    Let me tell you my story.

    1 year ago I created a PayPal and linked it to a debit card hoping I would make some quick cash.
    Things didn't go as well as planed, meaning I learned that there is no such thing as quick cash, so I terminated the debit card.
    However, I didn't remove it from PayPal, so last month after I made $10 (there were a few cents) I just left it in my PayPal account. Today I log into it to verify a payment for something and I see that my money has been automatically send to my debit card and that the transfer was successful.

    So, what happened? I didn't know that they send you your money on the first of every month. How can I deactivate it?

    P.S.
    I removed the debit card now, so it won't happen again, but if I link another one there will it happen again?

    Can we change that? I don't want to bother with that. If I want money on my card I will click "withdraw".

    Bosnia, actually, since the Austria-Hungary occupation we are called Bosnia and Herzegovina, they weren't smart enough to distinguish the difference between a province and a country.
    Bosnia is it's original name.

    I knew this was happening with Indian accounts:

    "PayPal users in India are not allowed to hold money in their PayPal account as balance. Instead, all payments received into your PayPal account must be withdrawn to your linked bank account in India."

    Never heard this happening with accounts registered in another country. Weird.

    Well, they sometimes make changes and people don't see them, I don't check my email or PayPal account daily, I have other worries.
