how long does it take for paypal to take the money out of your bank account?

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.

Wish my fingers would pay closer attention to what I spell correctly.

Anywhere from 3-5 business days or so.

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.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
