paypal and bank account possibly charged twice?

Found 23rd Oct 2010
Hi misc,

I know a lot of you are ebayers, and use paypal etc more than me so I need a little bit of advice.

Just checked my online bank account (Nationwide) and it says I have two transactions from paypal for £19.95.

There should only be one for £19.95 as I have bought something off ebay and when i check my paypal account it only shows one purchase for £19.95 which is fine.

Has anyone had experience with this before? I cant see how I've been charged twice when my paypal only shows the one payment.

Or may my nationwide account update in a few days to only show just the one payment?

If it doesn't who would I contact in regards to it, my bank or paypal?

I know it sounds kinda dumb haha but I really have no idea as I've never had this issue.

thanks for any help
