How to Refund a Paypal Payment

  • Log in to your PayPal account.
  • Find and click the payment.
  • Scroll down to refund the payment. You can select a full refund or a partial amount.

You'll receive a refund of your PayPal fees based on the type and amount of the refund you issue.

If the buyer used a credit card without logging in to a PayPal account (in other words, if they used PayPal Guest Checkout), the refund will go back to their credit or debit card. It can take up to 30 days for the refund to show up on their card statement.
