Hi, when I made a purchase recently, I used a credit card #, then I saw later that the transaction went through PayPal. I have never seen this before, am I missing something? It should appear on my card without going through PayPal, or am I wrong
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 your paypal account as 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.
Thank you kernowlass for your solution. I had purchased Norton anti virus protection with a credit card and not through PayPal so I was surprised to see the transaction in my PayPal account.
