I tried sending money to a friend via PayPal. She did not receive it in 24 hours. How long does it take?

On my transaction report it states
Money Sent JUL 13 2017 to XXX@XX
XXX@XX hasn't accepted yet.

If you sent the funds directly from your Paypal account they should have received it almost instantly. Double check the e-mail address. If you sent it from another source there used to be certain sources such that the funds had a 3-4 day hold.

I've recently had problems with PP increasing their hold times for bank-to-bank "friends/family/gift" payments.

I tried Google Wallet instead, and it was OMG FAST. I did that because I read good reviews of it on some techie article site. We both had a debit card set up, and not only did it transfer instantly, it memo posted to my bank account instantly. The whole thing was done in seconds.

Same deal with an email or a phone number.

So with some of the other issues I've had with PP in the last year or so, I am glad there are other options.
