Does this make a PayPal purchase instant?

I usually just use my debit card, or just let PayPal take money out of my checking account when making purchases. But sometimes this takes a day or 2 to clear. So my question is, if I take money out of my bank account and put it on my PayPal account directly does it transfer immediately since it's already on the PayPal account? Or does that take transfer/clear time as well?



When you transfer money from your account to your Paypal account the website says it will take a few days. I have done this numerous times and it always takes 2-4 days. If the money is already in your Paypal account, then if you buy something using paypal the transaction is immediate.
