    I was selling game keys for steam on Ebay and just had an incident where a customer payed for the key, then after I sent the key, they claimed they never authorized the purchase and got their money back through paypal. I didn't get payed and I already sent the key. Is there any way to sell these things without getting scammed?

    I certainly learned my lesson :p

    If you use PayPal, it's pretty much impossible to not get scammed sometimes from cheap customers.

    Now I'm not saying it's a good website, they do sell stolen keys, but g2a is probably more secure then eBay. Or something like g2a.

    Subbed. Not just for gaming key's but this can be applied for many other things as well for trying to sell something online.

    Also, most of the time you can mail a paper with the code on it and that's good enough. But I'm curious of other methods, if any.

    Get paid with Bitcoin. There is no dispute or chargeback whatsoever. Of course limited amount of people use it but the ones you sell to will never do such thing because they can't...

    Thats the problem with selling digital goods on paypal unfortunately. One solution was mentioned in this thread already but it's not the most elegant solution..
