Double check the following:

  1. You’re looking for contributions under the right Paypal account, using the the right email address.
  2. Make sure you connected your WishList to the right Paypal account, using the right email address.
  3. Keep in mind Paypal doesn’t notify when a contribution has been made. This is for security reasons. So, when someone makes a contribution to your WishList, we ask them “Did you complete your contribution?” when they return from Sometimes people click “Yes”, even though they didn’t successfully complete the payment over Paypal. This is confusing, we know. But we understand why Paypal keeps their service as secure as possible.

If you see that someone confirmed a contribution towards your WishList that you didn’t actually receive, you can edit that confirmation. Or, you can contact the donor if they provided their email address with the contribution.
