    i need a bit of help, someone told me he did a refound to me (roughly 24 hours ago)
    i wonder, how fast should that money apear back at my place ?
    for me this is quite a lot of money (i actually didnt request refund but thats the other story), so i am afraid that something would go wrong, my logical thinking is i should wait ? or should by all logic money already be at my paypal acc, or on my cc, or on my bank acc ?

    the reason why i am worried is becouse once someone already issued refund to me, and in that case i got money instantly

    i dont want to bug to much person who refunded me, so i ask how paypal refounds works ? are they always instant, or are they somehow dependable to be processed by some paypal worker that must review something ?

    Whereever the money came from is where it is going to go back. If It was your CC, it will be back there. If It was taken from your bank, it will be over there.

    It takes a few days for processing like any normal business that refunds you. Stop bugging out and just don't worry about it - It will show up sometime Monday/Tuesday more than likely for you.

    It will show in your email almost instantly.
    That is if he is telling the truth.

    actually if the payment was made by card ( not by paypal founds !!! ) so if the payment was made by paypal , and the seller is european , the money will go straight to your card instead of the paypal account :) , time-frame for such transaction is around 3-5 working days

    As soon as he hits refund in his account its instantaneous... I have done refunds to people, and literally after I click confirm, the money is gone from my account.

    You would get an email instantly.If he wrote an echeque you'd still be notified.They haven't refunded you,ask for a transaction number to trace.I've refunded and like billbobi it's instant,I've been refunded and got the funds instantly.
    You would get an email either way(cleared funds or echeque).
    There are no reviews for refunds,no email means no refund.It may be different for your country but HIGHLY unlikely.

    You get money on your paypal account instantly. Or he does. Whichever.
    Either way you receive an email in your inbox, as well as a notification on your paypal history informing you about refund.

    If you didn't receive neither then he did not refund you.

    I'm european and I DO NOT receive money on my credit card, even if payment was taken from there. I receive it on my paypal for the amount credited on credit card.
