It is a duplicate and that one wasn't a deal either.

Great reminder

Thanks

Hot deal, thanks OP.

Thanks!

It's not deal as it's been part of PayPal T&Cs since April 2016. Since when have terms and conditions been a "deal"?

thanks

Paypal "what a load of crap"

Paypal SUCKS. It really does. Please, never lose sight of the simple fact that despite the glossy ads, Paypal has big drawbacks for larger transactions.

If you pay for goods that cost between £100 and £30,000 on a credit card, then the credit card company has to honour all your consumer rights if the retailler goes bust or simply ignores you.

With Paypal, you often lose your right to hold a Credit Card compant jointly liable. Its a big, BIG benefit to small retaillers and that's one reason they LOVE Paypal.

Posted a return yesterday. Will activate and see if I can claim.

Not often. You will lose Section 75 rights by using your credit card to fund PayPal transactions.

PayPal offer 180 days and will refund the cost incase of an issue. They have done so with me

Also, if you pay via PayPal and use your credit card then you've got another protection from the credit card incase PayPal has failed. Again, worked this route as well

Is for purchases from business accounts only? if not it is likely to push up sale prices for auctions.....and then reduce sales so reduce Ebay profits..

very hot reminder

thx OP

I used this service last year and got paid the postage. Made sure I used special delivery and got refunded
£11. Useful to know that its still available as it was due to end 31st December. heat given ssc1

What did the credit company say? often they state the transaction has to be direct with the business's credit card account and not via a 3rd party ie. paypal in this case. I would be very wary of this; only use as a long shot if all else fails..

Wrong. Completely false information. And if you have, could you kindly prove that?

Waiting on two "refunds" and Paypal want you to jump through hoops. Will see if this actually happens or not.

I know that. That was the point I was trying to convey. It would be nice if it was...

Thanks OP

Sounds perfect for all us Hotukdealers who can't resist the bargain gadgets, but get told off by wifey for buying a load of junk we don't need / already bought the last time the deal was on, last week.

You had to opt-in to get this freebie last year. As no-one's mentioned it, I assume our rights are just extended into this year.

I just checked my account and it seems to have extended itself if you opted in last year. It's good to have just for piece of mind.

This post reminded me about the last time it was posted and that I applied. Have heard nothing since 7th December, so not much cop thus far...

​You have NO protection with your credit card company if paying through PayPal. Section 75 is void in this instance.

If you run a charge back PayPal do chase it, they will also try to charge you their charge back fee.

Thanks op. Just opted in.

I have not received a refund that I put in a request for on December 19th. Have sent emails twice with no response as of yet.

Be aware you have to active offer, show proof of original purchase and proof of return postage with return address.

I will have to give them a call no doubt to speed things up.

I got 2 return shipping costs successfully redunded with this scheme is in Dec

Very quick to do. All can be done via a mobile phone. You have to take a photo of the receipt to show you posted it back. Hardly taxing

Thanks OP, heat added

It says on the bottom of the form Until 31 December 2016

edit# Just read the terms and conditions and it says 2017, so I guess it's contradicting itself.

As a retailer, we are ok with PayPal but this stupid scheme encourages lazy buyers to 'try before they buy', if you want to do that then go do it from a bricks and mortar store. It doesn't matter how well you describe an item, some pond life will buy it on their mobile phone which is just about big enough to show them a stock photo with absolutely no concept of what you are selling or they are buying and when it turns up wrong, the one thing that might have encouraged them to keep it (paying for postage) has been removed by PayPal and their free money scheme - let's completely ignore the fact the retailer has lost their outbound postage through no fault of their own other than allowing PayPal; which is, of course, the only payment method if using eBay...

Nice rant. Apart from the fact that returns are a part of selling online, if you dont like it then don't sell online.

Thanks OP, Just going to return an item today. Saw this before but had forgotten about it.
Some very bitter people on this thread, ignore them and have heat. CHEERS.

The safest way is to use it like I do.
PayPal for purchases under £100 and credit card for over £100. That way you're covered for both purchases.
