How long does it take for a claim to get settled?

The process for resolving claims under eBay Guarantee involves following four steps:

  1. Seller Make It Right: Provides (four) 4 calendar days to seller to redress buyer’s concerns from the date when claim is filed.
  2. Eligibility check: This process step involves eligibility checks for the claim per terms and conditions of eBay Guarantee* Program and other eBay Rules and Policies.

  4. Decision and Closure of Claim: This process step involves closure of claim and communication to the users.
Our target is to close all claims within a time frame of 20 business days, however this timeframe for resolving a claim varies, depending on the nature of the transaction, along with how responsive the users, logistic service providers and other stakeholders are.

How do I get to know the status of my claim?

Generally, you will get the progress updates of your claim through our communications via SMS and/or emails (registered with eBay) at regular intervals. If you still have a question, you may clarify the same when you get a call from eBay Customer Service Representative or you may reach us through email, chat or phone with your PaisaPay or Claim ID to serve you better.
