Cancelled payments and refunds??

I recently sent some money to a friend via PayPal to pay for a pair of tickets on one occasions and then to cover a day out on the other. Both payments were cancelled because they were eCheques and would have taken to long to go through so I paid her in cash or by bank transfer. I checked the other day, however, and the money for both payments has gone out of my account but haven’t turned up anywhere else. Am I gonna get my money back? Because it was a reasonable amount going out and, if I’m honest, I’m kinda worried I’m not gonna see the funds again.

You cancelled the transaction but that does not cancel any authorised and already processing payments.


When you cancel a payment those funds can't do a u-turn > they have to process through to paypal who will then either return them to your funding source (if you paid with a debit or credit card), or credit your paypal balance (if it was funded from your balance or instant bank transfer), but that takes a few days and sometimes up to a week.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.
I do not work for Paypal.
