Checking the status of a PayPal payment
To check the status of a PayPal payment:
On the PayPal Transaction Details page, you can see the status of the payment, as well as the amount and when it was sent. If your payment is pending or being held by PayPal, find out why.
Note: If your transaction happened more than 60 days ago, it will no longer be available on My eBay. However, if you know the buyer's email address, you may be able to find the payment information using PayPal's History page. On the History page, be sure to include the date of the transaction in the date range you're searching.
How long will it take for the money to appear in my account?
When a buyer sends you a payment through PayPal, the money is usually available in your PayPal account right away. However, in some cases, the payment might be "pending" for a few days, or it might be held by PayPal for up to 21 days. Find out more about pending payments.
How can I get money out of my PayPal account?
Once the payment has appeared in your PayPal balance, you can withdraw your money.
