Today I've been trying to pay for a small item I got on eBay, and after I select Paypal and hit continue, I get this warning with the choice of continue, cancel, or show certificate. If I click on show certificate I am warned, as you can see, that the certificate "is not valid." This happened yesterday, too. I tried three times to pay in the morning, with each time this warning. I tried again yesterday afternoon, and I could make the payment without incident. Today, though, the warning has come up every time, all day. <br><br>Anybody have any idea of what's going on here?<br><br>Tomorrow I'll probably just mail the guy a check.<br><br><br><br>
I've been getting this too in Safari on Leopard - though not in FireFox - and if I okay it, it jumps to a new page with adverts for other items on eBay. In FireFox, I still get these adverts but they're incorporated into the the eBay payment page. Weird.<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

If I go to payments.ebay.com it redirects me to the official ebay sign in page, or if I'm signed already, it directs me to an ebay page for sellers, so the address appears to be legit.<br><br>I've seen that happen at other sites, then it goes away eventually. They are legit just something is wrong with the certificate.<br><br>Does it happen if you use Firefox?<br><br>You can call ebay 800-717-3229 or 888-445-5046.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
My son today helped me to add Firefox (I'd been using Safari) and lo and behold, with Firefox there was no problem. So THANKS for the advice.<br><br>I'd gone on an eBay buying spree (half a dozen inexpensive items) and Safari worked with the other dealers just fine. Well, there was ONE other time the day before where I had the same trouble in the morning, but I tried again in the afternoon and the problem was gone. But with this last case, I tried 20 times in 24 hours and no luck. Then I decided to send a check and clicked on "other methods" of payment and even then I got the warning, and because I didn't want to go through it, I couldn't get to the guy's address information. I wanted to pay someone a measly $10.74 and was going nuts. So I was real glad to get Firefox and have it work.<br><br>But it does make me wonder why Firefox worked and Safari had this problem, and why the Safari problem didn't exist with the majority of dealers, was temporary for one dealer, and seemingly chronic for the other.<br><br><br>
