If a seller issues a refund, the refund transaction should appear in your Paypal account almost immediately. And the money will eventually go back to your cc.
If you click on the details link for this transaction, Paypal will let you know if there will be any delay with the money posting back to your card.
For example: seller funded the refund with their bank account. It will take 3-5 business days for the transfer from their bank account to be completed. Then an additional few days for the money to make it back to your cc.
