    Effective 16 Nov 2016 the following changes come in to effect (there are more, but those are mostly commercial) and these could affect buyers & sellers on here -

    PayPal Buyer ProtectionSection 13 is amended to make several amendments to the PayPal Buyer Protection policy as follows:

    1. the following types of transactions are now excluded from coverage of PayPal Buyer Protection (section 13.4a is amended accordingly):

      2. purchases of vehicles (including, without limitation, motor vehicles, motorcycles, caravans, aircraft and boats), except for personally portable light vehicles used for recreational purposes like bicycles and wheeled hoverboards;
      3. payments on crowd-funding and/or crowd-lending platforms;
      4. purchases of items equivalent to cash (including, without limitation, stored value items such as gift cards and pre-paid cards);

    Most will not be particularly relevant but item 2 could be cause for concern and item 9 also, should someone send in a third party courier?

    More on the PayPal site.


    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    I thought item 2 was already in force. I guess they have just extended it to cover more items.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    If I sell a car it is sold as seen, I don't want someone paying by paypal, driving away in the motor and then claiming all sorts of of problems and paypal then freezing my money! Caveat emptor should always apply to motor vehicles and the buyer should ensure he arranges to have the vehicle checked out before buying.

    Read number 9 again, carefully... it is to stop thieving lying twats claiming they haven't received stuff when they have picked it up themselves!!

    I agree - but to send in a 3rd party courier to collect is not an uncommon occurrence?
