Hi Skratch,

 

Welcome to the community! :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks for letting us know it's been resolved.  Bank funded payments do end up getting refunded to the PayPal balance as the transfer going back to the bank needs to be authorized as a separate transfer.

 

You'll be able to send the funds back now with the "Withdraw" option located in the white bar just below the My Account tab.

 

Thanks for using PayPal!

 

- Frank

I had a similar issue, rec'd  a refund that was placed on hold event though the money was already out of my account and instead of that money going right back in to my account it was placed in my paypal account...just withdrew it today so I'm hoping it will be back in my account in time!
