I dont now how long this has been going on for but I was listing my Game Boy today (10p listing), and it turns out I can not subit my listing unless I ONLY have the option to accept Paypal:x:x

This is F'ing ridiculous - the fees are high as they are and now I can only sell the Game Boy by accepting Paypal payment only:x:x

This is the message I got:

i can understand that but, your both protected. state in the auction the message you recieved and that the final price will be plus ***% of the final cost due to the newly introduced rules resulting in paypal fees
#2
i agree , thats a liberty , without a verified account which you have to pay for then it seems they just cant take enough money off the users

i listed a motorbike today , cost me 8 quid

You cant do that, the terms n conditions state u cant charge more to cover paypal.

Just build it into your postage costs

I also listed a Phone but that seems fine.

I would be more understanding if they had this rule on Phone especially with the countless Nigerian scammers, but on a cheap game boy:roll:.

ok set a reserve, or we mass complain to ebay, but it does seem fair enough to do this to protect buyers if there has been a surge on illegal activity on that category, raise the postage by the equivelent amount, like the hong kong power sellers. tbh it doesnt seem fair to be forced to only accept paypal as they (ebay) will make from the charges from paypal as they own paypal. seems like your being backed into a corner to pay ebay for the listing and then paypal for the percentage. this rule wont last for long i doubt

also is it stated in ebays t&c that they reserve the right for you to only accept paypal? or similar wording
