Hello, so a month ago I hired a developer to code me a large Minecraft plugin, he was recommended to me by a well-known developer. He estimated that the plugin would take 1-3 weeks with the information I provided to him. So far it's been 36 days and still not done. I have paid him every week and had bought buyer protection on each payment just as an insurance policy I guess. So my question is, am I eligible for buyer protection on all the payments I sent to him since he's taken up so much more time than the estimate he's given which has led to me sending a considerably larger amount of money then I intended on spending when I first hired him.
You don't buy Paypal buyer protection, its a given when you purchase goods or services.
If you haven't received a service you requested then you can open a dispute and the seller may then refund and if not then its up to Paypal to decide whether they will credit you the funds under their buyer protection policy.
