Paypal question

I had to return some items, and the amount was refunded to my Paypal account. I'm trying to use that to purchase something else now, and Paypal just defaults to my debit card, instead of using the refund credit.

Any ideas on proceeding?

1. You have to change settings so

your "PayPal" balance is first choice of payment not your card.

2. I hate PayPal.

Do they still require you to link your PayPal account
To your bank account? It canít be safe.

6. It says

Paypal balance unavailable for this purchase.

That doesn't makes sense if the vendor accepts Paypal.

3. You can select the source of payment with each purchase

So just select your paypal account balance as the source and bob's your uncle.

7. Maybe you'll have to transfer it back to PayPal from the bank

If you mean it went to the bank you linked to PayPal?

8. Sometimes it takes a day or two for the refund to ACTUALLY hit your bank account.

Maybe that's the problem.

9. I heard back from the company who did the refund

They said since they've already refunded to the Paypal account, they can't switch it to my debit card now. Even though that is what is linked to the Paypal account.

Frustrating.

10. I have used PayPal for years and never had a problem

When money was refunded to me through them PayPal always got it back to my bank account.

I would rather use them to purchase something than to allow an unknown company to take money out of my bank account.
