Why Does Discogs Show "Payment Pending" On My Order?

"Payment Pending" Order Status

Some sellers choose to use manual shipping and invoicing options. In this case, once you place your order, the seller will have to manually review the order, enter the correct shipping amount, and issue you an invoice.

You will be able to pay for this order from the Order Page, or the Invoice notification in your Discogs messages, using the Pay Now button:

Order Page: Paying from Order Page

Paying from Invoice

Once payment is sent from either source, the order status will update to Payment Pending:

Payment Pending Status

The seller will then confirm payment manually once they review the order and their PayPal account, and update the buyer regarding shipping. At any time, both buyer and seller can communicate about this process by leaving a message on the order page.
