Payment methods

All payments are through paypal.

About paypal payment method

PayPal allows you to make payments using a variety of methods including: PayPal Balance, bank account, credit card, PayPal Credit, and debit card. Because your protection against undelivered or defective goods will vary with each method, you should review this page to understand how you can select a payment method and how protection differs depending on your payment method.

This page does not address unauthorized transactions. For information on your protection against unauthorized transactions, please see section 12 of the PayPal User Agreement.

When you make a payment, if you have not selected a Preferred Payment Method, PayPal will fund your transaction in this order:

If you do not want to use your Balance, you can withdraw it before making a payment.

Preferred Payment Method

You may select a Preferred Payment Method each time you make a payment, except when making a Preapproved Payment, a No Log-In Payment, or an In-Store Checkout payment. Certain Payment Methods may not be available for certain transactions if there are Payment Method limitations, including if you make a PayPal payment through certain third party websites or applications, or if you use PayPal for In-Store Checkout. For a Preapproved Payment or, in most instances, a No Log-In Payment, you can select a Preferred Payment Method when you provide your initial authorization for this payment and through the My Preapproved Payments section of your Account Profile (it may be called "Backup Payment Method"). For In-Store Checkout payments, you may change your Preferred Payment Method in your Account Profile prior to initiating your transaction.

If you select a Preferred Payment Method but have available Balance in your Account, your Balance will be used to fund your payment first. If you set a PayPal Credit product or eCheck as your Preferred Payment Method in your Account Profile, it will be used to fund your PayPal payments first, even if you have a Balance. eCheck is not an available Payment Method for In-Store Checkout.

PayPal Purchase Protection (also known as PayPal Buyer Protection) applies for certain, qualifying purchases regardless of the payment method. For these qualifying purchases, PayPal will cover you for the full amount of the item plus original shipping costs if you do not receive the item or if you receive an item but it is significantly different than the description the seller provided. To receive reimbursement for items that are significantly not as described, you will be required to return the item to the seller, or in some cases to PayPal, and to pay the return shipping costs. PayPal Purchase Protection is not available for In-Store Checkout transactions.

To be eligible for PayPal Purchase Protection, you must file a Dispute in the PayPal Resolution Center within 45 days of the date you sent the payment, escalate the Dispute to a Claim within 20 days of the date you filed the Dispute, and meet the eligibility criteria in Section 13 of the PayPal User Agreement.

Credit Card Protection

Credit card chargeback rights are broader than PayPal's protection programs. Credit card chargebacks may be filed more than 45 days after the payment and may cover unsatisfactory items even if they do not qualify as significantly not as described.

You may pursue a Dispute/Claim with PayPal, or you may contact your credit card company and file a chargeback. You may not pursue both at the same time or seek a double recovery. If you have an open Dispute or Claim with PayPal, and also file a chargeback with your credit card company, PayPal will close your Dispute or Claim, and you will have to rely solely on your chargeback rights.

If you pursue a Claim with PayPal and if you do not receive a full recovery, you can then file a chargeback. If PayPal does not make a final decision on your Claim until after your credit card issuer's deadline for filing a chargeback, and because of our delay you recover less than the full amount you would have been entitled to recover from the credit card issuer, we will reimburse you for the remainder of your loss (minus any amount you have already recovered from the seller).
