Seller asking for 2 Payments Instead of One

I'm trying to buy a camera but the seller is requesting I pay 50% in 2 payments instead of 100% all at once due to his business account have a daily "limit". Is this a real thing? It's through goods & services so am I protected?

Ask the seller for a PayPal invoice that allows partial payments:

 

"Allow partial payments

If you want to accept a deposit or partial payment from your customer, check the Allow partial payment box at the bottom of your invoice. You can also set a minimum amount. Your customer can then make a full payment, pay the minimum, or pay an amount greater than the minimum.

 

Your invoice will have a Partially Paid status until it’s paid in full. The amount paid will also appear on the invoice for both you and your customer.

 

The partial payments feature allows your customers to make multiple payments toward the full balance of one invoice, rather than you having to submit multiple invoices. It is not intended to be a credit product or to allow for an excessive number of payments to be made. We may contact customers if we suspect they’re not using this feature correctly."

 

I think this will also allow it to be disputed as one transaction.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
