Hello @emmaharrison105,

Welcome to PayPal Community Forum and thank you for posting!


I understand your concern about the purchases made via Facebook and sorry to know about what has happened. As all payments sent through the Facebook P2P platform are to be treated as personal payments, they do not offer the seller or buyer protection. Standard procedures regarding how to dispute personal payments (P2P) will apply. In this case, please reach out to the Facebook team if they can help you solve this issue.


Best wishes,
