Hello everyone

Does anyone know how to determine what one PayPal balance were on a specific date?

I downloaded a transaction history, but I can't figure out where to check the balances. I tried calculating the balance by looking at the transactions directly before and after the required date, but this is not reliable because PayPal sometimes pays for a purchase in one currency from the balance in another currency, so sometimes the balance of another currency would have been impacted by a given transaction, but that effect is not shown in the transaction history.

Essentially, I need to figure out what was my PayPal balance on 1 January 2015 and 1 January 2016, in EUR, USD and GBP. A single EUR amount would also be useful to me.

Any easy answers?

Samuel

You can download monthly statements under "Reports". I believe you can find what you need in them.

Where is the "Reports" option? I don't see it anywhere.

You only get this in a business account. Personal accounts don't have them, but why would you use a personal account for business purposes?

It's possible that PayPal doesn't offer the reports in all countries, of course.

Have you tried setting the 1st of January as start date (under 'Activity') and clicking 'Detailed' on the right hand side?
As far as I know you can only see records for the last two years with a personal account.
