    I setup an account with Paypal but my limit is $750 until I verify my account. I must wait for Paypal to charge my Credit Cart and enter a four digit number on their site from beside tis payment on my credit card bill. My question is how long does it usually take before this will appear on my credit card? I just can't wait to order the HS10 :)

    They will have charged you CC account straight away. the problem is you cannot find out what the figure was until your statement comes through. You can however call your Credit Card company and find out straight away over the phone. Just phone up and say you want to double check what your last few transactions are :).

    I've been checking online but I guess that can take 24 hours to show also

    Thanks Groundy

    Be aware though that PayPal advise you not to do this and if they receive notification or a complaint from your credit card company that you've done this, they'll freeze your account.

    They advise waiting for your statement (on-line or paper) - I'd follow that advice.

    It took about 4 days to appear on my statement online, when I opened a PayPal account.

    I know PayPal say this but I wouldn't take much heed of it ;). At the end of the day you have every right to ask your credit card company your last few transactions - I just wouldn't make a habit out of it :). Perhaps this is more of a problem in the US as I doubt and UK CC companies would complain in this manner.

    Paypal are one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I have been trying to get my $1.95 billed for nearly a month. Everytime I ask for an explanation I get a form reply telling me how to use Paypal. They don't appear to actually read emails sent to them, they just send back a standard reply. I am giving it two more days then I am just going to wire PriceJapan.:mad:
