Pay later refunds

Hi, i paid for an order using the pay later option and am planning on returning some of the items. I just want to know what happens to refunds on pay later purchases. Do they need to be paid before it will be refunded?

The seller has already been paid as no seller would send items first without being paid.

PAD is basically a 14 day interest free loan (or however long they give you in your country) between you and paypal.

If the refund is issued BEFORE the funds have left your bank account then they may not leave your bank account.

HOWEVER its more likely that the refund will be made AFTER the funds have left your bank account and so you would be credited the refund once paypal have received the initial payment.
