I'm getting the exact same message on the .co.uk site when trying to lift selling limits.

Guess they are changing something...sure it won't be good though!

I doubt that will change as using p/p gives them access to funds regardless of whether thay are available or not.

They get their fees from p/p regardless and then p/p come after your bank or cc for settlement as we all know.

Win win situation for e/b so they won't tinker with it.

I think it has to be a glitch. The first rule of ANY online business is to make it as easy as possible for your customers to pay you. If eBay would not accept payments from PayPal for their fees, it could mean lots of delinquencies.

Then again, this IS EBAY we are talking about, so who knows?

would be kind of ironic for ebay to in a round a bout way require paypal for us to get paid, but then not allow us to use paypal to pay them.

nothing with this company surprises me anymore tho

I got the same problem here
Trying to get a seller account, cannot choose paypal as autopayment method: (Sorry! We're currently experiencing technical difficulties and are unable to complete the process at this time.)

Start from 2-27 7:30pm, pacific time. Tried 3 times on 2-27 night, no luck. Tried again this morning, same thing. Called ebay to get help, no help at all. Just tried another time 10 min ago, same problem.

Any update?

Thank you guys!

For me it says:

"Error - Unable to process the request. Unexpected error occurred."

If they got rid of PayPal, there wouldn't be an error, there would be a message stating just that. Plus, they would have announced it as it would affect thousands if not millions of sellers. It's a technical error of the connection between eBay and PayPal. These things happen.

For me, it's happening on the step where it connects to arbd.ebay.com which is then supposed to redirect to PayPal. My guess it's that there's a technical problem at the server that processes that request step.

I can set-up the reimbursement method as PayPal without problems, just not the automated payment method. It's likely just a technical glitch. eBay pushing everyone to accept PayPal and then themselves not accepting PayPal wouldn't make sense.

I am using banks to verify my PayPal, then use PayPal as auto payment method to sell on eBay. So, if this situation continues, I cannot sell anything, right? Is there any other way to bypass this?
