For the love of God, do NOT cancel the dispute until the seller actually issues the refund, no matter what the seller says. Written "agreement" is not actual agreement. If you cancel the dispute, the seller no longer has an obligation to you. If you contact PayPal customer service, they will tell you it's your fault that you cancelled the dispute.
That is exactly what Joyfornice Design asked me to do. I sent the request to PayPal that said do not close the case. Didn't help one bit. PayPal ruled in sellers favor. All I was asking for was a refund that they owed for no item shipped at all. PayPal gave them my money for no product. Not very happy with PayPal.
So I ordered several items without checking the opinion about the company. The shops you mentioned above, also mepinky.com operate thje same scam. after writing to them & to paypal & to the company paypal accout was registered I got an email stating that the delivery will be delayed. I answered that I am willing to wait for 5 more days (it was yesterday), but if it will not be send I am demanding my refund. Today I got an email from paypal that the company agreed for a refund, and an email from the company that they are sending the money back. Will see in 30 days. But its a massive scam - https://www.complaintsboard.com/bycompany/qandies-limited-a634585.html watch out for the shops listed under those companies.
Lucky if you get a refund. Same thing happened to me. I filed a case with PayPal and they ruled in sellers favor. How they came to that conclusion I have no idea. They said I did not respond to questions they asked. The questions they asked was amount of purchase and PP-D PayPal number. Under the email they sent to me was the exact information they were asking for. I just copied and pasted it on top and sent it to them again. Needless to say lost respect for PayPal handling cases for me. My case was simple case of receiving only 1 item out of 3 paid for and company not responding to my inquiries. PayPal just gave them my money.
I guess the best we can do is go public with it, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram... PayPal colludes with scammy sellers. PayPal ignores customers complaints about bad sellers and continues to do business with them.
