Yup, you can pay and have your money go out of your checking account immediately, but not get your refund from PayPal for days. Kind of defeats the purpose of using PayPal, doesn't it?
Sure, your transaction is relatively secure, but don't expect a quick refund if you change your mind about a purchase. Check with your bank and see what the policy is with a debit card. It can't be any worse than PayPal.
That's pretty standard policy for any form of online payment. If you use your credit card, the same applies.
