How is a PayPal refund credited?
PayPal credits the refund according to how the original payment was made.
If you used a credit card, PayPal credits your credit card. If you used a funding source other than a credit card, your PayPal balance will receive the credit. If you used both a credit card and another source, the credit card portion goes to the credit card, and the remainder goes to your PayPal balance.
Please note, refunds to credit cards can take up to 30 days to appear on your statement.
