PayPal with eCheck creates invoice while payment is pending review!

I sell downloadable products on Magento 1.4.2.0 with PayPal Web Standards.

Today a customer paid with ‘eCheck’ and the payment status in Magento is correctly ‘Payment Review’. However, the invoice was created and the product made available for download. But the payment has not arrived yet.

PayPal quotes:

“eCheck estimated completion: 19.01.2011-21.01.2011. We recommend that you don’t ship items until you receive payment.”

Any suggestions how to handle this? Where to start with improving the code?

im having the same problem but can give any solution sorry :(.... im trying to figure it out too

it seems like a BIG bug to me, but im surprised i havnt found anything about it anywhere… (just this post).
It happens with every transaction that goes into payment review (and paypal is always monitoring all transactions and putting \’suspect\’ transactions under this state for 24 hours to \’research\’ on it, so the potential number of cases where this can happen is a lot higher than if it only was for echecks...)

nobody has any idea? cmon, i cant believe theres nobody out there thats not using magento+paypal+downloadable products… smile

btw, using magento comunity 1.4.1.1

I had a similar problem with OsCommerce marking items as paid via echeque and was defrauded of a couple of hundred pounds by a single user. You can disable echeque payments through your website preferences in paypal, it’s well worth doing!
