PAD is between you and Paypal. The seller is unaware you are using it as they are still credited the funds in advance. No seller would post an item before being paid.
Funds leave your account at 14 days in which time your item 'may and normally has' arrived however you don't actually have anymore 'buyer protection' than any other buyer.
Its basically a 14 days interest free loan provided by Paypal. BUT its not offered on every transaction and you can only use it when it is, I guess thats down to paypals cash flow status at the time of your transaction maybe?
paypal message says it is still working on itema that alow it.
I have just tried to use the option on an Item that I bought using P.A.D , no luck so the paypal message is WRONG. it is no longer functioning.
It shold have worked fine on same item same seller as it worked with 2-3days ago..
so system is not on
same here no changes made to mu check options so the have defo removed it.
I have tried to clear this up on message paypal but they insist its on..
so no luck from them on this... sees denial is the option they have taken
just got this from paypal.... seesm they dont want to offer due to COVID 19
This is in a way a 14 days a credit PayPal offers. This feature is not a given, and at this point is not available due to factors like either you have reached a number of transactions using it or there are risks at the time with allowing these transactions as we pay the sellers upfront and in these uncertain times the system might stop giving this option.
seems that way
paypal seems to be saying that ...
Bit unclear why it has worked for me for nearly every purchase for the last 2 years in and out of ebay with other online sellers.
and now no longer able to use even with sellers that I have never had an issue with..
It seems to be PAYPALs way of dealing with covid 19.
Paypals reply is exactly what i said in my above post. It has nothing to do with the seller, Paypal offers it (the seller is still paid upfront and has no idea you are using it) and its not always available dependent on their cashflow and other factors.
The only time a seller has to show an option that is offered is paypal credit.
