Paypal delivery fraud warning


Our system can accept PayPal, so there is something that is a common fraud that you should be warned about if you accept PayPal about their buyer protection program. It was told to me by one of our suppliers who got badly burnt. 

A person rings up and places an order for a laptop. They then paid by PayPal. Shortly afterwards they came and picked up the item. A short time afterwards, they opened a dispute with PayPal that they never got the laptop. The seller had no proof of purchase, so PayPal refunded the buyer their money, and the seller is short a laptop.

If you sell an item with PayPal, you need proof of delivery. 

Actually, proof of delivery is a good idea for any payment method.
