    paypal acct statement- can i see quick what i bought? 7th Jan 18 at 9:15 PM
    hi guys, I'm just wondering when I print off my statement, can I see at a glance, or is there a column title I can see, that will tell me without having to open each individual transaction to see what ive bought.


    In each statement there are maybe 7 coulmns inc weird buyers company names etc, really all I need is date item and price... its for my accts/ business and would save a huge amount of time.
    cheers

    No. Paypal doesn't record what you bought any more than your credit card statement does - it just shows how much you paid, when and to whom.

    OP, depending on your Paypal view: activity: advanced filters: payments.

    That should tell you what you've paid for. From that you should be able to work out your purchases. There are other ways, but that is the simplest.
