hi, I got refunded $67 for a pair of jeans I got that I sent back to the seller, today I got notif under recent activity saying that $67 was added to my account but there was no money added to my paypal balance, therefore I cannot use the money. how come??
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). https://www.paypal.com/ca/smarthelp/article/FAQ1212
