Stop eBay from Introducing a PayPal only payment policy

We the undersigned voice our disapproval at eBay Australia's new policy stating that ONLY PayPal can be used as a payment option from June 17th onwards. This policy is far too strict, and will limit the amount of people willing to participate in eBay transactions. As a result, online sellers will lose business, and people will find it harder to access the savings offered by eBay sellers.

As PayPal is owned by eBay, it appears that eBay Australia is making this decision purely to generate more profits, and it does not have the best interests of its users at heart.

Claims of PayPal being the most secure way to pay for auctions are not necessarily true, and are deceptive in nature. We note that other international eBay sites have not enforced such strict payment rules.

As sellers and buyers, we strongly urge eBay Australia to re-think their decision to remove direct deposit, money orders and cheques as payment options.
