Double check your bank account and make sure you really didn't get it. If you didn't get it, then call paypal and explain to them what happen.

Yassou Aunty, can't be any help at all I'm afraid, I think I've never encountered so much faff for trying to get a bit of money transferred, when I attempted it they wanted me to tell them 2 little amounts they'd put into my stirling account before they's transfer, naturally on the month no bank statement arrived, so now I'm going to have to telephone the UK bank which will keep me waiting ages on a machine to get the information. It really makes me angry as I never telephone the bank as its so expensive from over here.

Yassou Niece, that's o.k. appreciate your response. I don't know why everything has to be such a hassle. I know alot of it is just me. I hate calling anywhere anymore because i hate the fact u can never get a person, it's all that aggravating automation. I think it's a pain in the rear. I hope u are having a good day & get your problen straightened out. AUNTY.

For me, as i`m not from USA, it`s available just PayPal . So , i don`t know how to widraw the money on my account . But from paypal it`s easy , nomatter what you want to do with your money. You can pay on the internet with your paypal account or you just can widraw the money on your verified account . It`s pretty easy . I have an account at paypal for less than a year, but i used that account a lot . Since last year, paypal was not in my country .

I am sure, Jo....that you will get a lot of common sense advice from this post, and I truly do not think that I can help you. I just leave my money in PayPal, and use it when I am doing on line shopping for seeds, gifts...etc! Access your PayPal account and see if it is not there! Hugz & luv.

I think, dear friend, this is a case of "one hand washes the other." You give the gift right back....and I am truly grateful! Did you check your PayPal account to see if the money is there...tho? And forgot to "congratulate" you on your pay-out....YOU certainly deserve it...you had many great, top discussions last month! HUGZ & LUV!

It is simple. Go to paypal, enter your paypal email address and your password. You will see on the second set of links (under the ones for My Account, send money, etc. tabs marked overview, withdraw, history, etc. you will have to go to the withdraw link, press on it and it will show your bank account number (the last digits in it). (If it does not, you have to enter your bank account ID -ask your bank about what to enter. ) Just enter the amount you wish to transfer to your bank account and follow the instructions. Paypal does not automatically transfer the money to your bank account, because if it did, then if there were a dispute and someone claimed you cheated them, they could just as easily take all the money out of your bank account.

You're welcome. It's very simple, but often times Paypal and the other financial organizations realize that many of us need more details or that we assume that the money will automatically be transferred. My husband is the same way. He thinks that one money from one bank will be transferred to another bank, and they will automatically put it in his savings, but they could just as well put it in his checking or in the property account, the shared account. etc.

It takes a couple of days sometimes for payment to go through. Give it until around Tuesday and then question your bank and send paypal an email.

I know that when I request payment to be sent to my bank when I sell things on etsy, it generally takes 3 business days for it to appear in my account. Have you waited a few days already?

Did you start an account in paypal? Check that first. If you haven´t, do it. You can do it from mylot and be sure to put your email and a password you will remember (or one you can write down in a safe place. If you have done that, let´s go to step two. Hug

I also have paypal but I normally use my earnings to purchase stuff online.What I know is that you can link a credit or debit card to your paypal account and request that your paypal money be sent to your account however you would need to sign into your paypal account and link your paypal with your bank account in order for taht to happen .I hope this matter clears up soon ,all the best wishes

I am worse than you. I did fillin the forms with the help of friends here but then got a bit confused. I have never drawn a payment so it has mounted up - not enough to go on holiday with - but I am just letting it mount up for next year. I am sure thsat someone younger and brighter than me will assist you

Thanks Cynthi, for being so nice as usual but doubt seriouly u are worse than me. I had let mine build for as long as i had been on mylot , a year or more & decided i might better get it out in case something happened. I tried to go to mylot but it might as well be in another language for all the good i did, lol. I'm a dork when it comes to technology.

I don't know. I have always gotten a check. Possibly you could call your bank and see if a transaction is in the process and they will be able to help you.
