How Do I Get My Money Back From PayPal?

how to get your paypal refund

A refund of money paid for either goods or services is usually made when transactions do not go well or according to plan. Ordinarily, such processes ought to be simple and fast, but sometimes getting a refund can be very devastating and might even culminate in a customer losing his/her money entirely.

How does one guard against this colossal loss and what modalities should be adopted to prevent this from happening? These are some of the questions this post aims to answer, to ensure that you can get your money back after payment, provided the whole transaction has not exceeded a certain stipulated period beyond which any refund may be difficult or downright impossible.

To regale us on these refund procedures, for maximum benefit and ease of the entire process, we shall take the issue on in a methodical approach that should be easily understandable to all.

  The first scenario where a customer may want a refund is when the customer pays for an item or article and the payment for the said item remains pending, even after when it has taken long enough to be processed.

In this case, the customer can initiate the refund process by canceling the activity on his or her activity page, if the button for cancellation of such transaction is seen.

In these kinds of situations, though sadly not in all cases, the money can luckily be refunded automatically, if it is not claimed by the seller after thirty(30) days. However, beyond thirty days, this process can be quite tedious and may not likely even work at all.

 Secondly, the refund request may rightly become the next option if an item has been paid for, but for whatever reason(s), such item bought has not been received or is actually even received but not as described.

In some cases, you may even have the feeling or belief that the payment is not even authorized. Whatever the complaints, provided this is what is believed to have happened, you can file a case in the PayPal Resolution Centre to set off (or start) the process of getting your money back.

Successful initiation may trigger a refund that will lead to the complete recovery of your money.

In the third instance, you may have a change of mind on the purchase after you have paid a merchant and therefore wish to have your money back. It is easy, even in such cases as this, to actually get your money refunded in full.

All you have got to do here is to get across to(or contact) the seller and request that they should terminate or cancel your purchase. If however the payment has been completed, you may do well to make enquiries about their return policies or request a refund right away.

The steps below may have to be reviewed in order to be able to find the merchant’s contact information for any refund to be made. Firstly, you may have to contact your seller to find their contact information by clicking on the ‘Activity’ button on the top of the page and from there you can then click on the particular transaction from your list of recent transactions.

On the ‘Transaction Details’ page, you will see the sellers details; his or her name, email or even in some cases, the seller’s customer service phone number. Use whatever you glean here to reach out to them and request that your purchase be cancelled.

In all cases, you are encouraged to try resolving the issue with the seller. Whatever goes wrong with your purchase, start by visiting the PayPal’s Resolution Centre and try to resolve the issue directly with the seller and to do so effectively, you may have to open up a dispute complaint atmost within one hundred and eighty(180) days from the date the payment was made.

If on the other hand you are not able to open a dispute or could not reach an agreement or the issues have escalated to a claim, visit PayPal’s Resolution Centre within twenty days after opening the dispute to escalate the process to a claim which will enable PayPal to review the claim and decide on the best outcome for everyone’s sake.

Once PayPal investigates and resolves the claim, they will be able to make informed decisions but may ask for some documents on the transaction. The full amount for the purchase and even the shipping costs shall be refunded, but only if the case has been decided in your favor.

A chargeback is defined as the process of a customer disputing a charge and asking their card issuer for a refund. PayPal however, does not initiate or even handle chargebacks, only the credit card issuer does according to the card issuer’s policy.

All the same, PayPal has a policy that allows buyers to simply demand for refunds in transactions and inform their credit card company to cancel or make refund for any payment made. In cases of chargebacks, PayPal may however freeze the funds in the seller’s account.

There are several reasons that may lead to chargebacks, which include: the buyer not getting the product, the purchased product is damaged or defective, the buyer not being able to recognize or remember the credit card payment, the buyer getting charged more than once for a single transaction and finally, when the buyer did not authorize the payment.

In all these cases, PayPal can assist the refund process, to make sure you get your money back, by freezing your payment in the seller’s account. Another excellent way buyers can manage a refund on PayPal is through using a breakthrough electronic commerce assurance and the order verification application.

These verification apps are known to charge a neglible amount to guarantee verification of orders and a one hundred percent refund guarantee in cases of chargebacks.

There is the need to remember that when dealing with chargebacks, that buyers are eligible for a refund on PayPal transactions after one hundred and twenty days or more and that chargebacks on PayPal take a few weeks to seventy five days, depending on the nature of the cases being dealt with.

PayPal, in most cases, takes sides with the customers to get their money refunded with the least possible delay while the seller is left unattended to. You are sure to get PayPal’s seller protection, though associated rules and regulations are guiding this protection guarantee.

