I had $9 in my Paypal account. I just made a payment by accident, for a game for $14, but it went through anyway. Any idea why? I had just added some money to my account, but it wasn't in yet. I am not sure what I should do now.
You never need funds in your paypal balance as a buyer as paypal will take from any linked funding source.
When you pay a seller paypal CREDIT that seller and then if there are no or not enough funds in your paypal balance they will debit your bank account or card dependent on what you have linked.
