How does it work?





items not covered

Items Not Covered

Protection you can count on

PayPal’s Buyer Protection programme entitles you to reimbursement for the full purchase price of the item plus the original shipping costs you paid, if any when you don’t receive your item from a seller, or when you receive an item, but the item isn’t what you ordered.

Buyer Protection is available on eligible purchases only. Time limits and other terms apply. See the Buyer Protection section of the User Agreement for more information.

Account Protection

You're not liable for unauthorised purchases made from your account.
