eBay Returns Services Billing Agreement UK

Last Update: Aug 19, 2013


Parties to This Agreement

This eBay Billing Agreement ("Agreement") is between PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. & Cie, S.C.A., (“PayPal”) eBay, Inc. and/or its subsidiary companies (collectively, “eBay”) and you. PayPal is only a party to this Agreement for the sole purpose of the sections “Your Instruction to PayPal” and “Your Cancellation Rights” below. 


Authorisation to Charge Your PayPal Account for Amounts Owed to eBay

By agreeing to these terms, you authorise eBay to charge your PayPal account for the amounts you owe eBay which you incur when returning an item via eBay.co.uk or any other eBay site, including without limitation:

  1. return postage costs and postage insurance charges (if not paid by the seller)
  2. the replacement item's cost if you don’t return the purchased item or the exchanged item's difference in cost, plus applicable postage
  3. using any other programme or service offered to you by eBay or a third party

(such amounts being “Authorised Amounts” and each such category of liability listed above being a “Liability Category” ) eBay may charge your PayPal account on a one-time, sporadic, or recurring basis.


Your Instruction to PayPal

You authorise and instruct PayPal to pay eBay all and any Authorised Amount debits as presented by eBay to PayPal. By providing such authorisation and instruction, you acknowledge and agree that in all circumstances you reasonably expect that:

  1. an Authorised Amount may arise and accrue from all or any of your activities on eBay; and payments made under this Agreement are variable and may be made on various dates.
  2. payments made under this Agreement are variable and may be made on various dates.

You agree that PayPal is not obliged to verify or confirm the amount that eBay presents to PayPal for the purpose of processing payment of any Authorised Amount.


Payment Method on File

PayPal will become your payment method on file with eBay for automatic payments of any Authorised Amount. If you previously had another payment method on file for automatic payments, that method will be replaced by PayPal. You can change your payment method within My eBay (you will find the My eBay icon on the top right section of each eBay page).



Your Cancellation Rights: You can review or cancel this Agreement by following the relevant instructions in the “Cancelling Recurring Payments" section of the PayPal User Agreement (or the instructions to review or cancel recurring payments as otherwise set out in the PayPal User Agreement from time to time). A cancellation received by us before close of business on a business day will take effect on the next business day; if it is received after close of business on a business day, it will take effect on the business day after the next business day.

Cancellation by eBay: This Agreement may be cancelled by eBay at any time. Cancellation by eBay will take effect from the time that PayPal receives eBay’s instruction to cancel the Agreement.

Your continuing obligation: If this Agreement is cancelled for any reason, or if the payment of amounts owed through PayPal cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay eBay for all unpaid amounts and eBay reserves the right to seek reimbursement through other means.



You agree that eBay may amend this Agreement, including adding types of Liability Category, by providing you with 30 days’ advance notice via the eBay Message Centre or by email (except that eBay may not amend the clauses “Your Instruction to PayPal” and “Your Cancellation Rights” in this way).

This Agreement is governed by English law. A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce or to enjoy the benefit of any term of this Agreement.

By clicking Agree and continue, you agree to the terms and conditions, and you will be returned to eBay.
