Depends on how they sent the payment. If they paid by credit card, they can chargeback regardless of the payment is eligible for dispute or not. The sender can dispute the payment via PayPal Purchase Protection if they send payment as goods and services. If they sent payment as friends and family from their PayPal balance, they can't dispute it unless it is a genuine unauthorized transaction (as determined by PayPal). It's not a friend who would do a chargeback on you if they knowingly sent you money.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
