How to confirm a paypal payment?

I sold something online and the seller told me he already payed for the item using paypal.

As for starters I don't trust the lad because he asked me to send the stuff asap (he needs it for Christmas), how can I confirm the transaction? Do I need to wait overnight to see it?

Sorry but I don't know how paypal works as I never used this system before.

Thanks.

You should have received an email that a payment was made to your account. You should also be able to see it by logging in to PayPal and viewing your account history - »history.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/we···_history
You should see a Payment From record.

Yep, but I wouldn't rely on the email since we all know they can be fake.

No email and no account history on line means no payment made. I've never not received an email from PayPal. I've received a few phishing fakes, but all valid emails came through quickly.

Thanks guys,

I got the e-mail but when can I see that transaction in my Bank account?

I mean how is the money transferred to my Bank account?

Cheers.

It is in your PayPal account. You need to log in to your PayPal account and transfer the amount out.

it won't go directly to your bank account.
You can verify that it reached your paypal acct, but then you'll need to withdraw to your bank account, check or credit card.

edit: if you don't have paypal, then you'll need to sign up w/ the email address you received the money at, set up your bank account with paypal then withdraw. (the initial bank account setup could take a few days)

Then how did he pay you? You need to have a paypal account as far as I know.

you can send money to any email address, but the receiver will need to sign up to actually receive it.
