Im kind of confused, i received a payment on ebay with an echeck,so it says eChecks work like paper checks and take your bank several business days to process.so does the money get sent to my paypal or a bank account?.
is there anyway to make it clear faster?.what do you recommend i do thanks

You'll get the money to your PayPal balance.

When I make an eCheck payment, when will the money be debited from my bank account?

PayPal will send the request to your bank immediately. It will take up to 4 business days for the electronic funds transfer to be completed and for the funds to become available to the recipient of your payment.

If your bank initially declines the electronic funds transfer, the payment may be delayed for up to an additional 7 business days. In this case, the Expected Clearing Date listed in the recipient's transaction history will be updated to reflect the new date.


Why does it take so long for my recipient's account balance to reflect my eCheck payment?

Because we must wait for the electronic funds transfer to clear your bank account, PayPal cannot credit your recipient's account balance immediately.

No. :)
They take money from Buyer's BA and transfer it directly to your PayPal balance. :)

Lol, you're welcome. Although, to be honest, I don't see the point with eChecks. The Buyer could've just send you money instantly via PP. The only thing that comes to my mind is that the Buyer wanted the product, but he didn't have any funds on his BA at that moment.
Anyway, let us know when you get $$$! ;)

Also,

When some sellers receive payments, we may hold the money in a pending balance for up to 21 days to help make sure that there are funds in the seller's account to cover potential refunds or claims. The funds may be released early if PayPal determines that the transaction has been fulfilled and customers are satisfied.
While funds are pending, the money belongs to you but isn't available to spend or withdraw.

Or it could be like what happened to me. When I first setup my bank account with PayPal it would only take eChecks until I added a debit card, I don't know what was up with that but that's what happened haha.

I´d wait. He obviously can't send it instantly if he has no CCs linked to his account. (God Bless PayPal :D) ;)
