Digital delivery and Paypal protection on eBay

Would I be right in thinking there is no Paypal protection against dodgy buyers when sending an item by email?

Is there nothing I can do to protect myself or do I just have to risk it?

No digital content is not covered and is not technically allowed to be sold anyway, so send it.

Thought so - would sending it via email straight away and then sending it via post be OK? So the buyer gets it straight away but I still have a proof of postage to fall back on if they try and scam me..

only if you send recorded delivery...normal 1st/2nd class does not have tracking:thumbsup:

Right, will send recorded in that case. Bit of a pain but it's better than getting shafted!

couldn't they just use whatever you email them but refuse delivery of the item which would turn up a few days later claiming it was damaged or whatever.

Yup.

I guess it's a possibility but I wasn't planning on telling them about posting it so it'd just turn up and they'd sign for it thinking "wonder what this is...?"

Might just risk it. Have never been scammed and haven't got my money back in 6 years of using eBay. Threats of police/courts always scares them into paying up even though its an empty threat..
