Your transactions can be protected

Unauthorized transaction

Item not received

A buyer pays for an item, claims they never received it and then files for a refund whether it’s physical objects or services? If your transaction is eligible, our Seller Protection can help you get the full amount of the payment.

How PayPal Seller Protection works

1. If a buyer files a claim, or in case of a chargeback or a payment reversal, we may place a temporary hold on the funds.

2. We’ll ask you to provide information including proof of shipment or proof of delivery within the time frame communicated, (usually 7-10 days).

3. You’ll be able to access the money as soon as we have ascertained that your transaction is eligible.

  • Tangible goods (clothes, toys, electronics, car parts etc.)
  • Services (yoga classes, website design etc.)
