Default PayPal is a Dead End, will result in EBAY suspension - Some alternatives

EDITOR'S NOTE: ACCEPTING PAYPAL RESULTS AT A MINIMUM IN A DOUBLE SCRUTINY OF YOUR EBAY ACCOUNT - BY BOTH PAYPAL AND EBAY. IT IS ALSO BECOMING INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO CREATE A LASTING PAYPAL ACCOUNT THESE DAYS WITHOUT PROVIDING A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, AVOID PAYPAL.

---

u guys stated in your methods to open a new ebay account is just to change ur paypal email address and not link them together.

Well what if my paypal was linked to my old ebay account? does just changing my email address on it unlink it?

LOL we told you all not to use paypal anymore or you'll be linked. It doesnt and will not work anymore point blank...

The guide is outdated but aspkin is updating it. Basically Paypal is out or you will be suspended and linked

who is going to buy off you if you don't accept paypal?

can't we just open a new paypal account with a gift card and ⊗⊗⊗⊗ address? and then when we have money in that account from payments recieved, just send the money to yourself (on a legitimate paypal account) and withdraw from there? ok you will lose a few $$ paypal fees for recieving a large amount of money , but who cares..

thanks... there's something I'm not too clear about though. How do you incorporate those type of payments into your ebay auction? is there any threads in this forum that tells you how to do it? I can't seem to find any..
I guess you just have the send the buyer an invoice as soon as the auction ends?

But for each auction you only need one, right?

How do you tell people on your auction what payments you take? do you put your own banners..etc..? am I allowed to see what your auctions look like? or is that too much to ask. or anyones, I don’t mind..
I just listed something on ebay and for ‘methods of payments accepted’ I just ticked “credit card”. Is that it? and then when the auction ends, I send an invoice through the merchant/google thing?

well when an auction ends the buyer can pay directly through ebay checkout. you probably have seen the kind before. alot of powersellers checkout is set up that way.

So all they do is click the pay button, and it takes them to another checkout screen, then they enter their credit card info and bam, thats it.

My merchant account is integrated with Ebay checkout

Props please

I'm trying to do this but I can't for the life of me figure out how and where it's done.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to write alll that for me. I will look into it.
It sounds a bit complicated but i'm sure I'll get my head around it eventually. I have just one more option that I want to run by you guys. Please don’t jump down my throat if it is a stupid question!!!

So, if I list items, and I untick the “accept paypal” button, but in my auction I say that I do accept paypal, can I just wait for the auction to end and then send an INVOICE THROUGH PAYPAL and NOT ebay? Is that safe? I can just put a note at the bottom of my auctions saying “Please wait for me to send you an invoice at the end of the auction”

Would this be ok? I only tend to sell between 20-30 items a week for the time being, so I don’t mind doing this.

For a small fee I can intergate your merchant account into the Ebay Checkout system

I was wondering how your customers react to this. Are they more than happy to do this, or do they ask what's going on? Ever had any problems?

Do you write it in your auctions that you don't take paypal and that you use other methods of payment? do the bidders know in advanced t?

thanks!
