    Well that worked well, Paypal was showing the discount and then charged me full price anyway. Clever trick.

    Nothing I can do now until tomorrow as eBay don't seem to want me to email them and the telephone option is unavailable until the morning...

    Have you clicked on the payment? PayPal always show full price as the headline price and the discount is shown further down

    Yes, I noticed similar. Ordered 4 things but added them to the basket so only did check out once. Checking via PayPal, one of the items got discount applied. Checking eBay and my order confirmation, I should have the full discount. I see a fair few people mentioned this on HotUKDeals as well.

    The 3rd point there seems to agree with what I did.

    Yes unfortunately my Paypal account shows as paying the full rather than the discounted amount even though it showed the discount previously during the checkout process..

    That's the way it discounts. You will be charged the correct amount.

    Unfortunately not, just called eBay and spoke to a lovely lady in the Philippines or wherever their call centre is and she told me I was not the only person to suffer this problem yesterday. Apparently there was a technical glitch that affected a number of members and they are "working on a solution." Less reassuring was hearing her say the solution might be another voucher...

    I'm not going to lose any sleep over it until I hear what the resolution is (they said they would call me back).

    Strange. I used this deal in November / December and noticed as you described. But was only charged the correct amount.

    Good luck

    I tried it on 3 items and only 1 of the items actually went through the checkout process. Not overly impressed but still, pressure washer for a little over £30.

    @Epicurus
    Just got off the phone to eBay. Turns out this happened to a lot of people. They will be refunding those affected as they can tell who has used the code and say it should be within the next 2 weeks due to the amount of people that had the issue.

    Might be worth you calling if you want to have it on your record but looks like they are going to sort it out.

    Thanks for that I was looking for an update in this thread earlier in fact. I had called the morning after and they said they would call me back but didn't. They did, however, say they would log the incident on my file and indeed that the issue had affected multiple people.

    Keep us updated when you get your refund, I'll call them back in a week if I haven't received mine.

    I guess they were in a panic - sounds like someone messed up big. The guy also mentioned that some people didn't get to use it at all so they will be reissued with the code.
