I will type this out for the 13th time. I closed my Paypal account 2 years ago when I was ripped of for $108 wig from China. On December 1,2020, I ordered 3 drill bit units for Christmas Presents. Awesales, Amazing Tools DIY, Philippines. I ordered 3 for $51.01 with free Shipping. I got one unit plus $5.99 shipping. Remember I did not have a PP account at the time. My credit card was charged $51.01 on Dec 11th, and the statement said it was a paypal reciept???
If you bought something online with a debit or credit card and did NOT log into your Paypal account then of course it won't show on that Paypal account because you bought as a 'guest buyer'. However your seller may have processed that payment using their Paypal 'card reader' and so Paypal would show on your bank or card statement.
