Yey, just got my first reversal. Thanks Envato. :|

Hi EladChai,

I’m not sure that what you’re seeing is related to the “sales reversal”. I’ll get someone from support to contact you for more info and help out.

thanks :)

The problem is not with PayPal, because there is no chance for refund in the Paypal system if you bought a digital product. Refunds are possible for physical products only. The problem is with Visa & MasterCard chargebacks (friendly fraud) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chargeback http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friendly_fraud

Anyway as I know there is a seller protection if you use 3D secure: http://www.visaeurope.com/en/cardholders/verified_by_visa.aspx http://www.web-merchant.co.uk/3dsecure.asp

Nice information, Diabolique.. but I still don’t get it… How can 3D secure protects merchants from disputes ? I think they only help prevent by reducing possibilities.. not protect. Or have I missed some lines?

You can still open a ‘dispute’ via Paypal, which temporarily deducts the money from the seller’s account (i.e Envato’s account) until the dispute is solved. This money is deducted immediately and outside of Envato’s control, although Support do have the means to settle a dispute and reclame the money.

A chargeback is taken out of Paypal’s account and then Paypal take the money out of the seller’s account. Envato / the Seller / Paypal have no real control over the outcome of this and Paypal will not cover you if you sell intangible goods.

I recently had several chargebacks during a promotion. Not only did Paypal take the money (after I showed the users had downloaded the files), but the credit card company charge me a fee to ‘investigate’ the transaction, so it ended up costing me a hundred dollars or so too for the investigations. Paypal deducted the money from my account automatically for the investigation charge.

The transactions all took place and were all ‘charged back’ in the same time periods, so I suspect the person / people behind them knew that it was a dead cert way to get content free.

However, consider yourselves lucky that Envato will cover the investigative costs if need be, rather the Authors.
