Ebay likes to control your money by keeping it from you for up to 21 days with a hold it can place on your paypal funds. Thousands of sellers are upset with this, and rightly so, and there is a growing movement against this possibly/probably illegal policy. Many sellers are contacting state regulators in the states wherein they reside, many are contacting their Attorneys General, many are contacting the Federal Trade Commission about it. And many are leaving ebay and setting up shop at other online selling sites.

Ebay requires you to use Paypal...you can take a check or money order or cash, but you can't state that in the advertisement...you have to state that you take paypal...
It's a big pain in the rear, but it's ebay's ball game...

I use Turbo lister and I want to create an auction for a high dollar item, but don't want to use Paypal because of the high fees.
Turbo lister offers an option for checks & Money orders, but when I try to do it , it insists that I have to have my PAYPAL info in their as well or I cant go forward with the AD.
How do I get around using Paypal? Cant I accept other forms of payment?
Thanks to all of you who take the time to reply.
