When you pay a seller it is never instant, paypal CREDIT the seller the funds and then paypal take the wait for the funds to transfer from your funding source to paypal to reimburse them.

 

They do this so that their is no delay with the despatch of your item.

 

They tend to only take that risk though as long as you pay with a bank account BUT have a back up card linked to your paypal account as well OR you just pay via a card.

 

Funds can leave your bank account from a few hours up to a few days post payment.
