seriously.

it's just happened with me. The first time in two years I've ever had a problerm wirthdrawing fromn oDesk to Paypal (and I mean usually having the money in my Paypal in the time it takes me to open it up and log in), and I often thought that, given the way this site's heading, thank flip that the money part of it isn't affected. Now it seems it is....  top of the slippery slope, I think   Smiley Sad


(BTW - whise fault? oDesk's or Paypal's? Well. I know which I'd put my money on....

Definitely oDesk. I spoke to oDesk support and they told me that originally they thought it was PayPal but it turns out that it was oDesk. I have been with oDesk since 2012 and this is the first time this has happened. Frustrating. Smiley Frustrated

I had the same problems. Try it with a parcial amount, 2 $ less, that worked!

I tried withdrawing a bigger/smaller amount, but neither did the trick for me.

It works to me right now after 10 hours of waiting and trying.
