New Service Created, Paypal Does Not Protect Me

6 replies
Hi Warriors,

As you may be know, I am Portuguese.

This is the land of opportunities for those who want to build new business models in the web: lot's of available niches, even sub-niches in top markets.

So a few days ago i decided to create a "Niche Store". That's right, it's a site where i sell my expertise in niche searches and sell it for 19,95€ or 29,95€ per niche: includes PDF report with keyword(s) competition and a video describing at least one approach to build a business model.

I don't sell niches - i sell business model ideas.

Now the ugly part: Paypal does not protect me. if a buyer decides to reverse payment after i gave him all the gold, he can do it.

Mas, i am pissed off.

Thoughts?

Fernando

    Can you name a payment processor that does protect you against this? Chargebacks are part of business just like refunds, and cannot be prevented.

    Fernando, the way I look at it is chargebacks and refunds just happen... it's part of the cost of doing business. In my opinion the best thing you can do with this is be proactive about it and model your business so as to discourage the thought of "in and out" buying. Think about:

    - Offering free updates for life
    - Making it a subscription
    - Access to a member's area
    - Offering free email consultations (which you'd probably be answering anyway)
    - Making up some kind of "loyalty rewards" or discounts on future purchases
    - Setting up a schedule of bonuses

    We're currently discussing the "schedule of bonuses" idea over here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ions-mile.html It's directed toward affiliate sales but I'm pretty sure you can get some nice ideas from it.

    In any case, IMO the answer lies not in looking to Paypal or some other processor to protect you but for you to control the situation yourself as best you can.

    Harry,

    You just provided a answer to my prayers. Will add for now the services:

    - free email consultations
    - free updates
    - discounts on future purchases

    Plus:

    - At the moment you buy, you get the Service
    - Two weeks in, you get Bonus 2
    - Four weeks in, you get Bonus 3
    - Six weeks in, you get Bonus 4
    - Eight weeks in, you get Bonus 5

    That's it. My service will improve and i know the % of happy customers will be way bigger.


    Thanks again Harry,
    Fernando

      Lol, don't worry about any beer man (my gut is big enough as it is), just come back and share your results, that's what it's all about!

        I will, maybe not in this thread, but i will.

        Jason,
        It's hard to find Paypal payers here... If i go to EGold, i am screwed.

    If you dont want to offer refunds or protect yourself from chargebacks you can use an ecurrency payment system like e-gold. It is as good as cash
