    I got a PayPal debit card with funds in it. My credit card asked for account number and routing number. I entered it in and paid my credit card bill using my PayPal debit card or I like to think.

    Today it shows credit card has been paid for but when I log into my PayPal account it shows no money was taken out. Does it take awhile for it show up? Or will it get reversed down the road? I don't know what happened or where the money came from because my credit card bill shows its paid for already and finalized it took 2 days but where did the money come from since I see no charges on my PayPal account?

    I have a couple of credit cards and whenever I pay either one of them, they're marked as paid on the credit accounts but the funds take about 1 business day to actually come out of my checking account.

    By the way, how did you get an account and routing number for a PayPal card? PayPal's not a bank, unless you're using a prepaid card?

    I used PayPal debit card. On my credit card it already credited me. For example,I owed them $500 I paid using my PayPal debit card and now my credit card it says I owe nothing the $500 been deducted already it took 2 days to do but when I log in my PayPal my $500 is still there so where did the money come from? Maybe PayPal glitch? Either way I'm happy. I just saved $500 dollars? Or maybe they'll reverse charges or charge it on my PayPal in the future. Kind of weird.

    Scale it up. :)

    Isn't this a preauthorized charge kind of thing, which will reflect only later on the balance? Although 2 days seem a bit too much time for that.

    I have no idea my first time doing it. I already paid for my other credit card bill just now in hopes same thing will happen again.

    Are you sure you actually paid via debit and didn't accidently use the "pay with paypal credit card and pay no interest for X months!" deal they always show now?

    Nope. But charges got reversed it took like 5 days. Just odd that it took that long. It appears I used wrong account number. I now know that PayPal debit cards don't give us account numbers so I guess PayPal can't be used to pay credit card debts.

    The only card that has an acct number and routing number is the prepaid card