It would have been most distasteful if refund were not possible where transaction issues go south, but thankfully that is not so.

All buyers are, for obvious reasons, advised to ascertain that whatever conditions are laid in transactions, they obey and respect them to the latter because you never know when they may come in handy to save you from undue losses.

To conclude the post, we are advised to avail ourselves of the knowledge that will enable us to get refunded in transactions from which we have complaints since the procedures are easy enough to accomplish.

Niche Scraper Vs EcomHunt Review 2021 [Best Tool] 

Niche Scraper Vs EcomHunt Review 2021

Advancements in technology and the internet have made Drop shipping a profitable e-commerce venture to engage in. The online trading world is proliferated with different items that can be traded.

As a Drop shipper, how do you reduce the burden of knowing which products to sell to maximize profit, monitor market trends, target the proper audience, or get the best winning products? well, you need not worry too much because this article would be reviewing two of the best drop shopping tools.

They both share several similarities as their primary prerogative is to fish out winning products. At the end of this article, there would be a quick comparison of the two Dropshipping tools. This could help you know which is more suitable for your products or business.

Below is a rundown of what both tools can offer you—as a potential user.

Niche Scraper Review

Niche scraper is an e-commerce tool that can be used by drop shippers to source out winning products, by proffering trading evaluations on items within the e-commerce world. This helps Drop shippers know the best items that are likely to become successful sales. It also gives you access to items on Aliexpress and Shopify.

Niche scraper is set up to offer these main services:

  • Pick-out Winning Products
  • Store Analysis
  • Video Marker

Pick-out Winning products

As earlier mentioned, this is one of the foremost service offered by niche scraper. It helps users spot Winning products that could increase their chances of successful sales. It also offers daily updates about the best product for your store. With less hassle these products can be added to your Shopify store (if you have one), to enable you to display and sell directly to your customers.

It offers other necessary information such as;

  • Product cost
  • Product description
  • The rate at which products are ordered
  • The kind of audience to target social media
  • The function of the product, and information about the supplier

Store Analysis

This feature helps you closely observe and monitor the progress of products on different Shopify stores. By browsing using keywords from specific products, their importance, or their popularity in stores, you can obtain access to information such as:

  • Popularity of products
  • Price estimates
  • Information about product traffic, as well as other necessary information about the products to enable your successful entry into the market.

Video Marker

This is an incredible tool that enables you to use images to create videos for advertising your products. You have the option of using the existing video—which is obtained from being a member, but you can equally create yours if you think it is insufficient.

READ ALSO: Ecomhunt Review 2021

You can do this by simply pasting the URL of the product image on the video maker software. In a short while, it would create a thrilling video for your product.

Niche Scraper Plans

Niche scraper offers three plans which are:

  • Free plan

Users of this plan would have to endure 3 days’ delay in having access to winning products in Niche scraper. This also comes with other inconveniences such as restricted functions and access to the best products within the tool.

  • Pro Membership plan

Under this plan, you have unrestricted access to all the functions and best winning products. Its price ranges from about $35 to $39 monthly. It also gives you unrestricted access to create different video advertisements for as many products as possible.

  • Annual Pro membership plan

This plan is virtually the same as the Pro membership plan. But as the name implies, it’s a yearly subscription plan which offers you the staggering benefit of getting an astounding 60% discount.

In capping up the review on niche scraper, it is important for us to briefly examine its advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages

  • It allows payment using most payment platforms such as debit cards, credit cards, and PayPal.
  • It offers a reasonably cheap plan, with its 60% discount gotten from the annual pro membership plan.
  • Its user interface can be easily navigated; which is especially good for beginners.
  • You can easily create thrilling video advertisements by using product images.
  • It examines the best-selling products on other stores and provides you with their ratings, and how best market them.

Disadvantages

  • Its pricing can be a little too much for individuals with low budgets
  • Payment with a debit card can be challenging.

With that, we move to:

EcumHunt Review

Ecumhunt is an excellent tool for finding out the best product for your store. It offers the necessary information on everything you need to know about the product.

It keeps tabs on big names in the e-commerce industry such as Aliexpress, as well as social media handles.

Similar to Niches scraper it arms you with necessary information about winning products.

Ecumhunt comes with certain features; which we shall touch briefly before comparing it with Niche scraper.

First is its:

Interface

Similar to Niche scraper, Ecumhunt’s interface is quite easy to navigate. In Ecumhunt you are saved the stress of assessing products yourself, for it sends daily information about winning products to your selected store. All products come with their Facebook targets, video advertisement copy, other necessary information, as well as connections to suppliers.

