Along with the new IPO which does have a date set, the company has been using the spinoff to let people know they updated their terms. One problem for domain investors selling domain names and using Paypal has been no seller protection, to be fair there was no buyer protection either.
Paypal sent out an email that there will now be buyer protection on intangible goods and while providing no seller protection, they have laid out what a seller must do to have any chance to dispute a buyer claim.
Also, our purchase protection is now being extended to intangible items and services. You should be prepared to provide “compelling evidence” that you provided the intangible or virtual item or service, should a buyer dispute a transaction. Compelling evidence includes any evidence available to prove the buyer received the goods or services, or benefitted from the transaction. Examples include proof the buyer accessed your site or downloaded a file, and/or relevant portions of terms and conditions to which the buyer agreed. Although Purchase Protection will now extend coverage to buyers for intangible items, Seller Protection won’t apply to intangible items. However, having proper proof of delivery can help a seller win a buyer’s purchase protection claim.
