Why is my refund pending?

If your refund status is pending, it means the transaction was refunded before it cleared your bank, or the seller issued the refund using money from their bank which has not cleared yet. This process takes 3-5 working days to complete. Once the process is completed, the refund will be credited to your PayPal balance and then automatically transerred to your bank account. If you initially paid for the transaction with your credit or debit card, the refund will be credited to that card within 30 days.
