Does anyone know why anytime you do tracert notify.paypal.com    or ping notify.paypal.com the request times out?

However the IP resolves!

ICMP Pakets (Ping) are disabled bei Paypals Policys. The Firewall drops ICMP Pakets.

Could this have any implications when sending info to and from notify.paypal.com in the course of a tranaction?

No, the ICMP protocol is not used in sending and receiving info for transactions.  That will be HTTP or HTTPS which is a different protocol entirely.
