Purchases are set up to be done instantly, so your item can be shipped the same day. Move an amount of money from your bank to paypal and it will take a few days. Manual transactions, like refunds, are handled manually. If purchases were, you would really gripe when it took days to ship while waiting for paypal to get the money from your bank. I always move an amount to paypal before making a purchase. That way, money is in my paypal account before I make the purchase.
