How reliable is paying via PayPal?


Just curious. I wired some money through the cPanel from PayPal on Thursday and it’s taking a while to clear. Just curious if this is normal and whatnot.


Is this for a new account or an existing account?

Existing. I’m simply trying to keep my account open so I paid off the next month via PayPal.


Depends if you have funds already in your Paypal account, if the funds are drawn against a credit card, of if the funds are firstly transferred from a linked bank account then on through the Paypal system.

At the fast end, I find transactions from a funded Paypal account (or via credit card) go through immediately, and at the slow end transactions which require funds be first transferred from a linked bank account can take up to 3 business days (much like a cheque clearance waiting period).

Alright thanks. It’s from my bank account and it went through Thursday night so I guess by Monday or Tuesday morning it’ll clear.


Isn’t PayPal the most popular gateway?

Oh I’m sure of it. My year of service with DH has been nothing but enjoyable thus far.


You should have paid with a credit card. Have you read their “money back guarantee policy?”

“Credit card and Google Checkout payments only.”
