Default EBAY NEW RULE.. Another hurdle

People who have sold before are grandfathered into the system. We don't have to even have Paypal accounts.

People who did not sell before the date that the new policy was announced (with zero grace period--the minute it was announced, it was effective) are required to have Paypal accounts in order to be able to sell. That includes any member who never sold before, even if they were around for 5 years.

The way I read the rule, I did not see it as saying that you had to USE the Paypal account, just that you needed to have one to sell.

"To keep eBay a safe place for both buyers and sellers, sellers who register after January 17, 2007 are required to offer either PayPal or a merchant account credit card as an accepted payment method for their items."

EBay introduces stupid rules like this all the time. This won't affect anyone I believe. It's just eBay's way of saying; only use our payment system, Paypal.

"""Pricing: A start price should aim to attract as many potential buyers as possible. Many sellers start their item low, (for example $0.99) and experience great results with a higher final sale price.

Payments: To keep eBay a safe place for both buyers and sellers, sellers who register after January 17, 2007 and want to sell internationally are required to offer PayPal as an accepted safe payment method for their items. eBay recommends PayPal, because it is a secure, fast, convenient and cost effective online payment method that allows you to accept all major credit cards, wire transfers, debit cards in one payment solution. You can also accept other forms of payment from your buyers (eg: Wire Transfer, Cash on Delivery).

Postage: Including all postage and packaging costs in the listing is highly recommended - buyers prefer to be aware of all costs prior to bidding. """

key here being international sales...ebay isn't forcing all sellers to be in the paypal system so long as they don't conduct international business...this problem for new sellers not being allowed to list is a new beast.

NEW accounts have to link in order to sell. they have to be paypal verified and in orer for ebay to know that you have to link your account. why don't you read ebay forum and find out for yourself. i talk to seasoned vets in ebay forum and they told me.

so please show the ebay policy that states that new ebay members must be paypal verified.

Its been stated you need to offer paypal or merchant account but have never seen anything saying you must be paypal verified to sell on your home site...yes if you want to sell on other ebay sites.

yeah just read through all of those as well as the paypal board...I find nothing there outside of them saying you have to offer paypal OR a merchant account.

I wouldn't imagine there'd be too much discussion from people that are getting suspended as new sellers b/c if they were getting suspended then how could they be on an ebay chat board. In any case I'm still not seeing what you're purporting...appreciate you trying to help though! Still searching for the answer on the newbies not being able to list.

Well a lot of sellers may not be earing over $500 dollars a week. If you are earning a lot of money a week say over $1000 and Paypal freezes it then yea, it's hell. Esp. if you need to pay your supplier and shipping, and all that stuff. Or, if you don't know any other way of payment and need to conduct business since you have all that inventory sitting there.

Maybe people who don't care to get frozen are just selling garage sale stuff, not actually conducting business.

I don't know, I think they are idiots.

I'm surprised that there isn't anyone pissed off enough at Paypal/Ebay to go to to their office and shoot someone or bomb the building!

okay, I just made another account (my third, and final backup backup) and yes, I have to offer PAYPAL or a MERCHANT account, for DOMESTIC buyers. If I want to sell internationally I have to have a PAYPAL account it seems.

Yes, it's been confirmed that when you open a new account you have to have a paypal or merchant account to sell. Although this requirement comes and goes for some reason. Probably chock it up to ebay's infamously bad servers. It's also been confirmed (at least according to chat reps pointing to cryptic pages on the matter) that if you sell worldwide, you have to link your account. This applies to all sites but oddly enough doesn't for some reason seem to apply to the U.S. even though they SAY it does. Anyone know why? I'm tempted to go ask at the ebay forums, but what would you say? LOL they'd probably report you! The subject of a "linked" account is a touchy one.
