The person to whome you made the payment is going to have to reject it so that it gets returned to your account.

Sounds like Catch 22, if he can't claim it how can he reject it?

Doe's PayPal have the remedy in their trading conditions!.

If not,then I would email them for an answer.

One would hope that if goes unclaimed for long enough paypal will automatically return it. After all, it is not their money.

How long 'long enough' would be is anyones guess.

At least it is only £2, not £2000.

but i do think there is somthing in their terms that allows *you* to (or at least request that) the transaction be reversed. But i dont know how.

Take a look at this from Paypal click here= I think getting your recipient to log into his Paypal account and reject the payment may be the only way.

I have to agree with Mr Mistoffelees. I would say you should contact them click here and explain your situation.
