    Chargeback Fees

    For transactions that are not processed either through a buyer’s PayPal account or through a guest checkout, we assess a settlement fee to sellers for credit and debit card transaction chargebacks (a chargeback may occur when a buyer rejects or reverses a charge on his or her card through the card issuer).

    The chargeback fee is based on the currency received as follows:
