Hi I'm new to PayPal so I'm still figuring things out.
I bought an item on ebay just recently and didn't know that transfering funds from a bank account to my paypal account would take 3 to 4 business days to go through. I didn't have that much time to wait so I went ahead and payed for the item with my card and that went through directly but now I have this transfer still processing and if it goes through I will be overdrawn is there anyway I can cancel this transaction ? I've looked everywhere and just can't figure it out please please please help me !
The transfer cannot be canceled. Your best option is to deposit sufficient funds in your bank account so that the transaction doesn't bounce.
