For any of such problems, the user shall contact PayPal directly.

In the latter case, the Owner will refund the price without undue delay and, anyway, within a maximum of 15 working days from the date of collection. Such amount will be credited on the same means of payment used by the User for purchase or on the different means agreed between the User and the Owner. Any delays in crediting the amount may depend on the bank, the type of credit card or the means of payment used.
