Post Beware of Paypal
Hi

Just to warn you about using Paypal outside Ebay.
Any buyer using Paypal on other sites outside ebay are not covered.
I purchased some camera items from a site in America, when they arrived the box was damaged and the item inside was not what i ordered.
I complained to the company about this and was told i need to pay the shipping back to America. Which the was asking $115 the item only come to $139. I put in a dispute with Paypal and the say that because i never purchased this item from ebay i'm not covered for damaged or items not as discribed.
So be warned if your buying outside ebay, just use a normal credit card as your covered by them.
Has anybody else had problems like this with Paypal.

If you had funded the Paypal payment through a credit card you could have just got them (credit card company) to do a chargeback against Paypal.
Then it becomes Paypal's problem!

This is why Paypal do not encourage you to pay using a credit card... :roll:

I don't blame you.
Paypal are just out to get your money, the same as Ebay, their parent company.
They only pretend to care about a "Safe buying experience". :evil:
