PayPal?`

How long should you wait before fililng a claim through paypal. I paid for RS Headlight from a member on 2/4, He shipped and provided one tracking # on 2/6. He did say he was out of town and would ship the other one by the end of the week. I have tried contacting hime through here twice ad email twice on 2/11 and 2/13 and have still not heard anything on the other RS headlight being shipped. Any thought? Or advice on how I should move forward.

Immediately. Case can always be dropped if member responds. Do it now.

I believe paypal says 7 days, ground shipping only takes 4 days from day shipped.

I would put in a claim already, you have given him ample time to send the headlight or just even respond to your PM's.

why were they not shipped together? This may have an impact on how long I would wait but I would generally say a week is plenty of time.

I filed the Paypal claim and let him know on both here and his personal email that the claim was initiated. He had a good trader rating on here that's why I didn't think anything of it. Oh well, there always a first time for everything.



I hope the guy has just been super busy. I would much rather receive my second headlight.

WOW

Just received an email from him and he said the one he had was not up to his standard and that he had a better on to send that he would send tomorrow and provide the tracking. I just wished he would have told me sooner to avoid all this here and paypal .

Dang, yeah I guess they updated it to 180 days this past November. That is way too many days in my opinion. I had my fair share of dumb scammers abusing the system already with 45 days.

I think he was asking how long before you can file a claim, not how long do you have to file a claim.

as I stated above, I believe paypal requires you to wait 7 days.. they want the seller to have a chance to ship and have it delivered.

ground shipping is 4 days, so paypal requires 7 days before you can file. but it all depends on the transaction.

I know ebay transactions are 7 days, pretty sure any site that takes paypal is also 7 days, but a volunteer transfer of funds without an invoice created by paypal could be different.

I don't understand this PayPal. You can buy something and then file a claim and keep the item and you always get your money back.

NOPE! I always send signature required. You can't file a claim and get your money back if you signed for the package. The protection works both ways, there are Scammer sellers and buyers trying to get over. It's all about Character.... I've used PayPal to spend tens of thousands of dollars. I never had to file a claim, things come up, people get busy in life, shipping a headlight could get put on the back burner, doesn't make the guy a crook.

no not quite..

paypal protects the seller much more than the buyer..


The seller has only to prove they shipped the item, which only requires a tracking number sent to the zip code of the buyer.. If they can provide that information the buyer is basically screwed if all they send was an empty box.

I've been on both sides of claims from paypal, As a seller someone trying to do as you stated, received the item and then claim they never got it and try to get their money back while keeping the item.

As a seller I ALWAYS ship thru the paypal system, then the tracking information is linked to the transaction and the receipt of the package can be verified by paypal.


From a buyer stand point I have purchased things that have not been delivered or not delivered as described, and paypal will drag ass helping the buyer (because refunding the buyer means paypal loses it's fees) and they make the buyer jump thru hoops to prove whatever their issue is..

I always use the pay later option.

PayPal draws the funds out of your account 14 days after the transaction. This way, if you file a claim it's paypals money in the mix, not yours.
