Supported Features

We support the following features in our integration with the PayPal status page:

If PayPal is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when PayPal is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

PayPal posts separate notifications for planned maintenance work. StatusGator will notify subscribers when PayPal enters a pre-planned maintenance window, keeping you up to date.

PayPal does not publish a feed of praoctive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate PayPal maintenance events into your unified calendar.

At this time, we do not collect status messages from the PayPal status page. If you need this capability, please be sure to reach out.

At this time, we do not collect detailed status updates from the PayPal status page. If you need this capability, please be sure to reach out.

Because PayPal has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
