normally the buyer can't cancel the payment themselves, the only way they can is if the payment says unclaimed/cancel, then the buyer can click cancel and cancel the payment.....what is the reason behind wanting to cancel?

You can't stop payment on a PayPal payment unless the seller has an incorrect email on the listing and it is stuck in cyberspace.


In that case you would see a Cancel option.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

If the buyer correctly cancelled their paypal payment, thru their credit card, how long until paypal posts the funds back to the buyer?
