What does it say next to the transaction in your Paypal account?
1. Pending / Unclaimed.
2. Pending / Unclaimed with a cancel option.
3. Completed / Sent.
4. Pending / Uncleared.
5. Pending awaiting authorisation.
Thank you for your post! If there is not a cancel option but the payment is listed as unclaimed, the payment will be returned to you in 30 days as long as it is not claimed in that time. If the email address that you sent the payment to is associated with an existing PayPal account, the funds would not be returned unless that person initiated a refund. However, if the payment was sent as a Goods and Services payment, you can open a dispute for Item Not Received.
I hope this helps!
