I had a friend try to gift my account but the paypal page was in swedish, he didn't notice the language button. So he said he opened a new page and filled it out to Notch's email, that mojang.com one. I don't know how paypal works or else I would have bought the game myself, but I think my friend messed it up and didn't specify that my Riyuzakisan account was to be upgraded. So from my view, this guy just wasted 13 USD for nothing. That's my problem. My question is, can this guy get a refund?
He [my friend] said "oh it will work out fine it will probably take a day", which leads to my second question; when a minecraft account is upgraded, does it happen automatically or does it take a day or two? :? any ideas?
Also, depending on the payment method it can take a different amount of time, if it was Direct Debit, Bank Transfer or from a PayPal account "wallet" then it should be immediate, with of course the exception of when the site decides it wants to take it's sweet time to update.