You can also get the price of products as gotten from its seller and your possible profit. You can as well transfer these products to your Shopify account (if you have one).

Facebook Ads

Ecumhunt gives access to Facebook ads to enable you to attract the right audience to your store. It equally offers free mouth-watering product videos to use in your store. Also, as a beginner, you can get access to free tutorials on Facebook targeting to enable you to find your way around the system.

Product Analysis

This helps you know the degree of profit you stand to make by enhancing your ad campaign to know how best to market your product.

You can get information about the location of the product, reviews, ratings, and other benefits.

AdHunter Chrome Extension

This is a mouth-watering feature that gives you catered access to important Facebook Ads for marketing your products.

It equally shows you sponsored ads and their duration.

The possibility of enjoying this feature is enhanced when you become an active member.

Internet seminars, Videos, and Tutorials

This is especially helpful to beginners of the dropshipping business. Here you are exposed to the basics of the business and how to grow. Although it is limited to pro members.

Online connections to Winning products

As mentioned earlier Ecumhunt offers you links to winning products as well as a variety of best products to choose from.

  • Ecumhunt Membership Plans

Contrary to niche scraper it comes with two functional plans; the free membership and the pro membership plan. The former gives a restriction on products for 3 days.

And also come with several constraints and restrictions. Therefore, to maximize your experience you would need to upgrade to the pro version. The pro membership plan costs about $29, but a discounted rate you can get it for $20.

Before we compare and contrast both tools, we would briefly touch the advantages and disadvantages of using Ecumhunt.

Advantages

• You get a detailed assessment of the best-selling products in other stores and their ratings. • You have access to amazing video ads • It helps you know how best to reach your target audience. • It comes with an easy to use interface with videos and tutorial options.

Disadvantages

  • No annual plans
  • It has restrained payment options.
  • It does not specify the product niche.

Comparison between both of them

In all fairness these two drop shopping tools are great. They offer a lot of services at a moderately affordable price.

The interesting feature of niche scraper is that it gives you the leverage and opportunity to create videos brandishing your products. But with Ecumhunt you get videos containing product description.

While users can enjoy the free and pro mode plans they both have, I think Niche scraper slightly edges it with their annual plan offer. With the 60% discount rate, you enjoy a fat gain when compared to the usual monthly plan. Although, Ecumhunt monthly plan is cheaper (you can also choose to maximize your gain through this means).

Amidst their similarity, a few other subtle differences exist. This is derived from the experience of actively using both.

These two platforms boast of features that make Dropshipping less challenging than it could have been. You can examine which of them is more closely suited for the kind of products you deal with and the direction you might want to take to aid the growth of your Dropshipping business. However, the best way to know which suits you better is to try them both.

Whichever one you choose; you can be sure to get good value for it.

Each customer wants to get its product within 24hrs from check-out that why the place of fast shipping in dropshipping business or any eCommerce business is really very necessary.

Your customers want their products fast and you want the money to roll in fast too. Right?

In this post, I will be sharing with you how you can reduce Long Aliexpress standard shipping time. Where you can deliver your goods to your customers with 2 – 5 shipping days, also you will learn other alternatives to AliExpress shipping

first, Let me briefly respond to the common question asked by most of the people just in case you haven’t heard about it.

How Long Does Aliexpress Take To Ship?

AliExpress standard shipping time usually takes 15-45 days worldwide while a number of other countries take around 20-45 days.

This has made many people be afraid of starting an e-commerce business, but we will be doing justice to that in this article!

Let’s get started

How to reduce shipping time on aliexpress

Below are some different ways to get fast delivery on any products you ordered on Aliexpress to your customers.

1. Ship From United State On AliExpress Website

First of all, you need to understand that you can get fast delivery on the Aliexpress website. Furthermore, this can only work for those that are dropshipping to Europe and the US.

Most Aliexpress supplier has there warehouse both in China and many other oversea countries like in the US. Therefore, using them is going to be domestic shipping and equally a faster delivery system that takes only a few days to get to your customer.

To check it out, just go to the AliExpress search tab and enter the product you want to look for. From your result page, you will see a box with a “ship from“ as an option.

Aliexpress standard shipping

Click on the “drop-down button” that appears next to the search bar and choose the US if your customer is based in the US. This will show you a lot of sellers who has a warehouse in US and also can ship from the US.

Once you find the one that interests you, then proceed by checking the estimated delivery time because they differ from each other.

