Chargeback Fees

To cover the cost of processing chargebacks, 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).

This fee does not apply if the transaction is covered by the PayPal Seller Protection Policy.

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