    Yes if you can prove you didn't receive it... If you're lucky like me you'll be refunded twice. I think that was karma though given the seller was a complete dick and I've had to wait well over a month :)

    Yes, paypal will pay. As soon as you open a case they'll withhold the transaction. I think with if you pay with paypal to shop from ebay you are insured upto $20k.
    Anyway, the point is I got refunded very recently after the seller didn't send me the item. They had given the seller to respond within 10 days and when the seller didn't respond they refunded my money.

    Depending on the situation. But for most physical goods, you are likely to get your money back if the seller does not send anything.

    Number 1 rule: You can NEVER 100% prove to PayPal that an item was sent. This includes tracking numbers and delivery confirmation.

    Will you get your money back if they don't send something? Depends on how smart the seller is with PayPals system, if they have been using PayPal for years, you might not. If they haven't and don't know how to work the system, I would put money on the fact that you will get your money back.
