What happens if you get scammed on eBay?

Ebay take this very seriously and they will be required to show proof of shipping, tracking etc. To continue business they will be required to either refund you or send the item. Alternatively you can do what is called a ‘ChargeBack’/Dispute. I know several people who do not use Ebay much and have been scammed.

How can you tell if an eBay seller is legit?

Look at the seller’s score on the product page.

Whenever you view an eBay product, there is box on the right side of the screen with the seller’s overall score. There are two pieces of information in this box. The first is a star with a number next to it. That number is the amount of feedback ratings the seller has.

Can you get scammed through PayPal?

Once a scammer has hacked into somebody else’s PayPal account (as in the case of the phishing email scam), they can make purchases and send payments with the money from the account they have taken over. PayPal may reimburse the seller if they are able to confirm that the account that made the payment was hacked.

Do eBay sellers see your credit card number?

If you pay with your credit card through PayPal, no, the seller does not see your card information. If you give the seller the cc number, etc., yes.

Can eBay seller cancel order after payment?

You can cancel a transaction up to 30 days after a sale, even if your buyer has already paid.

Can I refuse to give a refund on eBay?

Tell your buyer to return the watch and you’ll refund in full on return. If you refuse to refund and the buyer opens a case and you still refuse to refund, then ebay will just take the money out of your account and give it to the buyer who may not even be told to return the watch. Your decision, refund now or later.

Who pays for return shipping on eBay?

This is another area where sellers can lose money, so eBay allows sellers to specify who pays the return shipping. Obviously, if the item is grossly misrepresented, damaged, or the seller is at fault in the listing, eBay will require that the seller pays return shipping. Otherwise, the buyer usually pays.
