YOU COULD GET MERCHANDISE THAT IS "NOT AS DESCRIBED" AND NOT BE BACKED BY THE PAYPAL BUYER PROTECTION POLICY EVEN IF YOU PAY BY PAYPAL.

 

IF YOU BUY ITEMS OFF OF EBAY TO SELL ON EBAY, AND PAY WITH PAYPAL, BEWARE!!

ALL ALONG I ASSUMED THAT PAYPAL PROTECTS THE BUYER REGARDLESS OF WHERE IT IS PURCHASED IF THERE IS A MISREPRESENTATION OF THE ITEM.

 AS I FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY, THIS IS GENERALLY ONLY TRUE IF THE ITEM IS PURCHASED ON EBAY.

IF YOU PURCHASE "OFF E-BAY" AND PAY WITH PAYPAL AND THE GOODS COME IN "NOT AS DESCRIBED" YOU ARE "OUT OF LUCK".

PAYPAL'S EXPLANATION IS THAT SINCE THEY ARE ASSOCIATED WITH EBAY THROUGH OWNERSHIP, E-BAY IS THE ONLY SITE WHERE "NOT AS DESCRIBED" CLAIMS ARE COVERED. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS!!

ONE OF THE WAYS TO REMEDY THIS SITUATION AND GET MORE BUYER PROTECTION IS TO SIGN UP FOR THE PAYPAL PLUS CREDIT CARD.

WHEN YOU BUY YOUR NEXT MERCHANDISE "OFF E-BAY" AND PAY WITH PAYPAL, YOU WILL HAVE A CHOICE AT CHECKOUT TO SWITCH TO THE PAYPAL PLUS CREDIT CARD.

SINCE THE PAYPAL PLUS IS A CREDIT CARD, IT GIVES YOU AN ADDED DEGREE OF PROTECTION SINCE THE LAWS GOVERNING CREDIT CARDS FAVOR THE BUYER.

IF YOU PAID WITH THE "PAYPAL PLUS" OPTION, A CLAIM WILL PLACE THE TRANSACTION IN ABEYANCE FOR REVIEW. THE SELLERS FUNDS WILL BE FROZEN. YOU ARE LIKELY TO WIN IF YOU RETURN THE GOODS TO THE SELLER AND HAVE PROOF BY WAY OF CONFIRMATION PROOF OF RECEIPT.

I hope this was helpful to you if like me you buy merchandise from several sources to re-sell on eBay. If so, please indicate so by answering YES that it was helpful. Thanks, LOASS.
