News-Antique.com - Sep 09,2008 - David Brady began as most people do, needing a new outlet to move his merchandise. Brady found eBay to be a great website to “Bring the customers to him”. Now after over 10 years as a seller, eBay says that the seven (7) forms of payment he accepts are no longer allowed after Oct 1st . Ebay is implementing a new “Paperless Payment Policy” that will not allow Buyers to use Money Orders, Cashier’s Checks, Personal Checks, Non Internet Based Credit Cards or Cash to pay for any transactions made on the website.
Brady’s store, Columbus Armory, sells a wide variety of military goods to Soldiers and civilians alike and has always prided itself on allowing customers to use various means of payment in the store, but says eBay has gone way too far in dictating what method of payment can be taken. Brady says his “100 percent positive feedback from customers speaks for its self”.
“How can they dictate how MY customers pay for their items? I pay eBay approximately 10 percent in fees and only accept payment types that are legal tender in all fifty states!”.
Brady says he will start using other Internet auction sites as well as his own website after Oct 1st and hopes many other Sellers as well as Buyers do the same.