Aliexpress standard shipping

The downside is that the supplier usually increases the cost of the product a little bit (+$2 – $5) which is actually not bad. This you can still add to the product price and still makes a profit.

another disadvantage of this method to this is that there are fewer product choices because not all suppliers on AliExpress has a warehouse in the US. Therefore, the number of products you can find is going to be small.

Finally, as you know already it only works in the US and some European countries. So, this might not be the best option for you if you want to sell to some other countries in Asia and Africa.

2. ePacket Shipping Option

ePacket is a shipping alternative offered by Chinese suppliers. It enables sellers in China and Hong Kong to provide fast shipping and an affordable option for light goods.

With the aid of ePacket delivery, it takes about 7 – 10 days to deliver packages from China to any countries like US, Canada, Australia and some other European Countries. In case of African Countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Mali, Cameroon etc might not support ePacket delivery at the moment but merchant should expect a delivery time of 21- 35 and most of the time before 30days.

ePacket delivery allows customers to track, monitor and locate their product at no additional cost on websites such as USPS and EMS.

ePacket Requirments

The highest length of an item can only be 24’ 60cm. The total height, length and thickness shouldn’t exceed 36’ [90cm]

Besides that, the package can’t be more than $400 in price and should not weigh higher than 2 kg to be eligible for ePacket delivery.

As of May 2020, only 44 countries support ePacket deliveries which means you can drop ship to the following countries using ePacket service.

Austria
Australia
Brazil
Belgium
Croatia
Canada
Denmark
Estonia
France
Finland
Germany
Greece
Great Britain
Gibraltar
Hong Kong
Hungary

Vietnam
If you are targeting any of the above countries using ePacket delivery getting your products to your customers staying in this counties will be more faster and cheap.

This is mostly because all on average a package traveling to USA can take 7 – 10 business days to arrive from the date of shipment.

3. Spocket MarketPlace


Spocket is entirely different from AliExpress. A big marketplace for drop shippers to sourcing high quality and discounted products.

There are many products on Spocket at a very high discounted price ready to be sold on your Shopify store with fast shipping of between 2-5days deliveries.

None of the listed above is useful to me, what do I do?
Well, dropshipping with AliExpress Standard shipping time have over time brought about complaints with regards to delays and the delivery time

Although, It is worth noting that Aliexpress has improved in recent years and still improving their service by partnering with major local and international logistics companies.

But never worry, even with the below outline you can still work something out.

Dropshipping cheap products

Cheap product merit the wait. This is because products on Aliexpress come with free shipping and most customers are willing to wait for it.

You can get cheap products on Aliexpress and always be careful not to dropship bad/inferior products.

Dropshipping hot items

Your customer won’t mind the delivery time once your product is unique. This is why it’s very important to take time while choosing your products. Be sure the products you are dropshipping cannot be easily sourced for from the bricks and mortar traditional stores.

No Emergence products

The point of dropshipping business is to create an impulse purchase motivated by emotions and not dropshipping life-critical products.

If you are willing to dropshipping essential products like medicines which your customers have an urgent need for, then you should provide your own means of reaching your customer need and not through a supplier.

Once your customer knows they are not buying out of urgency or a burning desire but because they like your products. Then they can afford the wait.

Disclaimer Notice

This is very necessary when it comes to dropshipping with Aliexpress. Because most customers get agitated when they notice the products they purchase are getting longer to deliver.

This is totally going to be different when you write the shipping Disclaimer Notice making it very visible in your store for every of your customer see – and for your own safety too.

You can write on the product description that -Please Note: The average shipping time is 30-60 days and the buyer will know what to expect from their purchase.

Customer Support

Using your customer support to your own benefit can go a long way in your dropshipping business.

It is impossible not to have upset customers that will call and message when they think their item is missing.

But not to worry, you can patiently handle it in the following ways:

Include the shipping time once again when you send the confirmation email to your customers. It’s appropriate to remind them of the expected delivery period because not all of them will be attentive to read this in the product description. You can either do this manually or for your convenience, do it automatically with Alidropship Plugin. It will automatically notify your customers.

Again, immediately you receive the tracking code from your supplier, send the code to the buyer. Then explain how to use the information to know about the current location of the package. You can also install the Alidropship plugin to do this automatically.

Finally, make the refund policy very clear. This will increase your customer trust when the return policy is clearly stated on the product page. If it’s 30 – 45 days or 60 days, kindly explain that you will make 100% refunds if the product is not delivered within this period of time.

If this is clearly written, your buyers will only get their refund if the product did not reach its location on the 46th or 61st day!

Conclusion

Have your business registered in the US if it isn’t already. This will allow you to be able to use Stripe payment to process orders on your website.

