Yes, payments on PayPal can be reversed for one reason or the other. Receiving a payment reversal notifications is one turning point in time of all of those who use PayPal as their payment processor, when it comes to selling online. Whether you sell on a shopping site like eBay, your own website, blog or on any other site, provided you use the world’s popular processor PayPal, there are so many chances that you will at one time get that unwanted reversal message.
Being notified notifying you of how the funds from some buyer for one reason or the other have been put on hold, where you are required to intervene by way of logging in to your account and solving the dispute, and later waiting for the decision made by PayPal investigations team, this is a hectic situation..
When I was an internet newbie some few years back, I used to read so many stories, and questions where by different users kept asking them selves why their payments had been put on hold or reversed. This I didn’t know that a time will come when I will personally get to share the same.
But guess what, PayPal payment reversal is no longer a worry to me since by all means, it is something which I expect to happen, either as a dispute of unauthorized payments, etc a step which either makes you loose both your sold item and the funds, or you winning the dispute.
In so many cases, lost disputes means payment reversal, and which clearly answers this question. Unauthorized payment and item never matched as was described are some of the very popular disputes which many file against those who sold the item although personally, this leaves me wondering how one can really use someones PayPal account, make a purchase of a digital delivered item, have the item delivered into his email since many sellers will only deliver an item to the PayPal payment email and then the real owner files a dispute after some few days like a week of unauthorized payment.
While it is true to some extent that people fraud others Payments accounts and make purchases, not all of those who claim the same are not the ones who bought. Since the internet is full of so many scams and fraud, others real account owners take advantage of the above, use their real accounts to pay for digital items, use the item and later file a dispute and where by by all means, at least 90% stand chances of winning such cases provided they played the game good thus leaving the buyer with nothing for example the item and the money and at least this has ever happened to me on so many occasions.
What to do when you recieve PayPal payment reversal?
If you are involved in selling some type of products, items or services mainly the digital delivered ones, know it well that you stand a chance of making losses from time to time. Since PayPal looks not to offer seller protection for such items, and where by every time a buyer opens a dispute against you, you stand many chances of loosing the case and have the payment reversed against your will.
If you are contacted by PayPal to solve dispute, the one thing you can do is to provide all the evidence you for example, the Buyer IP address logs assuming you sell on your own website and any other as may be requested by PayPal.
Once you are done with provide your side of the story to PayPal, waiting for the final decision by PayPal team is what you got to do and which may take some few days to months although it may not exceed 90 days. And after you get the case has been solved email, just agree since in many cases, you wont do anything greater than that.
