I've recently attempted to withdraw funds from my PayPal to my bank account.
It was fine with transferring £5.00 instantly (and other small payments).
However, when I tried withdrawing £10 and £70, the status just awaits on pending.
It has been doing it since around 3PM...
Why is it taking so long to put it back to my account?
Can be up to 72 hours although if it is going to be longer than 24 hours you normally get an email.
Best to withdraw x1 week rather than everytime someone pays as that reduces the risk of it happening.
Thank you for your reply.
This is my first time on the forums and didn't see the other posts regarding this issue.
Seems to be happening a lot.
hi i'm having the same problem! normaly its in my account within 2 hours but now its saying pending????? paypal are a joke. i have sold some thing and the buyer paid quickly so i was all set to ship his item till this crap happends. if this keeps happening i will close down my accout as this is getting beyond a joke now!!!!!!
