3 days ago I created a paypal account and linked my bank card to send money to a friend. It gave me a confirmation number and the correct email/phone number, confirmed with friend. It has already charged the amount from my bank the same day. Friend has been on paypal for years. I have confirmed my account through email that paypal sent me. Can anyone help me figure out what is going on?
Personal payments usually done instantly. Ask your friend to verify his account. He has to confirm his email address and also if you are sending money through web then it is mandatory for him to verify his account completely by adding bank account and confirming it to receive the money.
