Haven’t seen much online on this other than the below article I found:
Ebay is making a MASSIVE change to seller fees and payment will take longer

I’ve used eBay for years, typically not very often. I usually keep a few things listed at a time BIN that I would have a harder time selling on a Forum or local listings.

Lately they have been hounding me to to update my account details both via email and through the App, and it finally suspended my ability to post new listings until I comply with the ‘new way to get paid.”

Went through the App and updated my name address and phone number. Next for payment details it now wants my bank account and social security number to manage payments.

This seems a lot more invasive than it should be, which is why I’m surprised I haven’t seen much noise about it online. My guess for the TIN is for Uncle Sam to recognize their cut down the line.

Has anyone else run into this? I am likely going to pass on listing stuff going forward and just won’t complete the “account update”.

This is old news.
Yes it does suck though. You can still get your payments sent daily, not much more of a delay then before. I kinda like that they removed the PayPal equation from everything.

I sell a ton of shit on ebay and just went through this. I listed two items last week and I was able to list one without signing up for the new payment method but it would not list the second item unless I went through this.

This pisses off sellers but will piss off buyers, too. It takes three days for funds to transfer and I am not going to ship anything until I see the funds in my account. The person that bought my item was hounding me as to when it would ship but that is his problem not mine.

There’s no way I’d give any of that info to eBay. I still buy stuff off of eBay sometimes since I don’t like Amazon, but that might have to change.

I agree with the concern here - no way I was giving them my info. I took my stuff off of eBay and plan to move on.

I can imagine your buyer would be upset because you ship late, especially when he finds more expedient ways to buy anal bleach.

Apparently TX weather has caused a run on the bank. The are hoarding it in Houston a la toilet paper in March.

I guess will see more trader ratings going down.

I went to the grocery today and the shelves were almost cleaned out. These people are dumb.

in reference to the eBay deal, I’m bidding on something as we speak. So it’s going to take longer to ship because my payment will be delayed? I’ve bought on eBay for years and this is the first I am hearing of all this.

Payments do not take longer. From experience going right to my bank takes as long as it did going from PP to my bank account.

unless the seller is willing to ship before getting paid. PayPal was instant, it is now credit card settled and takes 3 business days. Maybe there are different set ups but that is what it was for me.

They have been pestering me about this for the last month. I believe the deadline is sometime in March but they made me do it last week.

That’s not a huge issue for me I guess. eBay is mainly for novelty type stuff. Anything significant and typically it’s amazon or some other online source

I'd like to know if there is an alternative to ebay and amazon for buyers and sellers.
