    i recently got a refund on a faulty laptop.. got the confimation email 2 days ago, but i have no money in my paypal balance? I hadnt confirmed my email address when it got put through though, would this matter? Or does anyone know if there is a wait involved for it to go in? Or if it goes straight back onto the bank card i used?!

    Much appreciated if anyone could help cos just ordered another 1210 and kind of need to give my mum the money for laptop lol..

    normally it should just go straight in and then when u transfer to your account it takes 4-5 days....get hold of paypal maybe?

    any refund balance would show up in your paypal account. it doesn't go back to your normal account. i would contact the person who gave you the refund and kick off

    It also says i need to verify my paypal account by adding a bank account (cant do this just right now).. would this be a problem?

    that's something you should have done when you started really. but it shouldn't affect getting a refund.

    Phone the hotline number on your credit card and see if you have had a credit on your account. Next.

    no fear man. thing is, you need an account to pay thru paypal but not to recieve money thru paypal, you just need an account to take money out of paypal. so you should find the refund in there almost instantaneoulsy. they've either not made the transaction yet or credited the worng account. get in touch with them.

    talking now..

    'a transfer in the amount of £xxx.xx to credit card was completed on December 11th'

    Why did it say to 'credit card' surely it should be to paypal balance?

    Sorry im a noob at this shit lol

    that just sounds wrong. any refund would go to your paypal account, anything else is funny business

    Mate, if you paid by credit card and then that transaction got cancelled, the money goes to your credit card. Like I said, check your card. Its better for you to have your money on your card then on paypal.
