Default eBay and Paypal Separating?????!!!!!

When I logged into my Paypal account today there was a message stating that soon eBay and Paypal will be separate companies. What does this mean???? Is this a good or bad thing?

Sharing info can break all sorts of privacy rules but I believe the user agreements of both companies that people have to accept contain clauses that allow them to do this.

Their policies have changed because of the separation, though.

I wonder if bay will have other options for buyers to use for payment vs just pp, meaning we have other options instead of just pp.

I guess time will tell depending how much money is lost and made during their split

there's probably a crap load of buyers that are now freaking out, since the change in policy blah blah blah are targeted towards buyers. We all know eBay will change the rules anytime they want when they are losing money

it would be nice if they gave back sellers the option to leave negative feedback for scrubby buyers. Fair game..yeah right

This is old news that has been known for months. Nothing will change, they will still share the same info between each other, etc. If anyone bothered to read the updates, it says right there on the first page:

Quote:
An update to our customers

eBay and PayPal will be separate companies soon, which means we won't be part of the same group of companies anymore. You can be confident this doesn't change our commitment to our customers. We're more excited than ever to bring you a seamless and enjoyable experience.

You can keep using PayPal on eBay just like you do today; that won't change. Your purchases are still protected through our buyer protection programs.

We'll also continue to share some customer information between eBay and PayPal to provide you the same level of customer support and fraud detection you get today.

We've updated our user agreements and privacy policies to describe how we'll protect and share your information. For example, eBay and PayPal will work together to:

Detect potential fraud and protect your account
Provide you customer support
Process payments, and offer shipping and related services

I read some of the new terms, and they will still share information saying its to protect against fraud

So no one will notice anything different, they are going to,operate the same way in terms of sharing, they probably just needed to word things differently for legal reasons

It gives Paypal a chance to really gain investor money on it's fantastic expansion/profits over the years without Ebay's LACK of growth/profits holding investors back.

everything is same, just for investors the stock is separated to paypal and ebay stocks. and they have to make separate user agreements for it be official.

but the separation (just like the mayweather pac fight) is about 5 years too late. dont think it'll help the stocks much
