    Hello BHW community, Im planning on selling a few ebooks on DP in order to make a couple hundred dollars(bill money lol), don't need help selling, but I wanted to know if anyone has figured out a way to stop the DP community from buying a product and immediately doing a chargeback.

    I currently prefer to only use free solutions and know that paypal would be best in this department(sadly), but I also know that paypal is notorious for limiting your account for reasons beyond the sellers control because some jerk wants a freebie.

    I'm thinking that instead of doing sells of my ebook, maybe I should try going the donation route?

    Can they do chargebacks for that as well? Any help is greatly appreciated.:drinking2

    Chargebacks are different from refunds. Chargebacks go to the bank of the card holder. Usually, you've done something bad to get them, and there's nothing you can do about it.

    I assume you are asking about refunds. Here is what I do to stop refunds. Paypal is only concerned with whether or not the buyer received the download. So, I put up a special download page on my site, or a link to my download in the Paypal dispute. I state that I did deliver, but just in case they didn't get it, here is the link to the download. I've never had Paypal issue a refund to the buyer when I did that.

    Hmm, sounds interesting... So you're saying if I make a quick site to sell my product on DP using paypal, and i drive the customers there, the chance of a refund will decrease? In my ebook I am providing valuable content of course and letting buyers get an overview of exactly what they are buying so it truly would only be a jerk trying to scam me out of $7...

    But I will give that a try and hope that works, also I heard if you tell each buyer to provide a note stating that the purchase is non refundable it could also help? Just putting that out there and maybe i could combine some things to make it fail-safe.

    Thanks given :D

    Unfortunately, refunds are part of the selling game.
    Even if you say no refunds on your sales page,
    people can still get them.

    True spit, well i guess what im really trying to do is minimize the refunds. Heck, id be happy selling only $200 worth, invest $40 into that to post on warrior forum, and improve on the package and make a killing there because my ultimate goal is only $700 total hehe

    Edit: before anyone might possibly say im thinking small, thats only my goal, best believe any over that im going to invest in some tools like AMR and scrapebox for starters, heck probably even Jr. Vip here =)
