How can they get their money BACK if they were never paid ????

Buyer protection program wants buyer to make the first step. This is the default PayPal precondition.
Seller is less protective. He must proof his shipping & delivery.
@kernowlass I wrote above: Only if paid he can get funds back.
Buyer must make the first step - send the funds to seller.
Seller could ship later and provide tracking number.
Any other sequences causes scam!
