I made an eBay
purchase this morning and encountered an entirely new interface for Payment. eBay
opened a separate window asking me for payment method include credit card, PayPal or Paypal credit.
Selected the PayPal option, went through the usual steps.
But my PayPal receipt now lists eBay
as the Merchant rather than listing a Seller with an eBay
ID. It also makes no reference to the item purchased. Only an amount paid to eBay
This is different from a purchase made yesterday.
Looking at my credit card transaction used for payment, all that is now shown there is " eBay
" where as before I had an entry showing eBay
seller name". This makes the PayPal transaction receipt relatively useless in keeping track of payments for purchases, and helping with reconciliation of eBay
purchases on the card statement. Who wants to look at a series of " eBay
Phone calls to both eBay
and PayPal advise that this is a new feature by eBay
to enhance our buying experience, and PayPal only gets the " eBay
" identifier as the merchant. I know that eBay
wants to own the world and has been moving sellers away from PayPal to their payment system.
Has anyone been using the eBay
direct payment system for purchases, and can you offer some of your experience.
