When I make an eCheck payment, when will the money be debited from my bank account?
PayPal sends the request to your bank as soon as you make the payment. Just like a regular check, it can take up to 5 business days for the payment to clear and the money to be deposited into the recipient’s PayPal account.
A bank may decline an eCheck payment. For example, a payment will be denied if you don’t have enough money in your bank account. If this happens, the payment can be delayed up to 7 more business days.
You’ll always find the date we expect the payment to clear on the Transaction Details page. To find out your eCheck’s expected clearing date:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click History at the top of the page.
- Click the Details of the transaction. The expected clearing date is next to the status of the transaction.
