Payment methods can vary on the listing, but an electronic payment method will be available in most categories. Electronic payment methods currently available include PayPal or a credit or debit card through the seller's Merchant Account. Payment upon pickup is an option for local pickup listings and some categories do allow for checks, money orders or bank transfers. Keep in mind that our eBay Money Back Guarantee can only cover transactions that occur through eBay checkout, and while alternative payment options may be allowed for certain items, we wouldn't have access to payments made outside of our platform.


We will begin payments intermediation on a small scale starting in the second half of 2018, expanding in 2019. In 2021, we expect to have transitioned a majority of customers to the new payments experience.
