* PayPal Buyer Protection

All in one place!

All your money is held more securely in one place. We help protect buyers, sellers, businesses and payment methods of any flavour.

Buyer protection:

If an eligible item that you’ve bought online doesn’t arrive, or doesn’t match the seller’s description, the PayPal Buyer Protection will reimburse you for the full amount of the item plus postage and packaging costs. Buyer Protection covers eligible online purchases on eBay or on any other website, when you use PayPal.

Below are some of the key features of the policy. For more information, see our User Agreement.


You bought a book but got a DVD, you bought a new item but got something that was used, you purchased 3 items but only got 2, the item was damaged in transit, the item is missing major parts (that the seller didn’t disclose), or you purchased an authentic brand but got a knock-off instead. Tell it PayPal.


If the seller has accurately described an item, but you’re just not happy with it, if you fail to open a dispute within 180 days of purchase, or if your account is not in good standing, you are mostly likely not covered.

Items not covert:

Items like real estate, motorised vehicles (of any kind), custom-made items, industrial machinery (for manufacturing), prepaid cards, or items that violate our policies, anything you buy in person, or money transfers to friends or family.

Account Protection:

You’re not liable for unauthorised purchases made from your account.


If an order doesn’t arrive or match the description, Paypal will reimburse the full cost of eligible purchases and paid delivery costs.
