Welcome to the PayPal community and thank you for your post.
I understand your concern regarding the pre-order. If you did not receive the item or it's not as described, you may file a dispute in our Resolution Center to start the process of getting your money back. You have 180 days from the transaction date to initiate a dispute. Please check this article to know more information.
I hope this helps.
Well you asked if you would be protected and you got the correct answer NO, so why is that not help?
Or is help just an answer you want to hear?
