PAYPAL Unclaimed How to Claim: A Guide to Reclaim Your Funds
Have you ever received a payment through PayPal that you didn’t claim? Maybe it was a surprise gift from a friend or an unexpected refund from an online purchase. If you’ve left it unclaimed, you might be wondering how to retrieve those funds. Fear not, as PayPal provides a simple process to help you claim any unclaimed payments.
To begin the process, you’ll need to log in to your PayPal account. Once logged in, navigate to the “Summary” tab and click on the “Money” section. From there, select the “Money, banks, and cards” option and click on “Unclaimed.” This will display a list of any unclaimed payments associated with your account.
Next, you’ll need to review each unclaimed payment and click on the specific payment you wish to claim.

Upon claiming the payment, PayPal will credit the amount to your PayPal account balance. You can then use these funds for purchases, transfer them to your linked bank account, or withdraw them via an eligible withdrawal method, such as a debit card.
