Issues paying with Paypal

Explorer C

I've tried to book a flight using Paypal for some time now. Tried booking on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and my mobile device and keep getting the same error message.


Sorry, we found some errors...

Error Code: 503301104


Looking back at the forums, there have been support threads on this topic since 2016. Is this something Southwest is planning on address, or is the Paypal button on the website just a fancy decoration that doesn't work?

I just used Paypal to book a flight. No Problem.


There's no outcry from others about the problem you are seeing, so I think the problem is

unique to you as opposed to something being wrong at SW.

Same here, I use PayPal frequently to pay, never run across an issue or this kind of error message. 


When exactly do you get this error message? PayPal typically pops up in a new window to pay, so if you have popups blocked on whatever device or browser you are using, that could be a potential cause, and Southwest may be timing out because of that.

Paying with credit card prevents double screen issue.
