I transferred around 50 into my bank account from my PayPal account on Sunday, I still don't have it in my account. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for them to transfer money into your account?

It takes 5 to 7 WORKING days to get into your account normally.

It does tell you on paypal before you start the transfer how long it takes.

I transfer money from Payal every Friday evening and it lands in my bank account on the following Weds. If I don't transfer until quite late on the Weds, it will hit my bank account on the Thursday.

If you done yours on Sunday you should see it tomorrow (Friday).

It depends on who you bank with as well, I am with Natwest & it takes 3 days, but it took at least double that when I was with Nationwide!

Well, it's been 5 days, no money.

I suppose I'll have to check again on Monday or Tuesday then.

I got mine today - i'd transferred it on Sunday, so it's been 4 clear working days.

I'd check tomorrow Scott - things do still clear overnight on a Friday.

When you pay money into your account it's done as a credit/debit card payment so it instant.

Withdrawing money is done through the BACS system, same way cheques are cleared, how this is handled depends on your bank/account.

For examply if i had a premier account with my bank it takes 3 days, a normal account 5 days and a basic account 6 days.

Have a look how long it takes for a cheque to clear that will let you know.... yeah and banks are rip offs!

Threre are moves afoot to change the rules so that BACs will only take maximum 1 working day but needless to say banks are resisting this...
