If you plan to sell products on eBay, setting up a PayPal account will give you a marked advantage. Many eBay buyers look for the PayPal logo when they browse auctions, and many of those buyers are reluctant to purchase from sellers who do not accept PayPal. Fortunately, PayPal is easy to use, and the payment service also makes it easy to refund payments in the event an order is cancelled or a return is permitted.

Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Log on to your PayPal account and go to the "My Account" section of the page. Click on the "History" tab.

    Look for the payment you wish to cancel and click "Cancel" in the "Order Status/Actions" column. Click "Cancel Payment" to cancel the payment.