Having it this way will allow you to sell directly to the US market irrespective of your country. I’ve written an article on how to register your business and use Stripe payment on your website.

Ecomhunt Review 2020: Is It Worth It?

Ecomhhunt review

It may sound mysterious to you that you can start a dropshipping business with $0 cost investment.

The profit does not consistently come moving or flying, so that is what we do not often here.

In this case, you need to do a lot of e-commerce (SEO), invest in social media marketing and after that, you are still not guaranteeing that your selected product is actually going to sell quickly.

I have seen a lot of people that started the dropshipping business and easily give up in time along the way.

Why is that, instead of making the profit they will end up paying countless recurring fees at the end of the month.

Well, actually you would not blame them because it is a simple business platform, so you either lose or win.

For instance, dropshipping is like a serious online business platform that could really get you some extra cash. But actually you need a detailed plan to make a dime.

You can see it yourself, gone are the days while it takes months to actually make a good profit while doing a dropshipping business.

As you can see, with the advent of fast searching tools-selling product, you can even start making your money back in the first week of beginning your dropshipping business.

Now, the good news is that searching tools for winning products cost a little or nothing could be afforded.

While the bad news is that more and more are coming up every day by day, so making it hard to select the right tool from the wrong one.

As a result of this, I have decided to pick-up a few things I normally used and check it.

How does EcomHunt Works?

Simply put this, EcomHunt can save you the stress for searching for hot and quick selling of products online. Instead, you can look into other things that normally matters a lot for your e-commerce business.

Reason Why People Fail With Dropshipping and eCommerce Businesses

Reason Why People Fail With Dropshipping

Despite the so many opportunities, if your Dropshipping business based on ecommerce is not going as planned, then the reasons might be from you: You might fix the price too high or You didn’t target the right audience. So, In this article, I will show you what and what you are doing wrongly and ways you can do it the right way.

ALSO READ: Is Dropshipping a Profitable & Money Making Business?

  1. Overestimating the Shipping time: Most times the shipping time may be more than estimated because of insufficient logistic company or insufficient financing for lower channels of distribution.
  2. Authenticity: Because you are new into the business buyers may be resistant to you and question your store authenticity.
  3. Lack of Patience & Persistence:
    Most Dropshippers think that dropshipping is a get rich quick scheme. They just don’t have the patience to start a dropshipping business. So, if you are not a patient type of person my advice is to start betting on sports instead because that’s only place you can earn instant money. Patience and persistence are key in the dropshipping business and also required any business. And, if you are just getting started with Dropshipping then it is necessary.
  4. Lack of Capital
    Though dropshipping doesn’t require a lot of Capital if you are just starting out for the first time then you need to keep a good budget in mind because in every business you need a capital to start. This is the price to pay for entry.
    Okay, Let’s say you are starting your first dropshipping store, you need to keep at least $100-$500 for marketing on different social media platforms. But, if you don’t have up to this even amount of capital then it is better not to venture into dropshipping until you have saved enough money.
  5. Product Quality: Another reason why dropshipping might not be working out for you might be because of the quality of your product. If your supplier supplies a less quality product to your buyers this will reduce the trust and lead to so many negative feedback for your business.
  6. High Prices of Dropshipping Products
    Most of the buyers that visit a dropshipping store will most likely search for the same product at different eCommerce store like amazon just to compare and contrast the prices.
    This is because customers always want to save money and they don’t want to feel cheated but always want to bargain, that why they go with a store that can easily give them a better deal. If they think they will get the same product at a lower price somewhere else, then they will leave the store.
    So, it is advisable to keep a lower price of the product below your competitor’s price while still staying profitable. You must learn how to balance both.
  7. Store Design Quality: If your dropshipping store looks cluttered and the design is unprofessional, it could have a major impact on the customer experience which might lead to distrust. Improper setup of dropshipping store is also a display of unprofessional behaviour between the buyer and you.
  8. Supplier Quality: A bad supplier can destroy one’s business. First, you need to find a good supplier using different supplier indexes provided by AliExpress like supplier review, Rating, years on AliExpress etc.
  9. Dropshipping is an open market which still has more opportunities for newcomers and it could be a good opportunity for you to start a dropshipping business. Just discover the trending product and the right audience to market the product.

Conclusion!

If you are new in dropshipping you need to understand that dropshipping is not just another ‘get rich quick scheme’ it is a full-time business that requires time, consistency, hard work, patience and dedication. Only then you will be able to thrive in this busines.
Also, as Jack Ma says, “learn from your failures.” So, when they fail (and most will) they need to learn from that and start again if they are really serious about it
