    Can't Remove Bank Account 15th Sep 18 at 10:28 AM
    Hi, regarding my PayPal account. I had a pre-approved payment come out of an account which has no money in it last week, im now trying to remove this account because i never used it. however i get this message
    "We're sorry, you can't remove this bank account because of a pending transaction. Please try again later. "

    How long will i have to wait until i can remove it ? THanks

    Once the transaction has cleared and you have paid it.

    It's been saying that since tuesday.

    I've just transferred some money into the account in the hope it pays it and clears

    It will bounce back, and then say you owe the money. After you can update it. Just be patient

    You may have to contact them to remove it - a bank account I tried to remove last week came up with the same error, even though I hadn't made a Paypal transaction with it for several months. Removed instantly over the phone.

    I came into this world with nothing and I've got most of it left.

    I've been trying to remove a bank account that I no longer use from paypal for over a year now, always get that message every time I try even when no pending payments. I've tried emailing paypal but only ever get automated reply.
