My sister sent money to me on Saturday using "send money to family & friends". It has not shown up in my account yet nor have I been notified that I have money from Paypal. How long does it take?

How long to receive money?

Hi Fabricluver,

 

Welcome to the PayPal Community Forum.

 

When you receive a payment via PayPal, the transaction should appear in your PayPal account instantly. It could be that the payment was sent to a different email address. The best thing would be to check with the sender to confirm that the correct email address was used.

 

Please let us know if you need a follow up.  

 

Thanks,

Jessica

I just checked the email address and it is spelled incorrectly.

How do we fix this?

 

I really appreciate your help!

Her paypal account shows unclaimed funds if that helps.

Since she had the wrong email address and her account showed unclaimed funds, she was able to click on the cancel button but she is receiving a message about a hold. The funds have been withdrawn from her bank so how long does it take before they are added back to her paypal account?

 

THEN can she send money to me and it transfer immediately or do we wait on the bank again?

 

Thanks again!
