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

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

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Activity at the top of the page.
  3. Click Cancel beside the transaction you want to cancel.
  4. 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.
