Buyer Protection

What Is PayPal Buyer Protection Program?

PayPal Purchase Protection covers you if you have a problem that cannot be resolved. When you file a dispute, PayPal helps you get your money back.

PayPal Protection covers eligible transactions for the full purchase price.

To qualify for PayPal Purchase Protection:

  1. Use PayPal to pay for your item.
  2. Pay for the item in one payment. Items purchased with multiple or partial payments aren’t eligible.
  3. Open a dispute in PayPal’s Resolution Center within 180 days of your purchase to let us know there’s a problem with the transaction.
  4. Escalate the dispute to a claim within 20 days of the date you opened the dispute. When you file a claim, you’re asking PayPal to decide whether you should get a refund.
  5. Keep your PayPal account in good standing.

How does PayPal protect you?

If an eligible item that you've bought online doesn't arrive or doesn't match the product description, PayPal’s Buyer Protection will reimburse you for the full amount of the item plus any packaging costs. Buyer Protection covers eligible online purchases when you use PayPal.

How do you get your money back from PayPal?

If something does go wrong with your eligible purchase, simply file a dispute within 180 days. To submit a dispute, log in to your PayPal account and find the transaction in question in your Activity.

Note: Paypal Protection is not available in every country, so please check to make sure your purchase qualifies.

What if You Are Outside of the PayPal buyer Protection Policy?

If your order is outside of the PayPal’s buyer protection policy, you may still be eligible to file a dispute and possibly get a refund via your credit card company or bank that you used to pay for the transaction.

In situations where you want to submit a chargeback or stop-payment on an order please contact your credit card company or bank directly to find out if you are eligible.

Of course, if there are extreme situations that have prevented you from submitting a request for assistance within the available protection timeframe, our customer support team will do everything in their power to ensure that this is a positive shopping experience.

What if I Paid with A Credit or Debit Card?

If you paid with a Credit Card or Debit Card, you are protected still. In the event that an item is damaged, defective, lost or late, we will ensure that you receive either a full refund or a replacement item.
