Why hasn’t the eCheque I sent cleared yet?

An eCheque is an electronic funds transfer from your bank account to another customer’s PayPal account. It usually takes up to 7 working days to clear, but in some cases, it may take longer.

The payment may show “pending” in your PayPal account. You'll be able to confirm it's an eCheque payment once you open the transaction details. Here you'll also find the expected payment clearing date.
