How will my PayPal Pay in 3 transaction appear in my PayPal activity?
Every PayPal Pay in 3 transaction will appear in your PayPal activity feed as the full purchase amount under the relevant merchant’s name as a ‘purchase’. This is to reflect the total purchase amount and is not reflective of the PayPal Pay in 3 instalment plan or any payments already made using your specific card. By using PayPal Pay in 3, PayPal pays the merchant upfront and spreads the cost over 3 payments. The first payment is taken on the date of purchase and the next two payments are automatically withdrawn over the following two months. The first payment and subsequent two payments will each be reflected as separate transactions in your PayPal activity and represent the actual payments made towards your purchase.
