Hi guys, ive bought something from someone on here and i realised i needed to update my bank account details on paypal so i did the updating they sent me two amounts i put them in and it says my paypal is now active again.
Well ive tried to send payment to this person and its saying
This payment has been initiated
what does that mean ? usually you just pay someone and thats it but ive tried this several times over the last few days and its saying the same thing
can someone explain what im doing wrong.
Many thanks joanne

why not just contact PayPal?


I had this issue when I first opened my account, it took a day or so to get sorted but did seem to go away all on its own. Your mileage may vary of course, best to drop them an email or something just in case (and explain in the thread why you're delayed making payment!)
