Question

I paid $5 in payPal in the second step but did not respond after payment and showed a balance of 0.

Yesterday I used PayPal to pay for 5$, but 22 hours passed. I’m still in the second step.

Hello there,

When using PayPal, your account balance will update after your payment is processed, which often takes several hours due to PayPal’s processing. PayPal also sometimes holds payments for up to 72 hours, meaning PayPal has received your money but hasn’t sent it to us yet, but the payment will still apply once PayPal releases it.

Hope that this helps!

Hi ZZZJJX - I see that the PayPal deposit was delayed for exactly 24 hours, but is posted to your account now.

Taking a look, it was a PayPal triggered delay. They seemed to flag the transaction as risky and took time to approve eventually approve it.

Let us know if you have any further issues.

Thanks, Zach
