Best not to buy tat from these China web sites or Social Media ads then to be honest.
In the event of a dispute you need to bear in mind possible return trackable costs before you buy from that seller / item / country because....
Paypal state this >>
PayPal is not obliged to reimburse you for any costs that you incur to comply with any of PayPal’s requests for cooperation for the purpose of resolving the problem (including, without limitation, costs that you incur to return a SNAD item to the Payment Recipient or another party as PayPal requests), although sometimes it may reimburse these costs.
Although they will compensate you for some of the cost if you have activated this at some point before you made that transaction.
If you buy from a business in the UK then you can normally recover those return costs via the small claims court although most UK businesses would reimburse you anyway. (BUT if you choose to buy from a private or international seller you may not have that option).
You also have the option to do a chargeback via your card issuer instead of a Paypal dispute if you funded your Paypal payment via a credit card.
I tried getting a chargeback from Santander who is my credit card provider but they say the same as PayPal i.e. that I need to show proof that I returned the item to Shenzhen Aibili in China. As this will cost me as much as I paid for the Garden Kneeler originally, that is of no help. As this scam Company well knows when they send out only a fabric tool holder, instead of the complete order, no-one is going to return their part item in order to receive a refund from them!
Exact same thing I'm haggling with them about....that stupid garden Bag!!! They want me to return it to China!! I tried to find out where this product originated and was told California!!!! Then as soon as I made the transaction here with PayPal, i got a receipt in CHINESE characters!!!! I am so angry with Paypal who continues to do business with these scammers!!
I filed an IC3, Internet Crime Complaint form and sent them a copy along with a picture of what I ordered and a picture of what I received. NO RESPONSE!!!!
