We've been using recurring payments with the 'PayPal - Website Payments Pro' processor for several years now. In the past we'd see an occasional delay between the user's submitting the payment on a CiviContribute page and the transaction being recorded as "Completed" in CiviCRM. The delay would be minutes or hours.
Recently (say, last 2-3 months), we've seen delays as much as several days; two recent examples: the contributions were initiated (and thus the recurring subscriptions were created in PayPal) on 4/1, but PayPal only actually processed the first payment on 4/6.
Found the following, poking around PayPal's knowledge base: https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/why-are-some-of-my-initial-payments-delayed-when-i-use-my-recurring-payments-profile-faq3682
Anyone else experiencing this? Any way around it?
(Reason this is important to us is we provide discounts on events for members, and folks often sign up for membership right before registering for an event, and they don't receive their discount if the payment processing is delayed.) Thanks for any tips.
