I have tried to send money to a friend and I keep getting the message that the transaction is pending and hasn't accepted yet. The person receiving it can't see the transaction in their account.

I am having this same problem. I have 2 paypal accounts, one of which I made a payment for a school club, and my personal account says we haven't accepted the payment. I have verified the clubs email and bank account and still no luck. Please help.
