Dispute resolution on PayPal purchases.

When you pay with PayPal, you gain access to a forum for dispute resolution called the Resolution Centre. Through it, you can issue a dispute or claim against:
  • A physical item that you paid for but never received.

  • A physical item you purchased on eBay that is significantly different from what was described in the listing.
Dispute Resolution specialists gather information about your transaction and help you resolve the issue. Throughout the process, you’ll be advised of your claim’s status via email and on your Account Overview page.

For specific terms and conditions, please review the PayPal Buyer Protection Policy and Buyer Complaint Policy in our User Agreement.
