Managing New Accounts on eBay – Multiple Different Payments

Above all, the company wants to compete with competitors in any way: By allowing eBay to run all accounting processes through proprietary systems, it saves more on expensive payment service providers like Paypal. According to Focus Paypal, it charged 1.9 percent of sales plus $ 0.35 of transaction fee. As a result, eBay could rarely win over its direct Amazon competitor with offers. Amazon has often offered products at a slightly cheaper price because it has saved third party fees.
In the coming weeks, selected vendors will be invited to participate in the opening phase of the new payment process. It is still not known when exactly the new payment process starts in Germany. However, the online auction house plans to transfer a large number of dealers by 2021 to a new approach.
