- PaisaPay is eBay's online payment service, where buyers can pay sellers through credit card or Online Bank Transfer. Buyers should use PaisaPay for fast, assured purchases or your money back!

How does PaisaPay work?
Buyers pay eBay using credit card or online bank transfer. PaisaPay confirms the payment and advises seller to ship.
Seller enters shipping details on the My PaisaPay section in My eBay and ships the item.
Important: This is an important step – the buyer is eligible for a refund if the seller does not enter shipping details within the timelines.
Buyer receives the item and confirms the delivery.
Note: The buyer can also claim a refund if the item is not delivered. The buyer must complete this action within timelines to be eligible for a refund through PaisaPay. After the timeline is over, the buyer can claim a refund through the eBay Buyer Protection Program.
After the buyer confirms item was delivered (or does not respond within timelines), the seller's Paisapay account is credited with the payment. The money is then remitted to the sellers bank account in the next Payment cycle.
Note: Qualified sellers will receive their payments as soon as they input shipping details in the PaisaPay system.

eBay periodically transfers the payments online to the seller's registered bank account.

What are the important action points to remember?
  As part of the new PaisaPay transaction flow, you will now need to keep in mind certain milestones and action points to ensure that your transaction goes smoothly.
  • Enter the shipping details: After the buyer has paid for an item, be sure to provide details of shipping within the timelines. If you miss this deadline, PaisaPay will treat this transaction as unsuccessful and refund the buyer’s payment.
  • Meeting delivery deadlines: After providing shipping details, a delivery deadline will be available on the Transaction Details page. You must ensure that the item is delivered to the buyer before this deadline. If the item is delivered within this timeline, the buyer’s payment is transferred to your PaisaPay account, which will be remitted to you after the buyer confirms receipt of the item. If the item does not reach the buyer within this deadline and the buyer informs PaisaPay, PaisaPay will investigate the case and refund the buyers payment.
  • Request for shipping / delivery time extension: If there’s a possibility that you may not be able to ship / deliver the item within the specified shipping deadline, you can request the buyer for a time extension. Be sure to request for a time extension before the deadline to enter shipping details.
  • Provide proof of delivery to PaisaPay: When the delivery deadline is over, PaisaPay will request the buyer to confirm whether the item was delivered or not. If the buyer confirms that an item was not delivered, PaisaPay will initiate a refund. However, if you have shipped the item and the buyer has accepted the delivery, you should contact PaisaPay immediately. PaisaPay will investigate the case and accordingly refund the buyers payment or remit the amount to the seller.
