PayPal is a well-known online payment system that makes it simple and secure to send and receive money. You could occasionally need to cancel a PayPal transaction, though. The procedures are as follows:

Select “Activity” from the tabs.
Locate the transaction you want to reverse.
Select “Cancel” from the menu.
There will be a confirmation window. To confirm, click the “Cancel Payment” button.
