Not totally true. PayPal also screws buyers. I was done over BIGTIME by PayPal/e-Bay.
Seller got away scotfree, left me with a duff item and de-registered from both PayPal and e-Bay stat!
I wish there was a credible alternative but there isn't. They keep bleating on about buyer protection but when push comes to shove, they can be shite!
