Ebay says payment pending, Paypal says completed?

I am concerned about a payment that I sent yesterday.  I won an item off ebay.com, after winning the auction I paid with a credit card though paypal.  I received an email receipt from Paypal, the transaction is "completed" on my paypal account.  However eBay has a small hourglass symbol, saying the payment is pending. The item I bought was in GBP and I paid in USD so I don't know if currency conversion has anything to do with this or not.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Check your PayPal account to see if the payment is unclaimed? If so, that means the seller needs to call PayPal and provide or verify some information. The conversion to another currency should not affect the clearance of a payment. Best of luck

Does it sat 'okay to ship' on your paypal transaction details page?

If so, then it's okay to ship'

If it doesn't say that, wait until it does.

It is common for a lag between what is done at PP and what is shown at eBay.. 

 

no worries it will catch up .. 

 

Just sit tight and await your item.
