A friend and I plan to sell some digital stuff of ours and we could end getting a few hundred £.
How can we protect ourselfs if we use paypal? Whats stopping the buyer from paying for the product and then reversing the charge once they've received the item?
Since it's digital stuff there will be no postage involved, so i cant prove the content has been delivered that way. Has anyone got experience with this and how i can protect myself from potentially unlawful people
It's 3D art that my friend has created and she's had offers on it so she wants to sell and use my PayPal which Iím happy to help with.
She owns and created the work, so there are no worries there. It's just in the past we know of people in a similar situation who have been scammed and we would like to avoid that if possible
Is there some way we can prove the buyer has received the digital art that would stand if the buyer reversed the charge and tried to scam us? I've read if the buyer sends the payment as a payment for a 'service' and adds in the comments no physical items are involved that PayPal donít get involved if the buyer then tries to reverse the charge. Not sure how true this is though.
Use a third-party escrow service. The buyer sends the money to the escrow service, you send the files, they tell the escrow service they've recived the files and everything's fine, the escrow service releases the money to you.Is there some way we can prove the buyer has received the digital art that would stand if the buyer reversed the charge and tried to scam us?
Edit: a quick Google search turns up the following:

eJunkie? I've only used the website as an end-user buying digital goods from someone else, but I'm sure there is a way you can prove someone has downloaded the file(s). I know you can create links which expire after a pre-defined amount of time and/or certain number of downloads.
