I had to return something to a store today and because I used my visa debit card to originally purchase it, they requested the refund go back onto the card.
This was a few hours ago but there is no record of the money being returned into my account yet (I logged onto my internet banking to check).
Is there normally a delay with refunds to debit cards? Purchases always show up straight away, even if they don't come out of the account immediately they still show up in pending purchases. It always reflects the actual account balance.
I will call the store to enquire if necessary, but I thought someone here might know the answer?
