payment was initiated and is being processed through paypal, what does this mean, how do i get my money into my paypal account

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.

Or your eBay and PayPal accounts aren't linked so payment can't transfer to your PayPal account through eBay Checkout
Or you didn't confirm your email address when you registered it to PayPal
Record of all successful payments is shown immediately on the seller's PayPal account.
You must login to verify payments are Completed and OK to SHIP before shipping.
