I am looking to by a pair of prescription eyeglasses off ebay. I can buy the frames through ebay but to have lenses put in the seller is saying that I have to buy them outside of ebay. He will send me an invoice through paypal and then process the order. My question is, will I be covered through paypal if I don't receive the glasses?
That depends on MANY factors all listed in Paypals buyer protection policy for you to read so you can risk assess your transactions. Legal (bottom right of Paypals pages) > user agreement > buyer protection.
