    Hello,

    Is there any method of winning a paypal refund request as a buyer for a website sale? Has anyone here submitted one and won?

    Thanks

    If it's virtual items, you usually never win. If it's a physical package with a tracking no that never got delivered, you will win. What are you trying to get a refund on?

    Buying a whole website, normally I am very good at due diligence, however I rushed this one through. Instead of using Escrow I used paypal, it was my mistake really. I have had both buyers successfully charge back products I have been selling and those that have lost, there must be a trick for paypal to decide which one to side with.

    If I do not mention it to be virtual, would this help?


    EDIT: Extra info - I have a paypal business account and have thousands of transactions over the last 5 years.

    EDIT2: If you also say it was never received as the product was different to what you expected, does that also work?

    Sadly, you probably wont get refunded for this, paypal is very strong regarding virtual items. Even if you got a business account (i have as well, over 2000 transactions) they probably wont do it.

    You could try to use the refund option that you didn't make the payment, that someone else did. Don't say that your kid or something did it because that wont work out either.

    Good luck, please update me how it goes. :)

    I think perhaps saying it was not received might work. Technically the item advertised was never received... I have lost a dispute this was before as I could not provide tracking information, at that point I believe Paypal implement the sellers protection which covers goods posted with a tracking ID, this was never done.

    Anyone have any experience of this?
