    Collectible currency still covered since it is not the equivalent of cash...just like shiney metal discs.

    It seems like the wording is deliberately ambiguous so Paypal can do as it pleases, when it pleases.

    The question is... Can we take a 1899 dollar and pay with it in Walmart? If yes, Paypal may say that it's like cash.
    Looking for:

    1. Any The Zanzibar Government note in any condition.

    Well if that's the test, then $2s are probably fine...

    Greg, it still stands that if coins or currency fall under the category of collectibles then it is not considered equivalent of cash. Even though we ALL know that a 1928 star note IS worth it's face value, regardless of it's numismatic value. But as said, it is a collectible and then is safe from the new wording. Cripes I was behind a guy who paid for his gas with a roll of Kennedy halves, 64's! Unfortunately the clerk wouldn't let me buy them after she realised what they were, dang! I would take them at face value all day long!
  • I would assume that anything of Numismatic value would still be covered. But I agree with SaorAlba, that PayPal is more than likely intentionally leaving it a gray area.

    Imho, you'll be out the face value. For example, the loss of a vg $500 sold for $750-ish would net you circa $250 from a claim. You'd be out $1000 on a bag of circ 90%.

    Has anyone actually been paid from Paypal buyer protection for anything? Im not really sure when they would pay. If its a stolen identity its a charge back , if it gets lost in the mail its a postal or insurance issue . If the buyer files a charge back for pretty much any reason. Its on the seller. So when does Paypal pay for something? I've never had a problem where they covered it. Just curious if anyone has benefited from this policy. Buyer or seller.

    I did once. When the buyer went the distance and failed with Ebay, then Paypal, he went for a charge back on his CC. I went the distance with Paypal, and won.
  • Anyone since run into problems with this policy yet?

    Come and see a forgotten piece of history.....
