I'm wondering whether basic money requests - as in, NOT regular invoices - have any buyer or seller protection.
PayPal keeps changing the names of their services and I feel perpetually confused.
Any help is appreciated!
You have seller protection if you pay via...
1. Send money > goods / services.
2. Paypal.me link AS LONG AS its a business one OR you tick the box on the payment to say your are paying for goods / services.
4. Money request.
However paypal buyer or seller protection is never a 100% coverall so you need to read up on them to risk assess your transactions.
