Whose it from,is it an ebay sale etc?
Hi,I would imagine it will offer the same , if not more protection.....as the old way for paying services used to get misused by scrupulous ebay sellers who would request money this way, as you could not claim for items not received/lost etc, as you paid for a service and not for goods.....hope this helps.

Outside of eBay, he canceled the auction for a cheaper sale.
Just check your purchase isn't listed in the exclusions below as obviously you have lost a layer of protection buying outside of Ebay :

For example you couldn't claim for an item not as described if it's a custom made item.

You may be reimbursed under PayPal Buyer Protection for a problem with a purchase only if all of the following requirements are met:

Your purchase is an eligible purchase. Purchases of most goods and services are eligible (including travel tickets, intangible items such as rights of access to digital content and other licences), except for purchases of the following :
real estate (including, without limitation, residential property);
businesses (including, without limitation, any items or services forming part of a business or corporate acquisition);
vehicles (including, without limitation, motor vehicles, motorcycles, caravans, aircraft and boats);
custom made items (unless they are claimed to be Not Received);
goods and services prohibited by the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy;
industrial machinery used in manufacturing;
items equivalent to cash (including, without limitation, gift cards);
goods and services purchased using Zong, Website Payments Pro, Virtual Terminal or Personal Transaction payments; and
any wager (whether by way of backing or laying against any outcome or otherwise) and any other opportunity to benefit from a gambling activity (if you are purchasing as a UK resident user of PayPal).

Eligibility :

You sent the payment for your purchase from your PayPal Account to the Payment Recipient’s PayPal Account:
through the Send Money tab applicable to payments for goods and/or services on the PayPal website or app, or the Payment Recipient's PayPal checkout flow (including, without limitation, the PayPal Location Based Payments Functionality, if used by the Payment Recipient); and
in one instalment only. Purchases paid for in multiple instalments – like a deposit followed by a final payment – are not eligible.
