Security for purchase outside of eBay

I’m attempting to purchase a fairly expensive watch through PayPal (not eBay). If I do, am I covered under the same policies? Meaning - are the funds on hold until I confirm I’ve received it and am happy? If so - would I ask the seller to send me an invoice or how would we complete the purchase to ensure I was covered under the policy? I don’t want to just send him the money and do something to prevent the funds being on hold until I’ve confirmed I’m happy with purchase.

Re: Security for purchase outside of eBay

As long as you send the funds as a PayPal Goods and Services payment and you don't pick the item up in person, you'll have PayPal Purchase Protection for an item not received or an item not as described.

 

Also, PayPal doesn't allow significantly not as described disputes for custom made items. I don't know if this pertains to your watch, so I wanted to let you know just in case.

 

Here is a PayPal link with details on Purchase Protection.
