PayPal allows you to refund money for any type of payment, whether it's from a sale or a gift. If you've received a gift payment, you have up to 60 days to refund the money through PayPal. After that time, you will have to send a regular payment, rather than refunding the original one. Refunding gifts is easily accomplished through the transaction details screen.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log in to your PayPal account.

  2. 2

    Click "History" in the top menu bar.

  3. 3

    Click the gift payment from the history list.

  4. 4

    Click "Issue a refund" in the transaction details page.

  5. 5

    Enter the amount that you want to refund into the "Refund amount" field. Click "Continue."

  6. 6

    Verify the refund details and click "Issue Refund" to refund the selected amount.
