Why is my transaction status “sent to PayPal?”

If your transaction status is “sent to PayPal,” it means that we paid the merchant for you and you haven’t been charged yet.

We’ll charge the payment method you chose for this and any other small purchases after you spend a certain amount, or on a specific date, whichever comes first. For more information, view the details of the payment itself.
