Transfering money to paypal from a different bank account.

Hi! So basicly my aunt sent me money on paypal from her bank account.
The money didn't came thru. In Hungary it said it wont take more than 1-2 hours. It's been a day and im worried about my money.
After that happened, i read on the site that you have to send money from the bank account you added to paypal.

Yes, that is true.

 

Your aunt can also pay with her bank debit card or credit card if you sent her a PayPal invoice without having a PayPal account. You’ll have to ask your aunt how she send payment. Does she have a PayPal account?

 

Did you receive an email from PayPal confirming that you received a payment?


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

She doesn't have a paypal account. And i didn't recieve any emails.
Is there a way that she can have that money back?

Then how did she send payment to you in the first place? Did you send her a PayPal invoice to pay? Without knowing how she sent payment, it’s not possible to advise.

She logged into my paypal and then: Wallet -> Transfer money -> Add money to your balance. Then she sent the money to the bank account that appeared in the 2nd step.

This not the proper way to send money to a PayPal account but the way she did it is adding money to your PayPal account balance from the bank account she selected.

 

It is not transferring money from PayPal account balance to the bank account.

 

Adding money to your PayPal account balance with a bank account takes anywhere from 3-5 days if all goes well.

 

So she linked her bank account to your PayPal account?

 

It is not a good idea to link someone’s else’s bank account to yours. It should be removed after the funds appear or it fails and funds are returned to the bank account.

 

The right way is the sender and receiver each have their own PayPal account with banks/cards linked and sender sends the money to your PayPal email address, or your PayPal mobile phone number and pay with their linked bank account or card.

Well actually she didn't link her bank account to my accout, it doesn't show up as a linked account.

Ok, then all she did was add money from your bank account or the bank account linked to your PayPal account to your PayPal account balance.

 

So you should have received an email from PayPal saying that you added money to your PayPal balance and that it’ll take a few days for the money to appear in your balance.

 

You should also see a record of the transaction in your account activity.

 

If not, then she probably did not add the money at all because she wouldn’t be able to do that if her bank account is not linked. The money has to come from a bank account or a source already linked, if she didn’t link her bank account.

She paid me money from her own bank account. She doesn't have a paypal account.

And i didn't recieve any emails from paypal, that confirming the payment.
Also the money got transfered, she's missing the amount that she paid me.

How can she pay you with her own bank account while logged into your PayPal account that she did not link her bank account to? And she does not have her own PayPal account even. It’s not possible. There is a factor that is missing here. Like maybe a third party or an outside service was used.
