Hello, @antiminimum.

 

Welcome to the Shopify Community.

 

The time it takes for PayPal to process a payment depends on several factors, including the payment method used and the country where the payment is being sent.

 

If you are sending money from your PayPal balance or a linked bank account, the payment should be processed immediately. However, if you are using a credit or debit card, it may take a few minutes to process the payment.

 

Additionally, if you are sending money internationally, it may take longer for the payment to be processed due to currency conversion and other factors. In general, PayPal states that most payments are processed within 24-48 hours. It's important to note that while PayPal processes payments quickly, the time it takes for you to receive the funds may vary depending on your bank or payment method.

 

Furthermore, if you'd like this to be looked into more closely, I encourage you to contact PayPal Support as they'll be best suited to advise further.  

 

I hope this helps!
