My account and baking shows that a payment through my credit card was successfully sent. However, my recipient has an account balance of $0 and got the message "transaction does not exist" when he tried to receive the money. What went went and how do I fix this?

What does it say on the transaction on your paypal account?

What country is the recipient in?

Which account type does the recipient have?

Did you use goods/services or friends/family.
