PayPal has had this program in place for a while, but I didn’t notice it until recently. If you’re like me and you like to shop, sometimes have to cough up money for returns, and you don’t mind checking out via PayPal… activate Return Shipping on Us.
All the fine print is here.
- US PayPal accounts only.
- Purchase paid fully on PayPal.
- Save your shipping receipt — easiest if you print postage online and save a PDF of the label with postage fee and address. (If you didn’t know, you can print labels directly from PayPal.)
- You don’t need to activate the offer before you make a purchase, but you need to activate it before you submit a refund request. The shipping refund request is processed by a third party.
- Get up to 12 refunds, cap of $30/refund, and 1 refund per transaction ID. This is super generous.
P.S. I often checkout with PayPal because I’m too lazy to get my cc. I have it semi-memorized but fraud often makes me change numbers more often then I’d prefer. I’ve never had any issues with shopping or getting returns credited with PayPal.
