Late in October, eBay is making a change in what payment methods a seller may request in their listing.
However, if a buyer requests to pay via money order or check, a seller may choose to accept that payment method.
So if you prefer to pay via money order or check, please feel free to ask your seller if they will accept that method of payment. Be sure to ask the seller, before bidding or buying instead of after, if they will accept a check or money order for payment.
Since it will be the sellers choice as to whether or not to accept money orders or check or other non Paypal methods of payment, please don't assume that they will accept such methods without asking.
