Why is my refund pending?

When your refund status is pending, it means that the transaction was refunded before it cleared your bank, or that the seller issued the refund using money from their bank which hasn't cleared yet. This process takes 3-5 business days to complete. Once the process is completed, the refund will be credited to your PayPal balance and then automatically transferred to your bank account.
