Re: eBay payments change

Post by jedi_masters »

Been using the new eBay payment system for a couple of weeks now.

Overall I do find it easier than having to make sure ive kept the money aside to pay my monthly ebay invoice.

Couple of downsides.

For alot of my sales I have been slightly worse off than if I was paid the old way. Its only pennies so not gonna cry over it. Like it has been said above, if you can make use of the max £1 selling fee offer then its great. I sold a lego set for £120 using the offer so £130 with postage, paid £1. Great.

The payment can be very slow to get into your bank. Especially if you sell an item on a Friday, I haven't been getting the payment until Tueaday or Wednesday. This is rubbish considering as soon as your paid ebay expect you to post the item but you haven't received the postage yet.

Overall, I think the system is better and easier, I just hope they don't up the % over time.

Indeed! Although with the competition maybe PayPal might lower their fees . Fingers crossed!

Thanks Grant, it's been a while I know. Gonna make an effort this year to get back involved with the community. Collecting is still out the window but miss the friendships.
