how long for paypal to transfer money to bank account?

In general, how long does it usually take for Paypal to transfer funds to your bank account? I know it says 3 to 4 business days, but I'm wondering if this is the actual time or perhaps the longest it could possibly take?

I've done it 5 or 6 times now and every time it takes 3-4 business days to arrive in my bank account. I haven't seen it come quicker than that yet.

The customer is not always right - but you should always make them feel as if they are!

It used to take 3-4 days in the past but this year it seems to take 2 days at most here in North Carolina :-)

It takes 3-4 business days just as PayPal advises.

No one can predict how long it takes your bank to post the deposit on your online statement either....


Some post faster than others.
