If you want to sell on eBay but don't want to use PayPal to process payments? It is okay. Even though PayPal is the default payment method, you have alternatives. You can accept money orders and money orders for certain list categories, you can create your own merchant account, use Skrill or ProPay, or offer pay-as-you-go for any type of listing.
Skrill, formerly known as Moneybookers, is an online payment service that is accepted on eBay, Skype and other websites. First, register on [Skrill.com] (https://www.skrill.com/en-us/home/). When you sell an item on eBay, the buyer checks it against a form of payment, which is then processed and sent to your Skrill account.
ProPay is an alternative that is similar to PayPal. You must register at [ProPay.com] (http://www.propay.com/industry-solutions/eauction-ebay/). After the eBay buyer leaves, the payment is immediately sent to your ProPay account. Neither of these PayPal alternatives require buyers to register anything, and both provide eBay seller protection. However, like PayPal, eBay charges fees from sellers.
An alternative to signing up for Skrill or ProPay is to accept credit card payments to your Internet merchant account in person via eBay checkout. You must have an Internet merchant account - a bank account that allows you to accept credit or debit card payments online - and provide eBay with your payment gateway account.
Buyers pay using the ** Pay Now ** button, and payments are processed securely online from eBay checkout through your payment gateway. You will then receive a payment notification via email. While eBay does not charge a fee, consider the credit card processing fees charged by your merchant bank before choosing this option.
Ebay also allows direct payments, which is called pay-on-pick-up. The forms of payment at the time of collection include check, money order, cash, PayPal or credit card. As you write your list, decide which payment methods you want to accept. Be careful when accepting checks or money orders, because if it is unclear after the buyer has picked up the item, you have fewer options for resolving the problem than if you received cash or a credit card. Be careful when arranging face-to-face meetings. Take a friend and try to arrange meetings in a public place, not your home.
You can accept payments by personal check, cashier's check, bank transfer or money order "for certain eBay categories.", 3, [[This form of payment is limited to capital equipment, real estate, adults only, and some categories of motorbikes. For eBay Motors vehicle transactions, you can use [Escrow.com] (https://www.escrow.com/), an eBay-approved escrow service. Remember, never accept payment for more from the buyer, especially if the buyer asks for a replacement. This is likely part of a fake cashier's check scheme. Also, you can't ask buyers to pay using a method that you didn't include in your listing.
