Hi, I've somehow sent money to the wrong address due to recipients' typo. Currently, payment is pending.

Is there any I can rectify this?

Hello @Madzack168,

I understand that you wish to know about the payment sent to wrong email address. If the email address the payment is sent to is not linked to any PayPal account then funds will be unclaimed for 30 days and then it will return to you automatically. PayPal cannot reverse payments that have been claimed. I recommend that you contact your recipient directly and make arrangements to have the money refunded to you via PayPal or another method of your choosing.

I hope this information has been helpful to you.

Thank you,
Santosh
