    So, i'm new to the whole 'making payments on my own' thing.
    Basically, i saw a pair of shoes on eBay that i wanted, so i created an eBay account, and a PayPal account, and paid for it using PayPal (did this about 3 hours ago)... but i'm so confused on how this works - eBay says that i've paid using PayPal, and when i view the transaction it says the payment status is completed. I've linked PayPal to my debit card, and it says on PayPal that the transfer from my account to PayPal account is complete... But when i log onto my bank account, the balance is no different, so how have i paid for this?! so confused, someone please explain to me what's going on!!!
    Thanks

    If you've been told the payments has been confirmed then it's fine .. the money could take a couple of hours or even a couple of days to show on your bank account as come out. Don't panic - it often does this for debit card or online transactions.
