As far as I know, the funds would be available in your Paypal account immediately; however, I would recommend checking in with Paypal Support to confirm this.
Hey Trevor, I got an order from my store through paypal but didnt set up my paypal account. i was notified to make a paypal account to recieve the payment. after the account was made i didnt recieve any payment as of today. On my shopify page its telling me that the payment is pending. i contacted paypal and they said they see not transaction to my account thats linked to my shopify store. so how will i recieve the payment ?
Best to reach back out to Paypal support with the transaction information for the order. If you open the order, scroll down to the order timeline, then click on the payment line, you'll find the authorization number and token number that Paypal can use to find the order and connect it to your account.
