Killed by Ebay, I think it'll happen soon in a matter of months... unless people go out there and stop it. Maybe the courts in the UK can make eBay separate from paypal as a monopoly.

March 25th is a black day

On a VERY SMALL plus if you have over 100fb you can continue not to offer PayPal for 1 month more...

Slowly this sick company is taking over...

Its worth a try, Offer it but state in your listing you will be taking something else.

I have ebayhateluv, but they require a US bank account.
I really should sign up for one, do you think it's possible in the UK? I'm beginning to think sooner or later, the only success on ebay in a competitive market is to accept paypal.

mantis, I once read a website offering Swiss bank accounts and they required you to make a plane flight to Switzerland. But if you can keep the same bank account and then use the CCNOW on unlimited ebay accounts it'll be good.

Well, I emailed CCNOW, and I guess I could just choose to receive payment by check. They said they are "standard company checks", and I'd need to ask at my bank if they would be compatible.

But I've rather gone off the idea of opening a US bank account, seems that it would seem to dodgey.

If the check works, then I'm set

Interesting if they are testing waters by requesting this only in the UK for now before it starts worldwide or is it just because UK Merchant accounts are not as "safe", from their points of view, comparing to the Merchant accounts in the US. What about other countries? Do they have to offer Paypal there too?

I'd say merchant accounts were pretty safe here, why wouldn't they be? Only difference I can see is that US merchants may require a SS#

I don't know about US vs. UK merchant accounts being more safe. If eBay cared about safety they would ban PayPal for being unsafe.

UK is a testing ground for eBay, what usually happens there will eventually happen in the US. The good thing for US is you can easily setup Paypal accounts with a virtual bank account and prepaid gift-cards. We'll just have to take extra care not to link accounts.

It's unfortunate that none of the stuff tested in the UK get thrown out and all their bad ideas come to the rest of the world soon after. I wonder if anyone understands why I have this avatar it means that one day ebay will ruin its site so much it's not worth it to sell there.

I still think adding in as many requirements for gaypal payment as possible is good. Here's some stuff: no po box, no apos, domestic only and no US territories, confirmed address, verified paypal account, confirmed paypal address must match ebay address exactly, must sign for package, must print out and fax/mail you a statement saying you agree to the auction listing's terms (which might help if they make a dispute well you have them actually signing your terms), and those are all I've come up with now. The last one sounds really good as it is sure to annoy people -- and as long as ebay allows it and you say "it's to protect from fraudulent paypal disputes" then it's good.

Something as to be done with eBay, they really are a $hit company! They pretend to help cops yet the amount of bull$hit they do is unreal and the funny thing about it is they get away with it and people believe them!
Why isnt there another service out there? ebid is pathetic, qxl is dead and google auctions isnt here yet.
eBay vanished from China because they cant compete with Taobao and they left Japan in 2002, so Im sure that something can make them suffer in the UK!
I do agree UK does seem to be there testing ground.

We need auction site which can really hurt eBay where it hits them hard! And then they will play down there "Paypal only rules" and the rest of the crap they talk about.

I guess its one way to get the buyers to pay by other means, then you could limit the amount of profit crapbay & poopal make out you.

What we sellers and ex-sellers need to do is all get together and start our own corporation and website. If millions of us join together making the world's first and largest users formed corporation and website, those monsters will get wipe off face of this earth in a flash. All it takes is someone or a group to get it started, then one thing leads to another, don't say it won't happen. One day ....
