How a 3rd party can verify if a paypal payment went through?

Posted on

I have two people disputing about a paypal payment, one says he sent the money and the other says he didn't receive.

I have to judge which one is saying the truth without having access to their paypal account, since screenshots can be tempered with I can't rely on those either. The sender provided a transaction ID, is there any way I can use that to verify the transaction?

Is there anything else I can try and resolve this?

Hi @Akhter057


Welcome to the Community! 


Due to security and privacy concerns, we can't provide any information about a customers PayPal account. 


When buyers pay with PayPal, PayPal Buyer Protection covers them in case there is a problem. If an item doesn’t arrive or is significantly not as described, we will help buyers get a full refund.


If the buyer has any problems, they can file a dispute in the Resolution Center within 180 days of purchase.


They will be able to communicate with the seller and request for a refund through PayPal's platform.


Hopefully, this helps!
