Hi, i am new to ebay. I did a transaction and entered my credit card details. However, when it was going through skrill, i saw a "transaction not allowed" message. I am confused and would appreciate if anyone can help resolve this? Seems silly that the payment system doesnt quite work in ebay. Never had a problem with other online transaction. Thanks

I had this happen to me, the first(and only) time I used Skrill to pay for an item. This was the only payment that the Seller would allow, so before I bid (and won) the item, I researched Skrill to find out what I could about it. When I tried to pay, I got the message you got... so, I tried one of my other credit cards, and the payment went through.
Turns out, it was a "safety" feature used on my first credit card; they block out-of-the-country transactions unless you have contacted them first to okay them!

And you'll find that most transactions on this eBay site (USA) require paypal.
