This issue has now been resolved.
PayPal is currently upgrading some key site features which may result in delays in order placed today. We will update this thread when we have verified that orders are once again being completed immediately. For more information you can go to:
Live Site Status - PayPal Developer Community
We remind users of our generous delay policy whereby if your order is delayed by 1 hour you get a free time card, if delayed by more than 24 hours your order will be manually processed and you will receive double credit in the form of time cards. You must e-mail email@example.com
within 72 hours of your order to request that we investigate your order to ensure you receive these extra bonuses should you qualify.
