Q: There are so many ways to pay for things online, including PayPal, Bpay and now Poli. But which ones will refund my money if I buy from a dodgy seller?
A: If you're not sure if the person or company you're dealing with is legit, or you're concerned they could go bankrupt, you're better off using a payment method that provides chargeback rights, such as a credit card or Eftpos Online (expected to be offered next year). MasterCard and Visa debit cards also provide chargeback rights, as long as you use the credit option. PayPal offers you no guarantees through its Buyer Protection policy in this situation, but chargeback rights apply if you paid with a relevant card.
