hello. earlier today i linked my gcash american express virtual pay to paypal. i got charged 52.13 philippine pesos by paypal sg and they haven't refunded my money. it says that to confirm my account, they will charge even more ($1.95) and i'm worried that if i do that, i'll lose even more money and i don't know when i'll get it back. will i ever get that 52 pesos back without confirming and getting charged more?

Once you successfully confirm card, PayPal will issue a refund. It can take a week up to 30 days for your card to credit the refund.

 

PayPal charges $1.95 USD or in equivalent currency to confirm card. Once you add a card, PayPal makes one temporary charge with 4-digit code.

 

How do I confirm a debit or credit card that I've linked to my PayPal account?

Can PayPal resend the PayPal code for my debit or credit card so I can confirm it?

 


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

Same as with me, they deducted 52.13 from my balance. Before, when I link may AMEX to paypal, it only takes 5 minutes for them to refund it. But its almost two hours now and it hasn't been refunded. Did you get your refund?

Hello, did they refund the initial payment too? The ₱52.13? or just the $1.95 only?

Hello @lawless815

 

Welcome to the PayPal Community! I'm sorry to hear you're running into some issues with a recent transaction. It sounds like that 53.13 PHP may have just ben an authorization amount, which normally drops off within 3 business days. However, I would recommend reaching out to your bank / credit card company to inquire further about that charge. If they're unable to provide assistance, you're welcome to reach out to our Customer Support teams by clicking "Contact" at the bottom of any PayPal page. 

 

Good luck!
