Ok, so I got charged 15$ a couple weeks ago. It was a payment that I didn’t aprove and I contested it and PayPal gave me back my money while they looked into it. Fast forward about a week. I receive an e-mali Telling me that they ended up deciding that I did aprove the payment(even though I didn’t), and informed me that in 5 business days they will set my account at -15.00$... Fine, whatever, they want that 15.00$ bad enough to **bleep** me over it, then take it ya **bleep**. I’ll just eat it and learn that I can’t trust PayPal.. A couple days pass and I try to make an online purchase. PayPal’s not approving the purchase(Apparently if they don’t aprove it, then it matters lol), so I check my PayPal balence. -15.00$. Its early and I honestly just assumed they would pull the money directly from my account, but again, Whatever... I tell them to just pull the 15$ from my checking account and forget about it.. Now here we are a few days later, and i’m Getting rejected again. Look PayPal, you’re the one that put me in this situation by **bleep** me over in the first place. You want me money, and I gave it too you. Now will you hurry the hell up and take it already. This item i’m Trying to buy is 70% off, and I have no idea how long it’s going to be like that, but you are**bleep** AGAIN as my stor credit is litterally 94cents less than I need... Do you want my money or not? Stop **bleep** around and take it, so I can make this purchase...
Have you actually 'sent' the payment to your paypal balance?
If so then it takes a few days before it clears through to your paypal account balance.
They say 3-4 working days.
That excludes weekends so you may be waiting a bit longer
A quicker way to do so which I know won't help you now is to just get a mate or family member to send you a friends / family payment to your balance and that clears it instantly. As long as they fund it via funds in their balance OR a bank account and not a card then there is no fee.
Don't know about tags I never use them but it could be different in the country you are in maybe?
I see under my post Tags (optional).
