Over 200 people have said they've experienced this but not one person has shared the outcome. Did the money eventually show up? How long did it actually take for the funds to be accessible? I'm going through the same thing except I don't recall choosing the "instant" transfer. I was frustrated to be on the phone for almost 2 hours with tech support (1 hour and 45 minutes on hold!!) because the site was asking me to verify by phone but wasn't giving me any phone numbers to choose from and wouldn't let me add one.
Did the funds show up or did they disappear and were never gotten? If you eventually got the funds how long did it take?
I am having the same issue. First eBay hold, then PP 72 hour hold for attempting to use the instant deposit. Last night, I received the emails saying the hold had completed and should have the funds typically within 30 min. (That's that the email said, seriously!!) I checked my bank balance this am, no funds, PP says transfer completed. CSR from my bank(SunTrust) tried looking for any incoming transfers and put me on hold for about 5 min; and after the wait, I was told there wasn't any incoming deposits to my account. Very frustrated!!! Hoping tomorrow will have some better news
PayPal is seriously a huge joke! This is exactly why I only use Cash App. I sold some of my college books and the only form of payment was PayPal and I was completely dreading this because PayPal always has an issue with giving me my money on time. Like it’s 2018, I don’t understand why PayPal doesn’t have their system together, it is completely ridiculous. I decided to do the instant transfer to my debit card and yep, I’m not even surprised the money has yet to be in my account and it’s been 24 hours and the payment is still pending. I really don’t understand why this could be... I thought transfers we’re supposed to be simple, with Cash App the money is instantly, like 2 seconds, in my bank account with no trouble at all. PLUS I have been waiting to talk to a customer service representative for an hour and 20 minutes, like PayPal please get your stuff together because this is ridiculous. I shouldn’t still be waiting to speak to someone. If my money doesn’t come into my account tomorrow I am going to be extremely upset and look for alternatives to get my funds. PayPal this is beyond ridiculous.
I do these a lot and usually they go through very fast. A few days ago suddenly it said my bank wasn't accepting them and then it came back later that day... well today I transferred money 3 times and the middle time it disappeared. I seriously don't think my bank rejected one out of many and then accepted the next one. smh.
