Pending Transaction -Friends Family- Direct from Bank Account

Hello, A friend transferred a payment to my paypal account through the family option. This came directly from her bank account and now this is pending. I had never previously had this issue before. 

Usually this goes into my paypal account immediately. 

QUESTION #1-Why the difference now?

I've seen many different answers on this forum for the pending time. 

QUESTION #2- Would someone be able to give me a clear answer please on the pending time frame?

 

Thank you for your help!

If the payment is showing as pending in YOUR paypal account then it sounds like an echeque.

Is there a clearance date?

If not then it could just be a random paypal security check that normally lasts about 24 hours.

Thank you for your response. I asked the person who sent if it was an e check and they said no just sent direct from the bank. Not sure what that means .

It has been 5 days now with no clearance date.
