Disputing a payment sent via friends and family

Post by Jenn131218 »

If you send money from friends and family, can you initiate a dispute with PayPal?

No, because PayPal friends and family payments don't provide any buyer protection. They are strictly meant to be "gift" or informal payments. So if you're buying or selling stuff online, PayPal strongly suggests against using friends and family payments as they do not provide any type of buyer-seller protection.
