I hope my password system isn’t in jeopardy of going down! My PayPal debit card I’d been using to pay Authpro, my password service provider, since site launch in 2006, it expires this month and I hadn’t activated the new one yet. I think that’s why my checkout payment for Authpro failed today. I really really hope that’s why it failed. The email for the rebill failure came in at 5 a.m., and I’d already read it and pounced on he problem by 6:15! I called customer service for Authpro’s billing provider, and they were able to confirm the changes I’d made to my account with them when I hurried to activate my new PayPal card and update my billing info, and he told me the payment should automatically rebill in 48 hrs. Now I have to try and back up my membership list file and hope the card expiration date was the thing. I wonder how long Authpro will let me stick around with them while they wait for my payment to clear. It should, but I didn’t get the guarantee I wanted from he customer service rep. He and the email I got said my bank said “530 Do not honor”, but there’s no bank account directly associated with my site … so it’s just the date I hope. All of this also came just hours after I got a rare set of PayPal IPN failure notice emails from when a new member tired o sign up. I’ve seen those notifications before three or four times in these almost three years, but thier timing didn’t make me any happier to see them.
