It has always been my understanding that a paypal dispute should be filed as a method of last resort, if you are unable to get satisfaction from the vendor.
I can't help but wonder whether the reason so many well known Warriors, and indeed lesser known Warriors like myself, have had issues with their paypal accounts is because of irresponsible use of the Dispute function with Paypal.
I know the main reason is that there is a large spike in sales volumes, but I am pretty sure that the number of disputes opened may also play a role.
I have also heard that Paypal have been known to ban accounts who always use the dispute functionality within paypal.
So my question is:
Am I right in thinking that the only time a Paypal dispute should be filed is as a matter of last resort and the vendor has been ignoring your requests for help with your product or indeed a refund request?
If so can I urge people to work with the vendors before going down the route of filing disputes. It makes both you and the vendors look bad in Paypals eyes and can lead to limitation or worse closure of your paypal accounts.
This came to my attention on another thread where someone had some minor delivery issues and rather than talk to the vendor went straight to file a dispute with paypal. Just struck me as rather irresponsible.
