Next, you need to enter your email and password for your PayPal account.

When you have logged into your account you will be taken to a page that looks like the image below. You need to select ‘proceed to account overview’.

Once you have clicked that button you will be shown your account overview, showing you information such as your balance, recent transactions and other options to send/request money etc. You need to select the ‘see more activity’ button which is under the recent activity header. jewellery

When you are on your activity page you will be able to view all recent transactions as well as your pending payments.

If it does you can just click the button and follow the on-screen instructions. If this button is not there unfortunately you may have to wait until the payment has been processed and request a refund, you can call the PayPal team via the number above to find this out.
