PAYPAL IS NOT SAFE OUTSIDE EBAY
I just wanted to let you all know that paypal offers absolutely no buyer protection outside of ebay. I bought several hundred dollars worth of merchandise off of DHGATE. To make a long story short, the product that I ordered was not as described, I filed a claim with paypal, it was closed in DHGATE favor immediately-because they do not offer any protection outside of ebay. I have been on the phone with paypal-very upset over the loss of all of my money-absolutely nothing they will do. So, please be careful when purchasing from DHGATE and realize that paypal does not make it safe necessarily. I have ordered many great items from DHGATE, this was a first. Good luck.
