Refund as a declined tranaction?

New Community Member
So i recieved a refund from someone who wrongfully charged me. However, the refund shows only on paypal and on my actual credit card it was declined as another payment. Is that normal? I do not see the refund on my card. How long does it take?

If you funded the original Paypal payment to the seller from your bank account or a card then once marked refunded/completed it will automatically go back to that bank account or card.
Normally it can take a few days up to a week to go back to a bank account and a bit longer for a card, Paypal say allow 30 days for a card (1 billing cycle) but its rarely that long.
(Can vary according to country though).
