I'd like to switch the bank account that my paypal acct is linked to. I haven't done this in ages. How long can it take and what will happen to payments I receive in the interim? TIA

isn't it quick?
you enter the account info and they send a small amount to your account, you check your account and then paypal will ask for the amount to confirm its your account
and if you receive any payments, leave them in your paypal balance until your new account is confirmed, so you can transfer it into your new account
