How do we handle a "PayPal payment you received has been reversed"?


We are a small nonprofit. On December 25th, we received a $3 donation via PayPal (yes, $3). We entered the donation in QB Online.

Today, we received an email notifying us that the donation has been reversed, the transaction date is today, Jan 4th. (again, this is for $3...) I looked in our PayPal account, and everything has been reflected there. The email was, "PayPal payment you received has been reversed".

How do we handle this in QB Online? I tried to enter a negative sales receipt, but it doesn't allow that. It doesn't help that the reversal happened after the end of the calendar year.

Thank you.

Greetings, @radar!


It'll be my pleasure to help you handle a reversed payments.


You'll have the option to Delete or Void manually the deposited transaction.


Here's how:

  1. Open the transaction.
  2. Go to the More option.
  3. Choose Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm.

Here's a screenshot you can check for visual reference.



Feel free to read this article about deleting transactions: How to Void or Delete an Invoice or Other Transactions?
