I'm through with eBay [View all]

I'm a 10+ year seller with a 100% feedback rating.

About three months ago, paypal started to hold all payments for 21 days before posting to my account. This was no big deal. I could live with that.

About six months ago, it was strongly suggested to stop charge for shipping and to offer the service for free. To make up for the shipping charges, just increase the minimum price. Of course eBay now get a commission on the shipping charges. This was no big deal. I could live with that.

On Friday, I get a message from eBay that they want a credit card on file to give refunds to dissatisfied buyers. That's why they are holding the PP payments for.

Message from rBay:

Attention Sellers:

Please place a reimbursement payment method on file

We show that you don't have a reimbursement payment method (credit card) on file with us. Sellers must have a reimbursement payment method on file to pay for claims under eBay's Buyer Protection Policy. We'll need you to provide this information today to continue listing your items on eBay.

eBay's Buyer Protection Policy generally covers buyers for most purchases on eBay. If eBay has refunded the buyer for claims covered under the eBay Buyer Protection Policy, we'll charge the amount due to eBay using the automatic method you select. The eBay Buyer Protection Policy is subject to change and we'll charge you in accordance with the Policy as it existed on the date of the transaction at issue. eBay may charge the payment method you select on a one-time, sporadic, or recurring basis. You can always change your selected payment method in My eBay or cancel your automatic payment method by contacting us. Learn more about what eBay's Buyer Protection Policy means for sellers.

It's quick and easy to do. Click here to open a new window and select your reimbursement payment method. Once you're done, you'll be able to review and submit your listing.


That's it. I've had it.
