If the refund I issue is accepted, are the fees from the original transaction credited to my account?

You receive credit for your original transaction fees based on the kind of refund you issue.

  • When you issue a full refund using the Issue Refund link on the Transaction Details page, we credit your full variable transaction fee (1.9% to 2.9% of the transaction amount).
  • When you issue a partial refund, we credit a percentage of the variable transaction fee, based on the amount of the refund.

Fixed fees - $0.30 USD per transaction - are not refundable. To learn more about variable and fixed transaction fees, click Fees at the bottom of any PayPal page.
