Having peace of mind goes a long way when you’re buying online. That’s why eBay and PayPal offer various types of buyer protection coverage for items you purchase on eBay. Coverage depends on where you purchase your item and how you pay for it. Read on to learn more about our buyer protection programmes.
Coverage for your eBay items purchased on eBay.com.my:
eBay’s Standard Purchase Protection Programme (SPPP), covers qualified transactions on the eBay.com.my site, except for items paid for with cash or instant money transfer services. The maximum coverage amount is up to RM750 , minus a RM95 processing fee. Learn more about the eBay Standard Purchase Protection Programme.
Coverage for your eBay items purchased internationally (not on eBay.com.my):
PayPal’s Buyer Protection Programme (PBP) is designed to cover your purchases on eBay international sites when you pay using PayPal. Maximum coverage amounts will vary and are based on the site where you purchased your item. To determine eligibility and coverage on your item(s), look for the PayPal logo in the ‘Buy Safely’ section of the item description page. Learn more about eligibility or coverage amounts.
New! Even More Coverage for Your International Purchases on eBay.com.au!
PayPal’s buyer protection coverage for items purchased on eBay.com.au has been increased from 3,000 AUD to 20,000 AUD for qualifying items paid with PayPal*.
