Log on to your account. Press “history” and then press “Payment Sent” if you are looking for the funds that transferred out and press “Payment Received” if you are looking for the transaction about the payments or earnings from other PayPal account or from other companies.

Processing Time

The next question is “how long does it take to transfer money from PayPal to bank”? The processing time for transferring PayPal funds to your bank account is 2 to 4 business days (for other countries). If your bank is located in the US, the processing time is 3 to 4 business days. While withdrawing funds to your card is 5 to 7 business days.

When counting the business days or the processing time, do not include the holidays. Here is the list of PayPal payment holidays for the United States; New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Processing Fee

If your bank is in the US, transferring funds to your bank account is free of charge. If your bank is located in other countries, there will be a certain fee for a specific “funds”. For example, in the Philippines, if you are transferring PayPal funds amounting to P7,000 or approximately $150, it is free of charge. If you are transferring lower than P7,000, the processing fee is P50. If you are sending money from PayPal to your card, there will be a fee of P250.00 for other countries and if your card is from USA, there is no processing fee.
