Unless I'm mistaken not for Paypal Gift, but Paypal normal is covered but costs a tiny bit, could be worth it for piece of mind of a large item.

if you pay by credit card your covered by credit card company, if debit card and pay via paypal gift your not covered for anything, standard paypal i think your covered but they will get a charge if you use that to pay. Hope that helps

as above, only if it's not paypal gift

If you buy now you are covered on a "best effort basis" for INR only. If you buy from June 1st you are covered fully for INR/SNAD. Using normal pp.

I have used paypal quite a lot for direct payments and on the odd occasion have had a problem paypal have fought and refunded my money.

I don't believe you would have a problem. But as others have said. Don't doa gift payment.


What price are we talking? £5, £10, £100, £1000? If you don't min me asking

if i recall the last person who had purchased a few things via ebay and then went on to purchase from same person off ebay ended in tears, althought that was apparently a big buy of alot of mobile phones, think they received an empty box or something like that, cant quite remember the details

Yeah I wouldn't bother tbh, seller gains if you purchase off ebay, you don't for the next few days anyhow.
