Paypal can and will give your money back anyways. I sold something on ebay a long time ago, and went through it. He filed a claim with paypal instead of even talking to me. I sent paypal everything they asked for, tracking number and all that. They sided with the buyer. Luckily, it was only $100.
NON-GIFT Paypal has coverage. I believe if you do a transaction using the Gift method, then there is no helping you out, if you run into trouble with a transaction.
My most recent transaction on POTN, is considered my worst. But by other's standards, it's not bad at all. And in the end, it all worked out A-OK. I purchased a lens from someone on here, received it a few days later. Upon taking it out of the box, the lens was horrendously hard to manual focus past a certain point. And when in AF mode, the lens wouldn't even focus past 4meters. Long story short, I got my money back, sans shipping back to the seller. But, the seller was remorseful and in the end, refunded my money without question.
