Ripple Yogawear: Growing a borderless business the sustainable way

Aug 18 2020 | PayPal editorial staff

Adva Bruner is the founder of Ripple Yogawear, an Israel-based ecommerce startup and sustainable fashion brand for yogis around the world.
When Adva brought together her two passions, sustainable fashion and yoga, she quickly found success selling her line online. Soon, she was seeing about 1000 visitors and 20-60 orders a day. To her surprise, most came from outside her country. And, as her line grew, so did the cross-border payment complexities, like currency conversion and customer trust.
See how she navigated this growth with PayPal’s help.


Today, Adva continues to raise awareness for sustainable fashion worldwide with the support of PayPal.

Frequently asked questions.

Go to the dispute details on your Case Summary Page to see if you were charged the Dispute Fee. 
PayPal charges a Dispute Fee to manage the dispute resolution process on transactions that were completed by a buyer with a PayPal account or a buyer using PayPal Checkout as a Guest.  This Dispute Fee applies to such transactions both when the buyer files a claim directly with PayPal and when they file through a chargeback with their card issuer or a reversal with their bank.  The Dispute Fee does not apply to transactions processed through PayPal Pro or Advanced credit and debit card processing, sometimes called “unbranded” transactions.

The amount of the Dispute Fee depends on the percentage of claims filed against your total sales in the previous 3 months. 
The Standard Dispute Fee will apply unless your disputes rate is 1.5% or more and you had more than 100 sales transactions in the previous three full months. If you fall into that category, the High Volume Dispute Fee would apply for each dispute. 
The Standard Dispute Fee will be waived for Inquiries in the PayPal Resolution Center that aren’t escalated to a claim, those that are resolved amicably between the buyer and the seller, or those filed to PayPal directly as an Unauthorized transaction.

For more information about the Dispute Fee, see the PayPal User Agreement
