eBay payments change

Post by jayums »

I don't know how the changes are rolling out (I gather private sellers had this earlier?) but I now gave the option for eBay funds go straight into my bank rather than PayPal

Apparently it takes longer for funds to clear , and cost the same or less than using PayPal (not convinced!)

Any thoughts on whether it's best to stick with PP or just used eBay ?

Not sure you wil have the option to use paypal soon and the charges will certainly be higher than the direct payment.

This link is helpfull.

eBay will take 12.8% + 30p instead of the previous 10%. On the plus side there will be no PayPal fees which were previously 2.9% + 30p.

I think it works out well if you wait for the max £1 selling fee. Then you are actually going away with any PayPal costs and only get charged £1 max for selling the item whatever the final value :D

Yep that makes sense . Sounds like it's well worth waiting for the £1 fee offers.

I thought it was just a blanket offer, didn’t realise it was done individually. I was getting them offered every two weeks until 4 weeks ago.

I’m not sure...I seem to be getting the offer every other week at present.
I am selling a fair bit, maybe it’s because I’m looking for the email with the offer more than previously?

You’ve got me thinking now, lol I’m sure max £1 selling fee hasn’t been offered to me for 4 weeks. I’m also thinking it’s advertised before I sign in some times. I did think it was every 2 weeks though.

Totally unimpressed by this new sustem :!: I had to wait 4 -5 days to actually b paid ie to see the funds in my account :!: They bloody well took their fees double pronto though :!: I actually contacted eBay and their response was they cannot take the risks PayPal took but they r working on improving things. :roll:
Looking for mint sealed or unused Palitoy Empire.
