I won something on ebay, paid right away, but it said in my paypal account after a couple days it was unclaimed. I talked to the seller and they were having problems with their account and couldn't get to the part of their account were they could accept/confirm the payment, so they told me to just cancel it, so I did. I was transferring my money from my bank account (I don't hold a balance in my paypal account). At the time there was a pending withdrawal (transfer to paypal) in my bank account for the amount. I cancelled the transaction 36 hours ago, and it says that the cancellation was successful and complete. Now the withdrawal/transfer to paypal is posted in my bank account (the money is missing) so I figured it should be in my paypal account (buy item-->initiates sweep from my bank account through paypal and to the seller-->cancel transaction before it gets to the seller-->money reverts to my paypal account-->manually transfer it back into my bank account) but it's not showing--my paypal balance is zero, nobody's been paid, and the money is not in my bank account. I'm assuming it's somewhere in purgatory and should be showing up in my paypal account, but when? How long does this take? What a pain in the ass, this is why I don't bother with ebay/paypal for anything unless there's something I really want and really can't get elsewhere.
