Its terrible the number of sellers who report that ebay is a way for people to rip them off.
Same with any ecommerce store, not just eBay.
If you can't sniff out a fake sale, you won't last long selling online.
One simple quick check, which sadly fails on mobile devices, is to get the location of the IP that posted the order, when possible, and see if it's near the shipping address.
PayPal can so easily be abused. You can open a dispute to chargeback based on any reasons you want really. To PayPal, the customer is almost always right.
That's pretty much the same with all credit cards today.
You as a merchant have no protection, protection is always for the consumer, hardly ever the merchant, not from the CC company, the shipping company, nobody.
