eBay delays new policy

By on

eBay Australia has delayed its plans to force its customers to use its PayPal service, after the ACCC rejected its application for immunity.

Its plan to make it mandatory for local sellers to use PayPal or Cash on Delivery (COD) saw many users complaining, and as we reported, 700 people complained to the ACCC. The new plan would see the use of direct deposits, personal cheques and money orders to settle trades on the site.

While PayPal does allow payments by credit cards, you will not be able to transfer that money back to your bank account – as we know of.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
