On eBay the seller of the item that you are purchasing needs to accept your payment method in order to proceed with the deal. Most eCommerce sellers accept PayPal because it transfers funds immediately and the seller can ship your item right away instead of waiting for funds to clear. Therefore you can easily create your self a free PayPal account for your self and there will be no issues.

But if you do not wish to open PayPal account, you can try out the following payment options,

Bill Me Later
Credit cards and debit cards
Skrill
Paymate
ProPay
Pay upon pickup
Escrow
Other payment methods

There are a number of ways to pay on eBay. Most sellers offer more than one option. Some payment options offer more protection than others, so be sure to select a method of payment that makes you feel comfortable.

If you have additional questions about payment options, you can contact the seller directly. You can find the seller's email address by clicking on the User ID in the listing or by looking in the End of Listing email that you received when the listing closed.

Sellers may not ask or require you to pay by instant cash wire transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. They may not ask you to pay by cash. These payment methods are not permitted on eBay. Please refer to the Accepted Payments policy for details on permitted and non-permitted payment methods. 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. If a seller asks you to pay with a payment method that is not permitted on eBay, report the seller.

Clicking the Pay Now button is the fastest way to pay on eBay. Common payment methods available using the Pay Now button include:

  • PayPal
  • Credit Card
  • Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders
The seller may accept other types of payment methods involving escrow companies (recommended for high-price items) and bank-to-bank wire transfers. More information on each method of payment is provided below:

How do I use my gift card?


You can pay for eBay items with e-gift certificates, gift cards, and coupons. You need to have eBay and PayPal accounts, but if you don't, you'll be given the opportunity to register on eBay and sign up for a PayPal account when you purchase an item.

To redeem an e-gift certificate, gift card, or coupon, you'll need to log into your PayPal account when you purchase the item. If you don't have an account, you'll be given an opportunity to sign up.
To use an e-gift certificate, gift card, or coupon:

  1. Click the Pay now button.
  2. If the seller offers more than one shipping option, select the one you want.
  3. Enter the redemption code in the Redeem a Gift Card, certificate, or coupon field.
    Tip: If you received your redemption code online, it's easier to copy and paste it into the redemption code field instead of typing it.
  4. Click the Apply button to see your new order total, and then click the Continue button.
  5. On the next page, log in to your PayPal account.
  6. Select a PayPal payment method, and then click the Continue button.
  7. Check your order details, and then click the Confirm payment button.

Tip

How come i can't use the buy it now in my ebay item?


first, you need to check the following requirements if you are a first time seller with zero Feedback

1. You need to have 10 Feedback or more.
2. You need to have 5 Feedback and offer PayPal as your preferred payment method.
3. Or if you will become Id Verified.

ID Verify is a process wherein you will need to verify your identity through Equifax. If you become ID verified, you won't need to have any payment method on file to be able to sell. You will automatically have a seller account. You will also be to use the buy it now or fixed price listing format.

Here's how to become ID Verified:

Have your credit information ready. The credit card information will not be stored in your eBay account, it is only for the information (it should be the same in your bank statement).

1. Go to the ID Verify page and then click the “Sign up now” link.

2. Read and accept the terms. Agree to pay a $5.00 application fee.

3. Review your eBay contact information on the Verify Account Information page, and update if necessary.

4. Answer the verification questions to confirm your identity.

Here's the link that you can use:

Send the customer an email from your ebay account and save a copy for yourself. Tell him that the payment he sent did not go into the right paypal account. Ask him to cancel this payment so that paypal refunds his money. Tell him that you will send an invoice to him from paypal with a request for payment. Ask him not to re-send his payment until he receives that invoice request from your account. Then go into your paypal account and click on the request money link. Choose the option to send an invoice and enter the information for your EBAY account if you have not already done so. Then send an invoice to that person requesting payment with a note that says the same thing in your email from EABY - tell him to cancel the other payment because it went to the wrong account and ask him to use this account instead. Tell him you have already waited two days and that he only has 1 -2 days more to pay for this item or you send a bidding strike for non payment.

I have a suspended ebay account. I paid 18.19 that was due on Nov. 17th. I thought that was the problem. It remains suspended and I have no idea why? Ca you assist me?


Hi there!

With regard to the suspension in your account, if it's about billing it could be that your account's being charged off.
A charge off means eBay has recognized your balance as debt to eBay for accounting purposes. Keep in mind that you still owe this amount to eBay. Additionally, eBay reserve the right to pursue collections efforts, including use of a collection agency.

To avoid further collections efforts and to remove the suspension,I recommend that you need to pay for the fees. eBay will reinstate your account as soon as eBay receive payment for this amount.
Here's what to do:
-- Check your invoice
To see the overdue balance and a breakdown of the fees you've been charged, follow these steps:
1. Go to My eBay. You may be asked to sign in.
2. Click the "Account" tab.
3. Click the "All account activity" link under your current balance.
You'll see a summary of your latest invoice and a list of fees, credits and payments from the last 4 months. To see a previous invoice, select the one you want from the "Invoices" drop-down menu on the right side of the page.
-- Make a payment
eBay accept payment by PayPal, direct debit, credit card, check, or money order.
Here's how to make a one-time payment:
1. Go to My eBay. You may need to sign in.
2. Click the "Account" tab.
3. Under "Payment methods for Seller Fees," click the "one-time payment" link.
4. Follow the instructions to complete your payment.
How long will it take for your payment to go through?
-- One-time credit card and direct debit payments post immediately to your account.
-- PayPal payments take approximately 5 business days to post.
-- Checks take approximately 7-10 business days to post.
To learn more about paying your eBay seller fees, go to:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/pay-fees.html
Once your payment has been posted, your account will be reinstated automatically, and you'll be able to start selling on eBay again immediately.
I hope I've explained this clearly. If you have any problems please add a note here or you can send another concern.

I hope this helps. Please rate if it does!

Ebay is sending my paypal money to somone else


Hi there!
If you are the seller please check the PayPal email address you have in the listing that you posted. you can do this by clicking the sell similar link in the item page then check the section to where you need to add the PayPal address.
If it's not correct, you can contact the buyer and ask the buyer to cancel the payment and then you can send a manual paypal invoice, you need to ask the buyer for his/her paypal email address.
If you are the buyer, check with eBay to why they are sending your payment to another member.
