How to Cancel a Paypal Payment
So you entered the wrong amount, sent your payment to the wrong recipient, or made another mistake in Paypal. How do you cancel a paypal payment?
Well, that depends on the status of the payment. If the payment has already been “completed”, then you’ll have to reach out to the seller to request a refund. However, if the payment is still unclaimed or pending, you will have the ability to cancel your payment so that it doesn’t go through.
If you’re unsure of how to cancel a payment, or would like to know if your payment is eligible for cancellation, follow these steps:
- Login to your Paypal Account
- Click the “Activity” tab located at the top of your screen.
- Locate the payment you’d like to cancel
- Click “Cancel”. If your payment is eligible for cancellation, you’ll see a “Cancel” button under the payment. If you don’t see a cancel button, your payment is not eligible for cancellation, and you’ll have to reach out directly to the recipient.
- Click “Cancel Payment”
