I have a client whose payments stopped working today.  All customers are getting an error when checking out, and the PayPal log is showing this:


[29-10-2015 10:29:37] PayPal\Core\PayPalHttpConnection: INFO    : POST https://api.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token
[29-10-2015 10:29:37] PayPal\Core\PayPalHttpConnection: INFO    : Response Status     : 429
[29-10-2015 10:29:37] PayPal\Core\PayPalHttpConnection: ERROR    : Got Http response code 429 when accessing https://api.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token. {"message":"Too many requests. Blocked due to rate limiting.","informationLink":"https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/#RATE_LIMIT_REACHED","name":"RATE_LIMIT_REACHED","debugId":"xxxx"}


There is more than an hour between most of the errors, and in between have had no successful transactions or other errors.  Does anyone have any suggested ways to resolve this issue?

PayPal had a service issue last night that is now resolved. So this problem may have sorted itself out.
