Online payment outfit PayPal has been explaining why its service has been ropey since last week, leaving users struggling to access the service.

A statement on the eBay subsidiary's site reads: "A technical problem has caused intermittent availability for members attempting to use the site. Activities such as accessing account information, paying for ended eBay listings, and using PayPal shipping functionality have been intermittently available.

"PayPal is continuing to work to resolve these issues. We understand the inconvenience this issue has caused for some members, and we appreciate your patience." Spokeswoman Amanda Pires, told Reuters that the company was "working furiously" to resolve the problem, which seems to be related to some coding snag.

Last week, WorldPay, the UK-based internet payment transaction outfit, confirmed it was fighting a sustained DDoS attack which left its services largely unavailable. ®
