To pre purchase shadowlands…if I use PayPal…is it instant like credit cards or take up to 24 hours?
Knowing PayPal, it probably takes upwards of 72 hours or so. They are hands-down one of, if not the slowest payment method for anything under the sun.
Blizzard has to wait for purchase confirmation from PayPal, and PayPal has to wait for confirmation from the financial institution you select through them.
I used Paypal once and yes, it did take days for payment to go through.
I use paypal and don’t have an issue with any purchases here. Last week I bought Battle net balance and it was added to my account in few minutes.
I think the key with paypal use is to make sure your account is totally verified.
