I transferred money to my bank account from PayPal. I thought it would only transfer on business days, but the status went from pending to completed. Does that indicate that the money is currently in the bank, or is it just some kind of verification, and it won't be in until business days?
It may be that the transfer completed on Paypal's end. Your bank probably will not make the credit until the next business day.
I might add, if you use Paypal to collect funds on a regular basis then it would be a good idea to have a premier account and aply for their free debit card. That way, you can use the funds as soon as they are available in Paypal and no need to transfer back to your bank account.
It can take a few days, and I agree it'll be on a business day.
I think the best way to make sure is to check the bank account and see if it shows up in "available balance" and/or if the transaction shows as a pending transaction. PayPal may have done its part sooner than is usually expected, but what matters is what the bank account shows as an available deposit. From my experience with PayPal, if they say a transaction (coming in or going out) is completed, it is. What's pending within the bank account is a different thing.
