Paypal refund using credit card

Hi! Im getting a refund from a seller and I used my credit card for the purchase. The refund pending notification says its going to be refunded to my Paypal cash balance however? Will it not go to my credit card account when it clears?

It always says it will be refunded to your paypal account (not balance) but then its auto swept back to your bank account or card.


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).
