How do I view the status of my refund?

Here's how to view the status of your refund:

  1. Go to your Activity.
  2. Click on the transaction you want to see the refund's status.

Refunds will remain pending until the seller's funds have cleared their bank.

Refunds made less than 180 days after payment will refund to your credit or debit card if it was the original source of payment. Refunds may take 30 days to appear on your next card statement.

Refunds made more than 180 days after the original payment are considered new payments and will post to your PayPal balance, minus regular fees for receiving payment.
