EXPIRED - Have paypal recently changed the layout of their emails confirming a payment has been made?

    Previously the transaction ID has been in small writing, now it is a banner.
    Previously the payment details were not detailed, just the transaction id.
    Previously in the email title there was the ebay item number and 'notification of payment from not just 'notification of payment received'.

    Is this normal or have I got a dodgy payment?



    Log into your paypal account to check.
    Remember if your uncertain don't link to paypal from the email, type it into the web address bar.

    Mine are still the same, I would double check your paypal account to confirm payment has been made.
    This is one received about half hour ago:

    I logged onto paypal - not from the link and it's all in there. I just am wary of the change of email layout and just a bit cautious I guess. Thanks for the advice.

    Damn, doesn't look like that. That's what they all used to look like. Strange. It's all in my paypal account though!

    Paypal confirmed that the payment was kosher - so no worries there now!

    well at my end if you use paypal for an ebay item and you click to make a paypal payment from ebay it doesn't link you to the paypal website but keeps you on the ebay website as your going through the payment process, i think this is what your talking about, but not sure

    i got paid for an item the other day, looked more like a money transfer than an ebay sale, i think they have changed their email layout
