Welcome to the PayPal Community! I'm sorry to hear there may be a problem with a refund. Here's some information that may help!
To check the status of a payment, please log on to your PayPal account and check the original transaction in your Activity. Click on the transaction to display the Details Page. If the status says Refunded or Reversed, then you received a refund. If it says Completed, then the seller hasn't issued a refund.
If the original payment was funded by a credit or debit card, any refund would be sent back to the card and it could take up to 30 days for your card issuer to post a credit on your statement. If the original payment was funded by a PayPal account Balance or a bank account, any refund would be deposited into your PayPal account Balance.
If needed, you could open a Non Receipt dispute and then escalate the dispute to a claim. Once a dispute is escalated to a claim, PayPal would ask the seller for confirmation that the merchandise was shipped to you. If the seller can't provide confirmation (usually a tracking number), then PayPal would issue a refund.
Here's a link with more information on disputes and how to submit one through the Resolution Center - https://www.paypal.com/uk/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-open-a-dispute-with-a-seller-when-a-purchase-goe.... And here's more information on how to escalate a dispute to a claim - https://www.paypal.com/uk/selfhelp/article/FAQ1677.
I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for taking the time to post your question here, and thanks for being a part of the PayPal Community!
You would need to the PayPal HTML variables. There's ton of info here. The variable you need to use is "amount". Note, you cannot include any currency symbols as the Checkout Screen will error - for examle, if you enter $5.00, it won't work however 5.00 will. Below is a basic Donation example that demonstrates how to enter an amount on your web page. Just replace the "business" variable value with your PayPal email address or your Merchant ID. Copy the code to a blank page, you can even use Notepad, save the file as Test.html and then you can open it with your browser, enter an amount and there you go.

Sign up required, laws in place "US Patriot Act" "Bank Secrecy Act" overruled by FINCEN require IDs of all person(s) transacting and that the record be kept for 7 years (might be 5 years) from the date of the transaction.
"*Funds go right into their PayPal account, and if they don’t have one signup is quick and free."
So the answer is no.
Thanks for your reply. No, he has not received the money. I sent it to him, but it is not showing anything withdrawn from my bank, nor does PayPal show anything processing/pending. Nothing is showing on his end. I will let him know the info you provided me, though. I wasn't aware of the "18 or older" legality. I'll let him know that, as well.
I cannot cancel anything, as nothing is showing for me to cancel. I agree: Perhaps better to just wire him the money, or find some other way to get it to him vs using PayPal. Thanks again for your help.
PayPal will first check your PayPal balance to see if there is enough money to cover the payment.
If you have enough money in your balance, PayPal will use it to make the payment.
If you have some money in your PayPal balance but not enough, PayPal will use that balance plus another payment method linked to your account.
If you don’t have any money in your PayPal balance, PayPal use another payment method linked to your account.
When you don’t have a PayPal balance or don’t have enough in your PayPal balance, PayPal will use your bank account as the default payment method unless you select a different way to pay.
To make sure you’re using the payment method you want, check the Review Your Payment page.
You will be able to select a preferred funding method for payments made through the regular checkout process as well as Goods and Services via Send Money. You will also have the option to select a different preferred method for online purchases vs. in-store purchases.
If you have PayPal Smart Connect, PayPal Plus MasterCard, PayPal Extras MasterCard, PayPal Debit MasterCard, or eBay MasterCard, you can make that your default payment method. Once a payment has been sent to another PayPal account, the funding source cannot be changed.
That's a great question. As long as the confirmed address remains the same the address should still be considered confirmed. If you're unsure, it never hurts to contact the merchant if you have any questions.

Welcome to the community!
I'm sorry that I can't answer in Spanish, but I'm happy to provide an answer in English.
A refund on a payment made with a credit card goes back to the same card that was used, regardless of whether or not it is still active on the account.
If the card that you used for the purchase is now expired, the credit card issuer should be issuing you a new card associated with that same account. Any refunds processed to the old number should still go into that account and be reflected in the balance.
I hope this helps!
