PayPal charges a dollar every time you use a debit card to verify its authenticity. It will be refunded or applied towards the amount of your purchase.

Everytime you use paypal it takes a fee. How do you think they make money? So you should stop emailing them lol

It sounds like PayPal took the "verification" dollar from your account. Its basically used to verify information such as;name, address, account info..etc. Usually its takes about 5 days to get it returned to you. The good news is; it typically only happens one time!
