    11.6 Eligibility Requirements

    What are the eligibility requirements for PayPal seller protection?

    You must meet all of these requirements to be covered:

    The item purchased must be a physical, tangible good that can be posted.
    The transaction must be marked by PayPal as eligible or partially eligible for seller protection on your Account Transaction Details page.
    If it is marked eligible, protection for both Unauthorised Payments and Item Not Received will apply. If it is marked partially eligible, protection for only Item Not Received will apply.
    Items sold on eBay will be marked eligible even if the shipping address is marked unconfirmed. Generally, items sold on websites other than eBay will be marked eligible if the shipping address is marked confirmed and partially eligible (that is, eligible for Item Not Received only) if the shipping address is marked unconfirmed.
    Post the item to the shipping address on the Transaction Details page
    You may access the Transactions Details page by logging into your PayPal Account, selecting History and then selecting Details for the transaction.
    Follow the postage requirements described below.
    You must accept a single payment from one PayPal Account for the purchase.
    You must not charge a surcharge for accepting PayPal.
    Respond to PayPals requests for documentation and other information that is reasonably required by _PayPal to investigate the matter in a timely manner.
    Your primary residence, as listed in your PayPal Account, must be in the United Kingdom.

    Does this mean if I send to someone with "eligible" seller protection but to an "unconfirmed" address (someone with same surname but not the purchaser) I am protected? Thanks

    Confimred addresses aren't neccessary anymore, or so I thought.

    +1 That is terrible, Paypal doesn't protect anything. After that little incident I won't be using paypal again on there. Without going to court I don't think theres anything you can do. I would be phoning up ebay and paypal though and getting them thinking to look at your account past history of sending things and his scamming past.

    your receipt from rm would show the weight, and i think theres a sligh difference in weight from an empty box to one with a netbook in it

    Good point:thumbsup:

    paypal is fair if you set your buyer perferences and check the winning bidders history before sending, click on the # of bids link in the my ebay section then click on the users name and you can check what they have bid on, what the won etc

    i wouldn't sell high value on ebay, i sold my pc monitor and got the person to pick up instead of sending, 80% of people on ebay are trustworthy, just some ruin it for others, ebay is a last resort for me

    yeah my recipt does show the weight but still they took the money, paypal say there is nothing they can do as it is the credit card company that has done the charge back. this guy had reliable feedback. i emailed ebay they didnt even bother getting back to me. I think i will be closing my account with paypal tooo

    I think you will find seller protection if you send a bank transfer is a lot less than if you use paypal!

    Take the buyer to small claims court. Credit card companies very rarely reverse a decision. If it had seller protection you could try claiming under that.

    Apart from set up direct debits (which you would get the money back for, theres not really much anyone can do with them.
