Could eBay settings prevent buyers paying?

Are you getting buyers telling you that they’re unable to make payment with PayPal? One US seller thinks they’ve found the reason which is your settings in My eBay.

We were very tempted to file this one under unsubstantiated rumour on the grounds that eBay UK have mandated that PayPal is on all listings since mid 2008. You shouldn’t be able to add a listing to eBay without offering PayPal.

However we do hear of the odd buyer contacting a seller telling them that they were unable to complete checkout and make payment. If you’re the seller then check your settings in My eBay and make certain that you’re set up to offer PayPal. We fully expect that you will be and that it will be some other silly glitch that prevented your buyer from paying.
