Cancel a Payment

New Community Member
Posted on

I sent a payment to a friend and was then informed he doesn't have a Paypal account. I would like to cancel this transaction since it can't be accepted. I have tried going to activity, and locating the transaction but I do not see an option anywhere to cancel it. From what I have read, in 30 days if unclaimed it will go back into my account but I would prefer to just cancel it. Thank you for your help.


Cancel a Payment

You can only cancel a payment that has gone to a non existent email address and so can never complete OR if a merchant voids the transaction for you, other than that its 30 days.
