How to cancel an PayPal e-cheque from e-Bay

If you do not have sufficient funds in your PayPal account for e-Bay items that you have paid for using the e-Bay interface PayPal will raise a direct debit aka an e-cheque that works in a similar way to a normal cheque, in that it will take 5-7 working days to clear, however there are several differences here is a list of a PayPal e-cheque status as seen in e-Bay.

  • Cleared: The funds transfer to the recipient has completed
  • Uncleared: The transaction is still processing from the bank
  • Failed: We were unable to obtain the funds from your bank and the payment to the recipient has not completed
  • Canceled: You have cancelled the eCheque. If you cancel an eCheque the funds will still be withdrawn from your bank account but will be credited to your PayPal account balance

NOTE: Only the seller can cancel the e-cheque using their PayPal account when logged in goto:

Go to Account Overview > History > Find the relevant payment > Details > Cancel Payment under 'Cancel this eCheque payment' > Review the information and include a message to buyer > Cancel Payment.

You will not have the option on yours, if you want to cancel it yourself you will need to do so via your online banking, or if this is not possible telephone banking can be used.

If you receive PayPal funds during the this time and want to send the seller's money sooner for your items, here is a tested method that will work;

Pay directly using PayPal to the e-mail acount of the seller, note you must click payment for goods not e-Bay in your PayPal account, its a good idea to send a message inlcuding the long e-Bay item number and also ask the seller to cancel the e-cheque using their PayPal account, they will see that you have sent the correct funds instanlty

Summary:
To avoid lengthly transactions I suggest that you make sure that you have a buffer or about £30 in your PayPal account that is attached to your e-Bay shop, it only takes 2/3 working days to send from your verified bank account, if you also add a direct debit card you can avoid using e-cheques as they will never been generated by PayPal, if you ever phone PayPal you will need to quote your 6 digit ref number you will find this @ https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/helpscr?cmd=_contact-phone

I payed for an item on ebay payment paypal. The item was cancelled by ebay who informed me seller had put back money into my account from where I payed.


Which account?
Did you have a "positive" balance in your PayPal account?
If so, PayPal will refund your payment back to that account.

If you did not have a balance, PayPal charged your credit-card when you paid. PayPal will "reverse" the charge. Go online to your bank, and check "recent credit-card transactions", to see the original charge, and the "reversal".

why have I paid for an item an seller claims not to have received funds.


If it was paid for with PayPal, it may be possible that the seller's email was entered incorrectly, in which case even though it will show as deducted from your account, it will not show up in the seller's account. You wound need to cancel the first payment and then re-send it. it may be helpful to speak directly to PayPal. Their number can be found here-

You need to transfer funds from your bank account to your PayPal account.
E-bay doesn't directly access your bank account.
