Re: why did paypal charge me $1

Those are only temporary charges - they'll disappear in a few days.


It's the new way that some companies check to see if your credit/debit card is legit.  As long as Paypal doesn't follow up with a legit charge in that amount ( and they won't), the charge disappears in 3-4 days.
