Is there a clearance date?
Then its gone as an echeque. You may have to wait the 5-7 days for it to clear.
Transfers from bank accounts are never instant, that is why when you buy something paypal credit the seller upfront for you and paypal take the wait for the funds to transfer to pay them back again, this is so you get any item without delay.
Takes 5-7 working days to transfer as Paypal use the slowest (cheapest) transfer option (electronie ie echeque) BUT funds normally leave your bank account from a few hours up to a few days later.
HOWEVER if you use the family / friends option or are adding funds to your paypal balance yourself then this time its you that takes the wait and not paypal. This is because its the free service from your bank account. If you funded it from a credit card and paid then it would be instant.
