Did I pay?

    Fellas, I need help!

    I just bought an item for ebay and paid for it via paypal. I've connected my paypal account to my bank account before.

    My paypal account says 'Balance: £0.00. Add/Withdraw'. Next to that, in transactions, now that I've paid for the item it says '- £1.00'.

    I looked at my bank account ,which I assumed it'd automatically take it out of, and the money in my bank account is unchanged.

    Should I have added money from my bank account to my paypal balance?

    If patpal said you paid then you did and the bank will take a bit to catch up.

    You probably had it set to "pay after delivery" and it'll come out of your bank balance in around 14 working days, depending.

    All of my eBay purchases have worked out like that apart from international purchases.

    Bank payments on PayPal take a few days, if there is no money in your bank you'll still get your item but your PayPal will go into negative balance and they'll chase you.. It's the normal process of paying via a bank account instead of a credit/debit card
