How long does paypal take to charge my bank account?


Recently I made a purchase, while using my linked bank account, yet it still hasn't charged me --- side question do they charge your bank/debit card extra for a payment through paypal?

Buyers do not pay fees only sellers.


Transfers from bank accounts are never instant, that is why when you buy something paypal credit the seller upfront for you and paypal take the wait for the funds to transfer to pay them back again, this is so you get your item without delay.

Takes 5-7 working days to transfer as Paypal use the slowest (cheapest) transfer option BUT funds normally leave your bank account from a few hours up to a few days later.
