Our accepted payments policy gives buyers and sellers on eBay convenient payment options. To help ensure a safe marketplace, as a seller you can only use our approved payment methods. You also must state in your listing which specific payment methods you accept. If you accept a payment method, don't place limitations on what forms of it you accept.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Credit card or debit card processed through the seller's Internet merchant account
Your payment is safe and secure. You can choose to save your card to your eBay account. Remove a saved card at any time by going to My eBay > Account > Personal information.
Payment upon pickup
If you offer payment upon pickup, you'll also need to offer one of the approved electronic methods, and may include this statement in your listing: "Contact me for payment methods to pay on pickup".
Bank-to-bank transfers (also known as bank wire transfers and bank cash transfers)
Any payments that occur outside of eBay pages are not allowed, except in certain listing categories. See the full list of categories that allow bank-to-bank transfers, cheques, money orders, and the permitted online payment services.
Sending cash through the mail
Sending cash or money orders through instant, point-to-point cash transfer services (that are not banks) such as Western Union or MoneyGram
Mailing cheques or money orders (except for items in categories specifically permitted)
Paying through bank-to-bank transfers (except for items in categories specifically permitted below)
Paying by "topping off" a seller's prepaid credit or debit card
Paying using online or other payment methods not specifically permitted in this policy
Asking buyers to contact them for additional payment methods, or including misleading or unclear payment information
Offering a payment method to some buyers and not to others
Discouraging buyers from using any payment method the seller specified in the listing
Discouraging buyers from using eBay's accepted payment methods
Asking buyers to pay using a method not mentioned in the listing.
Paying with Virtual or Cryptocurrencies
Placing limitations on payment methods you accept. For example:
"I accept PayPal but do not accept credit card payments through PayPal"
"I only accept PayPal if the bid amount is greater than $15"
These rules apply to all transaction-related correspondence between a seller and buyer, as well as to the listings.
In addition, you aren't allowed to make statements such as:
"Contact us for payment information."
"Contact us for other payment methods."
"Contact us for your preferred payment method."
