Hi Sam, I too have failed to pay by PayPal after several tries over the last two days (4 & 5/2/19). After filling in debit card details, I get the response: "sorry things don't appear to be working...", just like the others have.  I'll try again in a few days time.  Tony H

Which did you use though, an existing Paypal account or attempt to pay by debit/credit card as a Paypal "guest"? From what has been said above, I think that there are some circumstances in which it works and others in which it doesn't.

Sorry, should have said. I used an existing Paypal account. Guess it shows it work for some, some of the time. Still needs a fix or just keep trying.

Well that was a rigmarole! I got it to work using internet exploder only the link on Northern explorers web-page just takes you to the main pay pal site, not the paypal checkout page.

However I got around that by copying the link I had in Chrome on the pay bit into explorer and it worked finally!

So it looks like it's Chrome that is not working, when no paypal account.

I have detailed the steps I took here, it should help others:

1) Open up the northern explorers forum in your normal browser (Chrome or whatever you have been trying it with) and click the "buy tickets" button.
2) Don't bother entering any details, select everything in the address bar (the https:\\... text) at the top and press Ctrl + C.
3) Open internet explorer and paste that address into the address bar there by selecting the text and pressing Ctrl + V
4) Fill in the details now and press pay and hopefully the bloody thing will work.

Please pass this on to your mates who are having trouble.

Doesn't work on Firefox either. I got round it by reactivating an old (ancient!) Paypal account, updating its password, checking it worked by buying something on EBay, switching to Northern Explorers Forum and going into Buy Tickets, resetting the Paypal password (to the one set above) yet again, and then paying. And BINGO! - I've now bought my seat.

So it can be done - just Quaking is easier.

After some work with Paypal it should now work with a guest checkout. However, cookies need to be cleared first and depending on the device it still may not work. There are several people who I know are having problems and I'll arrange an alternative payment method.

Please PM me if it doesn't work for you. I'm away next week so you may not get a response immediately.

Andy I'm pleased that you are so determined to come.

Ahh that will explain why it worked in Exploder as it would not share the cookies with Chrome.
