How do I check my PayPal balance?

Hello. I do not have a Bank Account linked whatsoever to my PayPal account. However, I am wanting to see how much money I have stored in my PayPal account, but when I go to my Wallet it requires me to link a bank account or credit card. And going to Activity doesn't help. 

 

I heard from many sites that PayPal allows you to recieve (via email requests if a credit card isn't linked) and send money without a Bank Account registered, but how do I check my balance?

 

Cheers.

Then you might not even have funds in your PayPal account, if you don't see an Amount right when you log on.

You only have a balance showing when someone has sent you money.

You can see your PayPal balance (how much you have in your account) right when you log on, in the PayPal Balance box on the Summary page, but there are recent changes to how personal accounts work:

recent user agreement and policy changes to personal accounts

 

When you use your PayPal account, your transactions show up in the Recent Activity section of the summary page and in the Activity page without a running Balance column. It just plainly lists payments received and payments made. 

 

For more detail: You'll have to create and download a report:

 

(Monthly)

Activity > Statements > Standard 

 

(Raw data with running balance or balance affecting)

Activity > Statements > Custom > Activity Download

Select Transaction type, date range, customize report fields, and report format.

Why did you remove the all activity with running balance? Why do we have to generate a report and try to decipher it’s hieroglyphics? This hasn’t been ok for years yet you do nothing about it!!!

No idea, things change; site/interface redesigned. Streamlining information, if you want the info, you can download it. Or look at the statement pdf's.

I am in my summary page, and I only see "Link a Debit Card" and "Confirm your Mobile Phone" as well as Recent Activity. But I do not see anything about Balance.
