It means 1 of 3 things:
1. simply an eBay glitch. You will see a completed payment transaction when you look in your Paypal account.
2. payment was funded via echeck. You will see an uncleared payment transaction in your Paypal account. If you click on the details link for the transaction, Paypal will tell you when they expect it to clear.
3. you had an invalid payment email address in the listing. Your payment is sitting somewhere in cyberspace. There will be NO payment transaction in your Paypal account.
