Because you are a valued seller we'd like to let you know about some changes to eBay.com.au that are going to make our marketplace an even safer place for you to buy and sell.
These changes will be introduced in two stages:
From 21 May you must offer PayPal on all your listings as well as currently permitted payment methods.
From 17 June you will only be able to offer PayPal on your listings and pay on pick up (i.e.paid for when picking up the item).
Pay on pick up can only be offered in conjunction with PayPal. No other payment methods will be permitted.
A small number of exclusions will apply to these changes.
When paypal can overturn near anything, at any time, for near any reason?
And screw you for fees all the times you do use it?
Right now a huge % of oz sales are done via bank transfer, which is free to both users. Once THAT is done THAT is SAFE. You get your money and ebay cannot touch it, no matter what.
PayPal is not safe from any kind of arbitrary claim of non receipt, damage, or a myriad of other nonsense claims they permit.
Is this just an oz policy - or global?
If global, ebay will slide back ever further, what with the increased fees recently, and this new Shill Bidder Heaven policy, superb for all conmen sellers, of now masking all bidders.
