Time for PayPal taking £1

I understand that PayPal does a ghost charge of £1 for verifying the account however I heard that it should be returned in moments however mine has not come back even after a buisness day. I would just like to know how much time does PayPal hold on to the £1 for?

Hi @Hapri,


Thank you for your post! Please take a look at this article for details regarding adding and confirming your bank account. Typically, the refund is made within 24 hours. The bank may take longer to reflect the refund.


I hope this helps!
