eBay offers Vehicle Purchase Protection which ensures that buyers receive the vehicle they paid for, with coverage up to $20,000 (USD) against fraud or material misrepresentation.

Note: The seller does not choose this. It is offered by eBay.

On the eBay Motors US marketplace, when a GetItem call is issued, the following purchase protection information is returned:

  • If Vehicle Purchase Protection is available, PurchaseProtection = true
  • If Vehicle Purchase Protection is not available, PurchaseProtection = false

Other marketplaces that both support this feature and use Item Specifics for vehicles return similar information.
