Paypal protection for not receiving nappies/nappy scammer?!?

Postby jclmellor » Fri Jun 24, 2011 11:54 am

hi,
just out of interest (it hasn't happened to me!) but does anyone know if paypal will refund the money paid if we happen to buy from a scammer on this website? sometimes it's scary buying from someone with no ratings, and who is offering quite a low price... ebay offers protection but i'm not sure if this website does?
many thanks
jody :hug:

Yep, as PP said, as long as you pay via paypal, you're covered.

All the information you need about buying and selling in the classifieds is here. It is not ebay that offers you the buyer protection it is Paypal, therefore you will get some buyer protection if you use it as a method of payment on any website. You will find Paypal's buyer protection policy for non-ebay purchases on their website. It does vary slightly I think from their ebay policy though.

Glad you feel more at ease :D - you are right asking the questions though - we should all always be on the look out and practice buyer beware when buying online regardless of what site you do so from.

We have a very strict no requests for gifted PayPal policy on this site. PayPal protect your transactions on this site and whilst they are usually very good at sorting out refunds, they will never do it for a donation, otherwise known as "Gifted PayPal, as it is not a method to pay for goods. We also have a method of restricting classifieds access until any problems are sorted out, which is usually enough for the problem to be resolved. So as Kirsty said, do make sure you contact a mod with details of any problem so that we can deal with issues as quickly as possible.

Do check before you pay using the Paypal phone app, I know there were problems with this as it defaulted to "gifted" but not sure if this has been sorted out now.
