View Full Version : paypal query

Never had this happen so not sure how paypal works.
I ordered something and paid by paypal which took the amount
off my credit card ( paypal balance not enough to cover it). I have had to return the item and have been refunded.

So does that refund stay in paypal or does it go back onto my card?

From my experience back to however you paid it.
Had a refund myself yesterday - paid part balance and part credit card and it went back the same way it was taken.

Yes, I agree. Sometimes I have found they do put a "hold" on the refund for a few days before the money is made available to you again - I presume this is a security measure.

Thank you, I was not sure whether I had to transfer money from paypal into the bank to pay the credit card. It did seem long winded.

The refunded is allocated to the original source of the payment, credit card, paypal balance, bank account etc.
