No Checks and Money orders on eBay

I think this month is all about changes to the networks first of all I posted that how has changed their network name, there are few others too and now its turn for eBay to have a change.

eBay Changes
The change eBay has done is because of the security reasons as they claimed. The recent change to the FAQ section announced that there have been policy changes. eBay declared that the only acceptable payment methods on purchasing are the following:

  • PayPal
  • Credit or debit card payment to seller
  • ProPay, or
  • Payment upon pickup

No checks and money orders allowed. This has been done to provide more secure buying experience for buyer and seller too.

Also, there are some exceptions to the current policy and basically it is that products like automobile, heavy machinery, real estate, and mature audiences items will be excluded from this policy.

I don’t think that anyone who is serious in buying on ebay will have any issue with this new payment policy. Moreover, I think that sellers will be happy as they are receiving cash faster through these payment methods.

Also, I hope that this new payment method will help in decreasing spam and unauthorized selling activity too.
