How do I view my PayPal Debit Card Transaction History?

You can view your transaction history on your Activity page.

You’ll see the recipient, payment date and payment amount. Select the payment to see further details.

You can also print your statements by selecting Statements in the top right corner of your Activity page.

Withdrawal statuses:

  • Pending - A debit card purchase can be Pending for these reasons:
  • It can take up to 7 days for money to move from your PayPal Balance account to the merchant.
  • The merchant uses the hold as an authorization, as is the case when you check into a hotel.
  • The merchant (typically gas stations) will send out a small inquiry to make sure that you have the money available. Check back in a few days as the “Pending” status will likely change to either “Expired” or ‘Completed”. See “Expired” and “Completed” status definitions below.
  • Placed – A temporary hold has been placed on the money in your account for a purchase. This releases when the payment is completed.
  • Completed – Your debit card purchase has completed.
  • Debit Card Credit Received – This means that the merchant has issued you a refund. The money has been credited to your PayPal Balance account.
  • Expired – This appears 5 days after the authorization was initiated. If the merchant does not collect the money, they are released back into your PayPal Balance account. The authorization is still available for the merchant to capture the money and complete the transaction.
  • Canceled Transfer – This is found in the details of the expired authorization. The merchant did not collect the money within 4 days. At this time, any money that was placed on hold is credited back to your PayPal Balance account. The merchant can still collect the money at any time.
