How do I resolve duplicate entries from Paypal?

Scenario 1: I have a credit card account and PayPal account both linked to Mint.  I use Paypal to buy a new gadget online (for security) and select the credit card as my payment option.  The transaction shows up twice on my Mint Transactions, one under the credit card account, the other on my PayPal account.

Scenario 2: My bank checking account and my PayPal account are both linked to Mint.  My HOA only accepts payments via PayPal.  I pay them $150 every month via PayPal, using PayPal Credit as the payment option.  I then pay off the PayPal Credit balance at the end of the month from my checking.  I get two transactions, one from my checking account to PayPal for $150, and the other from PayPal to the HOA for $150.

So far I've been manually marking/hiding duplicates but that's gotten to be too time consuming.  When you add your PayPal account it adds PayPal Credit as well, no way to add one without the other.  Hopefully Mint can figure out how to detect duplicates coming from PayPal, otherwise I may un-link my PayPal account.  I'll lose a little bit of budgeting data on some occasional transactions but I won't have to worry about duplicates.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
