Paypal ending buyer protection
« on: June 27, 2020, 03:15:26 AM »
This is been going around in the reseller's community. As of July 31st, paypal is ending buyer protection for all except purchases from stores and new items. So basically, everyone is crap out of luck and it will be a free for all. Thoughts?

Items intended for resale...what? Is this about people who flip? How can they distinguish that from other transactions?
Wait, I talked with my GF and we brainblasted and took a bit more of a look into what counts:

I think they are targeting the drop shippers.  You know, the ones who have a storefront on Ebay or Amazon, and then your product comes from China and not from the company you were expecting.

So.
The actual change is that under the Ineligible items and transactions under PayPal Buyer Protection section that they have added Items intended for resale, including single item transactions or transaction that include multiple items.


And that "resale" items have not been defined. I don't see the wording about "except purchases from stores and new items."

Here is a quote from on a paypal forum, by a paypal representative
Quote
The change you mentioned refers to anyone who makes purchases for the express purpose of re-selling the items. PayPal Purchase Protection is intended for end-use consumers; therefore, purchases made for the purposes of filling retail inventory or any purchases made with the intent of reselling the item(s) will be excluded from PayPal Purchase Protection.

 

This exclusion does not apply to items intended to be given as a gift (e.g., if you purchase an item with the intent of giving it as a gift you are still considered an end-use consumer). In general, this exclusion does not apply to the sale of a used item after end-use (e.g., I upgraded my phone to an iPhone 11 and now want to sell my old iPhone 8).

So the way I read that, if you are buying something for yourself, it's fine. You are the end user and you are 100% covered.

Maybe if you are buying a lot of ponies for resale, it's not fine.. but I think it's really targeting people who are buying wholesale stuff to resell.

Thats the problem. It's not really explained what exactly will and wont be covered. Ebay is moving to its own payment system, mercari and posh have their own, so im not too worried. The problem I see, it through facebook and private sales. I guess we will have to wait and see.

It was defined by the paypal associate.

If you are an end user, then you have buyer protection. If you are purely flipping-- or purchased the item to immediately resell, then you don't. But quite frankly when it comes to single items, then it's easy to claim you are an end user and it's not a big deal.
