    Hey,

    Going over Paypal User agreement - "Protection for Sellers" part.
    One of the requirement is

    • Your primary residence, as listed in your Account, must be in the United States.

    I've got a European account though. If I changed my address to a US address, would that work? I'm guessing not? :D

    Thanks :)

    Im not sure this would work, it could probably even screw you over if not done right. I wouldnt take the chance. I do know paypal offers this if you add signature confirmation in your ordersif the price is a certain amount, but to be honest I don't think even that will protect you. Buyers can say anything to get away with these things.

    You want some serious PayPal seller protection? Combine it with 2CO.

    I lost count how many times I've been screwed over with cheap hosting scams that disappear after 45 days

    SELLER PROTECTION!!! LMAO LMAO LMAO!!!

    If you believe for 1 sec PP has a seller protection that does anything I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

    I get screwed by PP 2 to 5 times a month. Tracking number shows delivery and some jerk with 11 feedback states he never got it.

    I just figure this loss into my numbers but ... don't worry about not qualifying for PP seller protection, and no need to worry about being attacked by Unicorns or Elves either.

    Too funny.

    That's an ebay issue.

    In the case with PayPal and 2CO, you can file complaints against the seller, but you, the buyer, get tossed around. Unless you escalate the issue severely, which usually isn't worth the resources, and the scammers know this, you can't file a complaint on PayPal against 2CO, and 2CO tells you to deal directly with the company you purchased from. It's a scammers fantasy in 2013.

    It is not a secret that PayPal offers little protection to the seller against buyer fraud and over protection in the buyers case.
    Only time you can expect seller protection is with intangible items.
