I have bought several items on ebay recently and it says that they are paid for but the money has not been taken out of my bank account. When should I see the monet taken out?

Answer depends on the bank, not paypal. Usually a day or two, never more than a week.

Login to PayPal and look at the status of the payment.
If you don't have a credit card on file with them they process as an eCheck and there will be a date there for estimated clearing.
If you have a credit card on file they'll transfer the money to the seller instantly so it will show as Completed. They'll charge your card if the bank transfer fails.
