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
(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.
