I've had a number of buyers over the last few days tell me that they are
having problems paying using the Paypal link on Bricklink and have had to resote
to paying manually.

I also noticed a had a number of orders on Paypal showing as "void" during the
same period.

One of the buyers says he spoke to Paypal today who said it was an issue with
Bricklink.

Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

I've had four buyers over the last few days and haven't had any problems
with PayPal, and I made a few purchases last week, again with no problems.

Thanks, I'm still getting the same issue this evening.

They are able to pay manually but not direct from Bricklink.

I think I just solved this so in case anyone else experiences similar issues,
the problem appears to have been that Bricklink had disappeared from the Paypal
API permissions.

You can view these permissions in Paypal under;

Settings My Selling Preferences API Access Manage API Permissions

To reinstate the permissions I had to disconnect my Paypal account from Bricklink
under:

My Store Settings Payments

The reconnect using the button that then appears on the same page.

Hopefully that's useful to someone.
