Paying for a 2nd hand Laptop which will be mailed

Hello everyone, i have met a seller online who is willing to sell me a laptop. Just wanted to see if i send the money to the buyer and put payments for goods or services and a full description of the laptop i would be covered under buyer protection? Say if the laptop come and it was faulty or never arrived would i be able to start up a dispute and have any luck? The seller seems to think this stopped in July 2017.

 

Thanks

As long as you pay using the goods / services option and put in a full description of the item you are paying for them you should be able to open a dispute for 'item received but not as described'.

 

However it may be better to ask the seller to send you an invoice or money request and put on a FULL description of what she is selling for you.

Why does she think buyer protection no longer exists, of course it does but it is never a 100% coverall so your best bet is to read up on it in paypals user agreement so you can risk assess your transaction.

 

Good luck.
