    PayPal - Unconfirmed Address - High Value Item

    Just hold a high value item and recieved payment of £700 via PayPal.

    From what I remember, if the address is confirmed on PayPal, I would be covered for claims if I had proof it was recieved and signed for.

    Just got a few concerns as the Seller Protection states Eligable but not sure if it would cover the whole amount (previous knowledge alerts me of a figure of £150)

    I fear that the buyer may try put in an unauthorised claim so just wondering would PayPal cover all the amount?

    Would send it via Royal Mail - Special Delivery.

    Thanks.

    who in their right mind accepts paypal for £700



    The OP wants constructive advice, not your usual subjective drivel.

    EDIT - In response to the OP's question, if the buyer is from eBay what is their feedback like, how many, etc. If you're in doubt email eBay or PayPal.

    The feedback aint brilliant but I have posted items via Special Delivery and all have arrived it's destination with a signature, I'll upgrade the componsation (not the part I'm worried about)

    Just wondering if PayPal's seller protection is a limited amount or for the full amount if I got a claim on the transaction as "Unauthored Payment"?

    I had a case a few years ago where the protection was limited,to £150 so I'm wondering if this has changed or it's hidden in PayPal's T&C.

    Thanks.

    PayPal usually side with the buyer, so if you're in ANY doubt you should cancel the transaction.

    Someone who sells something for £700 on eBay springs to mind.
    I've taken over £1k several times without any problems... special delivery, photograph the item including any identifying features before sending.

Log in to PayPal, go to your Account History and click on the 'Details' link next to the transaction.For transactions with a value of £150 or more, you need to provide proof of signature from the recipient if the buyer claims that the item did not arrive.



    'Eligable' on PayPal but just wondering if the buyer claimed through their credit card or bank account that someone else used their account, would PayPal cover the full lot as from what I can remember from my last case, it was only £150 but the item only sold for £80.
