    Last week I made a purchase on ebay and paid with my PayPal account. My PayPal account is linked up to my credit card. Well I ended up returning the item and received an email from PayPal today telling me that my purchase was refunded to my account.

    Well tonight I login and there is no money in my PayPal account ( I admit I am a PayPal noob). My CC is still showing the charge.

    My question is where is my money (the refund) and how do I get it back?

    First, make sure the email really came from paypal. Did they use your real name? If it did, just chill for a couple days and the money will show soon.

    Good. Just give it a few days and you should have your $$$ back.

    Returns can sometimes take a few days to show up. Especially if on the weekend. Start worrying if it's not there by Wednesday.

    If it doesn't show up. Then contact paypal. If that doesn't work. Then contact your credit card.

    That is what I had to do when a item never made to my door. Still waiting on the outcome of that one.

    A refund of a credit card payment through paypal typically posts directly back to your credit card. Do not expect to see the money in your paypal account.
