How PayPal Seller Protection works
1. If a buyer files a claim, or in case of a chargeback or a payment reversal, we may place a temporary hold on the funds.
2. We’ll ask you to provide information including proof of shipment or proof of delivery within the time frame communicated, (usually 7-10 days).
3. You’ll be able to access the money as soon as we have ascertained that your transaction is eligible.
What can our Seller Protection cover?
- Tangible goods (clothes, toys, electronics, car parts etc.)
- Services (yoga classes, website design etc.)
- Tickets (concerts, shows, sport events etc.)
- Travel (trip reservations, flight or hotel booking etc.)
What can’t be covered by PayPal Seller Protection?
- Items that you deliver (or are picked up) in person
- Digital goods (music, computer game downloads and licenses for digital content).
- Claims or chargebacks arising from items being significantly different to how you described them.
