eBay Managed Payments coming to Sellers in Greater China

By Lauren Fruncillo January 21, 2021 - 12:02 pm

eBay announced this week that they will be expanding their management of payments for sellers in Greater China. In April 2021 the company will offer buyers more flexibility and choice in payment methods and give sellers an easier way to manage their businesses.

eBay have already been managing payments for a select group of sellers in the U.S., U.K., Australia, and Canada and have also recently announced their plans to expand to France, Italy and Spain in Q1 2021.

“We are creating a modern managed marketplace. Taking control of the payments process on our platform is a key component of our strategy to enhance the eBay experience by breaking down barriers and removing complexities for our customers.

Sellers in Greater China place a high value on a convenient and seamless selling experience on eBay’s sites across the globe, and they typically manage multiple accounts and need streamlined operations. The offering will drive significant efficiencies and benefits for our customers, including helping our buyers pay the way they want. We will transition all sellers in the coming months and have designed our processes with our sellers in mind so they can easily and quickly take advantage of this important change.”
– Alyssa Cutright, Vice President of Global Payments, eBay

    I was having the same issue and then as if by Magic, because i definitely scoured the Managed Payments section, i found another section added:


    There, you can download a summary Fees Invoice or more detailed Fees invoice in excel format.

    Thanks for the link but that doesn’t include managed payments fee does it? I came across that link myself but it only the category fee. Not all of the fees.
