If I were to arrange with an ebay seller to buy one of their items outside of ebay so they didn't have to pay the final value fee, what protection would I get if buying with paypal?

I have approached a seller about this (not the other way around), so both I and him can save a few quid (i pay 10% less and he still makes the same).
I was thinking it'd probably be ok if i paid through paypal with a mastercard, for maximum protection?
Any thoughts?

:o

None? Not even the ability to file a dispute if not received?

It'd be normal paypal, not gift btw

Edit: just been reading the Paypal buyer protection policy which states i'd only be able to get the money back if it was in their account. No good if they empty it out regularly..
Hmmm. what to do..

Just been looking at the same thing. It'd be a bit of a risk for sure (same as doing business here I guess) as Paypal would only refund if the seller had the money in their account.

Now looking into how chargebacks work and if I cuold do one if the item never turned up...

P.s. rep for all so far, thanks everyone :thumbsup:

paypal said it themselves on watchdog before christmas that consumers have no protection outside of ebay using thier paypal accounts.
if you are buying something on ebay always use paypal. even if you try and do a chargeback if the item didnt arrive or was faulty there is still the possiblilty you will lose your money


This isn't looking like such a good idea now!

Thanks for your info, will leave rep shortly :)
