Can I cancel a payment that I've already sent?
Here's how to cancel an unclaimed payment:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click Activity near the top of the page.
- Click on the transaction you'd like to cancel.
- Click Cancel.
- Click Cancel Payment.
If there's no Cancel button beside the unclaimed payment, this means the recipient is still considering whether to accept or refuse the payment. If a payment remains unclaimed for 30 days, it'll be refunded to you automatically.
If your payment's status is "Completed", please contact the recipient to issue a refund to you. If you didn't make this transaction or if you didn't receive the items or services you paid for, you can file a dispute in the Resolution Centre by logging in to your PayPal account.
