If a refund I send is accepted, are the fees from the original transaction credited to my PayPal 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.
  • When you issue a partial refund, we credit a percentage of the variable transaction fee, based on the amount of the refund.

To learn more about variable and fixed transaction fees, click Fees at the bottom of any PayPal page.
