Accepted Payments Policy

eBay wants to ensure that the marketplace offers buyers an array of safe, appropriate, and convenient payment choices for the marketplace. As described in our safe buying guide, eBay strongly encourages sellers to offer payments through PayPal – PayPal is not only convenient to use, but it also offers buyers and sellers industry leading protection against fraud, chargebacks and theft of financial data. Merchants with their own merchant credit card processing account, and those who use a third-party credit card processor, may also offer their buyers the option of paying directly with a credit card online (including through third party checkout) or by phone.

From time to time, as new payment services arise, eBay will evaluate them to determine whether they are appropriate for the marketplace. Payment services that are not permitted on eBay may, in fact, be outstanding services for consumers in other contexts. eBay’s evaluation relates only to whether a particular service is appropriate for the eBay marketplace. eBay will consider the following factors, among others, in making its determination:


      Whether the payment model offers substantial financial, privacy and anti-fraud protection for buyers and sellers

      Whether the payment model raises the potential for confusion among eBay users, or involves incentives that may present fraud concerns

      Whether the payment model involves precious metals, or other non-cash (points, miles, minutes, coupons, discounts) as consideration

      Whether the payment service has a substantial historical track record of providing safe and reliable financial and/or banking related services (new services without such a track record generally cannot be promoted on eBay)

      The identity, background and other business interests of the payment service sponsor

      The license/regulatory status of the payment provider in the countries where it provides payment services  

Offline payment methods generally do not offer the same level of protection or convenience as online payments. Nonetheless, they may be appropriate for certain types of transactions and sellers may use listings to offer acceptance of most valid financial instruments including personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders or COD.

Permitted on Sellers may offer to accept PayPal, credit cards including MasterCard/Visa /Amex/Discover, debit cards and bank electronic payments online for eBay purchases. Sellers may also offer to accept bank-to-bank transfers, often known as bank wire transfers or bank cash transfers. Sellers may accept COD (cash on delivery) or cash for in person transactions. Sellers may offer to accept personal checks, money orders, cashier's checks, certified checks and other negotiable instruments. Please see the "Some Examples" section of this policy for those evaluated payment services permitted in the eBay marketplace.

Not permitted on Sellers may not solicit buyers to mail cash. Sellers may not ask buyers to send cash through instant cash transfer services (non-bank, point-to-point cash transfers) such as Western Union or Moneygram. Sellers may not solicit payment through "topping off" of a seller's pre-paid credit or debit card. Finally, sellers may not request payment through online payment methods not specifically permitted in this policy. Please see the "Some Examples" section of this policy for those evaluated payment services not permitted in the eBay marketplace.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions including:


      Listing cancellation

      Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

      Listing cancellation

      Limits on account privileges

      Loss of PowerSeller status

      Account suspension

What are the Acceptable Alternatives to Payapl?

If you want to start a business then get registered where you live and get a merchant account and gateway service to process credit and debit cards.
People respect businesses much more than Paypal because they know you are a legitimate business and have to adhere to the law.

Sellers may offer to accept:

    *PayPal, merchant credit cards (including MasterCard, Visa, Amex, Discover® Network), debit cards, and bank electronic payments for eBay purchases.
    *Bank-to-bank transfers, often known as bank wire transfers or bank cash transfers.
    *Cash on Delivery (COD) or cash for in-person transactions.
    *Personal checks, money orders, cashier's checks, certified checks, and other negotiable instruments.

You can use this on eBay because RevolutionMoneyExchange is a BANK WITH A BANKING CHARTER
First Bank & Trust, Brookings, SD

This is the best service on the internet for simple payments.

Number one this is a bank fully FDIC insured not like Paypal. This system is regulated by the US government and therefore much safer and secure. If you risk entering your information into Paypal you are putting yourself at risk. Paypal uses employees in foreign countries that have no extradition treaties with the US and give them access to your financial details, if they abuse this power there is no repercussions the US has no jurisdiction. So Why in the world would you use Paypal. It isn’t safe, it isn’t a bank, they don’t have to follow banking laws, they have no banking charter, and you think they are a good company simply because everyone else uses it. That is a Lemmings solution. Use a bank with a banking charter that is under US laws and is backed by the FDIC.

The solution is very simple, I sent you an invitation for signing up with RevolutionaryMoneyExchange

About the Company:

This was developed by Steven Case founder of AOL and is a brand new system from Nov. 2007

Please do some research on it and read who is behind this new service it is quite amazing.

Read the Yahoo article here:

and then also read the USA Today Article:

Its a new concept to compete with Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover. The Revolution Card is in Barne’s and Noble since Nov. 2007 There is 150,000 merchants now using it.

What do you have to loose?
Nothing you’ll make $25 and you can spend that at my online store. Don’t be an idiot and don’t get scared. All banks ask for your SS number & ID, that is what happens when you deal with a bank under a banking charter. Go to any bank and apply you’ll be asked for the same things. Be Smart, Be Protected, Be Safe Online, Use US Companies, Get American Customer Support, And Stop Being An Idiot. Be A Proud American Individual.
