where does the money go?


I recently signed up for PayPal and purchased my first item online with the credit card I put in my "Wallet."  But what happens if somebody buys something from me?  Where does PayPal put that money?  I don't think they would put it on my credit card, so how do I get that money?

The funds you receive will go into your PayPal Balance. From your available balance; you are able to use the funds for another transaction, withdraw the funds to your bank, withdraw to an eligible debit card, or withdraw cash at an atm with a PayPal debit card.
