You would have buyer protection if you paid via an invoice / money request that the seller sent you OR you used the send money > goods / services option.
However you would need to make sure that the item you are paying for is fully described when that payment is sent so you have proof of what you paid for.
Also paypal buyer protection is not a 100% coverall, eg if you received the item and it was misdescribed and paypal found in your favour when you opened a dispute then you would STILL have to return the item back to the seller at your own expense before you were refunded (sometimes that cost can outweigh the item cost).
So you need to read up on buyer protection so you can risk assess your transactions.
