Buying an Item

Hi, I’m trying to buy an item online and want to use PayPal so that I can protect my money if the item sent isn’t what I wanted or paid for. How can I send the money but put it on hold so hat the funds aren’t released until I receive the item and confirm that the item is what I paid for

Paypal doesn't offer an escrow service and no seller would send an item before being paid.

Your best bet is to go and read up on Purchase Protection in Paypals user agreement so you can risk assess your transactions based on the coverage they offer.
