If they do not have a Paypal account then the funds would show on your Paypal account as unclaimed OR unclaimed with a cancel option.

If there is a cancel option then cancel it, if there isn't and the funds remained unclaimed (ie they don't open a paypal account and claim the funds) then they will time out at 30 days and go back to you.

 

Be very careful as there are scams out there where they tell you to send a friends/family payment and then ''pretend'' that they have not received the funds knowing you are unlikely to be able to dispute friends/family payments. If its showing as SENT or PAYMENT or COMPLETED then the funds have successfully transferred to the email address that you sent the funds you that is linked to an ACTIVE Paypal account.
