    I ask because about three weeks ago I made a purchase online, then another a week later from the same place. I have received what I paid for and got the usual Paypal receipts and confirmation yet the money STILL hasn't gone out of my account! I've never had a Paypal transaction take this long to go out before, including off this site. Is three weeks usual?

    They were large purchases so I want the money to go out sooner rather than randomly surprising me and going out at a time I least expect my balance to decrease, if that makes sense.

    It usualy goes out fairly quickly for me, like within a few hours, at most 24 hours, could be a problem with the sellers setup/account?

    I'm sure its fine and there is some reasonable explanation, have you tried contacting your bank or paypal about it?

    Ok now I'm seriously confused... I went onto my Paypal account to see what it said about my payments. The last four card numbers of the place it's taken out of don't match mine! How is that possible?! I've also checked and they don't match my expired one either (not like that should have worked). So the money have (successfully) gone out of a different card that I don't recognise on my passworded paypal account. I'm beyond confused.

    Edit: Only thing I can think is that it's my mum's card. Shizzle. It was something I shouldn't have been buying anyway cos it was so expensive yet now I'm going to have to tell her about it and it will show on her bank statement. Damn. I can't think who else's it would be.

    If youve ever used a parents card to buy somthing over the net, especially through paypal then that could be it!

    I remember before I had a visa card I couldnt book from my local cinama online, they only acepted mastercard, visa and visa debiti

    when I got a visa debit I went to book and it had saved details on my account from mums card and charged it to her, I had to let her know and give her the money before she panicked xD
