PayPal starts an electronics fund transfer (EFT) from your bank account upon the completion of your transaction. The process depends on the speed of the EFT transfers. It usually takes three to five business days. If you bank cancels your EFT transaction, you will require a credit card to backup the instant transfer. This usually happens if you account does not have a sufficient balance. In such situations, PayPal involuntarily bills the credit card linked to your account.
