So i ordered a Roku player for my Parents last week, shipping was pretty fast (3 days for FedEx ground) anyways my girlfriend and i decided to get her parents the same gift! Since xmas is just around the corner, i was going to place the order this morning, i went through the 99% of the process ( Name, address, yada yada) But stopped before i chose my payment method. I droppped the menu down to paypal, and noticed i needed to leave for work (with snow in Vegas) i just back out and closed my browser. As im leaving, i hear and email pop up, i take a glance and its roku, confirming my order for $127.73 shipped FedEx 2day payed with paypal! Now im lost, i logged into my paypal and there was nothing pending..My Wamu account..nothing...ALL DAY nothing, so i guess ill wait for a traxcking number? I called after class but they where closed...so ill shoot for tomorrow...but isnt that strange? If they send me the unit and i dont get charged what should i do? Is this there fault? I have no issue paying, but i pretty sure it wont go unnoticed.

If you didn't pay them then they'll notice and they won't send you anything. The invoices are automatically generated and sent to you even if you don't pay on some websites. The actual item is sent to you once the payment is cleared.

Thats what i figured, but i have bought stuff on ebay and used my paypal account (which snags funds from my wamu account) when i have had $0 at that time, paypal take 3 days before it takes funds out of my bank account! Idk why it takes so long

Yes PayPal takes up to 3 to 5 business days to take funds out of your bank account but you can always store some money directly in your PayPal account so you won't have to wait 3 days next time you purchase an item.

you don't need to leave funds in your paypal account.

As long as you have someway of getting funds to paypal you can pay with 0 balance and they'll immediatley charge your funding source.

PayPal always takes money from me the next business day, or sometimes on Saturdays (Jerks!).

I'm assuming gigabot is correct and they sent you an invoice. Based on your OP, I'm guessing you got far enough through the vendor checkout process and the invoice was generated. I wonder if there is an order status page on their site you can check. The amount of time PayPal takes to withdraw money from you could also vary on your bank policies, and if it's an e-check or an Instant Transfer.

All that aside, it would be un-ethical to receive something that you didn't pay for. Regardless of who would have made the mistake.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
