How do you know if your PayPal balance is correct? If it shows $100 balance but is showing debit card transactions still pending (my own, not from eBay), can I go by the balance PayPal is showing, or do I need to deduct whatever is pending from the balance shown to get a correct amount? That's really confusing. Thanks!
The balance is what you see. If you have an amount pending, it is not part of the balance. After the pending amount has been cleared or released, it will be added to balance.
