Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that eBay is planning to stop using PayPal as its default payment processor. Discuss here if you think this move will help or hurt customers, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

It seems they will stop using PayPal altogether in 2020. It will be a pain for users to make a switch to Adyen but I guess they'll get over it.

It will make more dosh for eBay who, like Facebook, are very short of money. I might give them all a handout or perhaps cry in my beer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Too bad! I don't understand why they want to cut ties with PayPal, it's so convenient to use. Can someone suggest another alternative to PayPal since until 2020 we have to switch? (except Adyen)

Yeah, PayPal has been one of the best payment services for many years. Finding a better one isn't sooooo easy, in my opinion :/ amazon, Apple, and Android all offer their own money transfer programs that are simple enough, but I don't personally use any of them. Not sure what others are out there. I'm sure eBay will be fine :P

"I don't understand why they want to cut ties with PayPal"
Because they want to make PayPal's money too. When you're struggling that's what you have to do.

Makes sense @Derek, but they have to think about their customers too. I mean, a lot of people are using mainly PayPal and making the transition to another platform will be nerve-wracking, especially when you don't know what's good out there.
@Maraba, Yeah, I also know that Apple and Android have their own systems, but I don't think they are as widespread. Here there are some other options but I haven't heard much feedback on them: https://www.1and1.com/digitalguide/. Plus, there are so many disadvantages like high credit card rates, no cancellation, etc. :| They are just making our lives more complicated...

Okay but they are not planning to cut PayPal off completely? They are just planning to stop using it as a default payment option. So from my understanding this is not going to affect us very much. We will just have to change our settings once in the future :D
