Can I cancel a PayPal payment request or invoice that I've already sent to someone?

If you've changed your mind after sending a payment request or an invoice, you can cancel it before it's paid. Here's how:

  1. Go to Activity.
  2. Click Cancel beside the transaction you want to cancel.
  3. Click Yes.

A payment request will expire automatically after 30 days if it's not paid by then. An invoice will stay valid unless you’ve selected a due date before sending it to your recipient.
