I used a new credit card on my paypal account. and I was charged £1 on my bank statement but doesn't appear on my paypal statement. I called my bank they said it was charged by paypal. so anyone got charged like this before..?

no they dont, if they did charge you, it will appear on your paypal account activity.

If you are sending money Paypal do not charge.
If you are authorising a new credit card they may put a small
amount on "hold" but this should not show on your statement as it's not actually taken...

if it's a new card and you register it do they not put charge amounts on and then add it as credit to your paypal account? Or is a £1 pre-charge which will disappear off your account in a day or two?

i think you will find this is a cash advance charge by your credit card supplier, as some see paypal as cash advance and not a retail sale. i had the same thing happen to me when i purchased euros from web using credit card.
get onto the card supplier and give them sh it
