Default eBay change

Tried to do a BIN last night on eBay. Now the BIN forces you to use PayPal before it will complete the transaction. Tells you that someone else can still win the auction. I refuse to use PayPal.

That might only be dictated by the seller on this auction. Sometimes I have gone to do a BIN and have seen those kinds of "restrictions".

Yes that is controlled by the seller, not ebay. They will allow a seller to accept a few different electonic payments or credit cards directly.

It is my understanding that ebay is making changes to the way buy it now items are purchase. Once again they feel the need to break what did not need fixing.

What is the potential eBay take on a Paypal vs check transaction? That should answer this question.

That's news to me. Wow, nice move ebay. I guess if you hit a BIN and aren't quick enough someone else could still buy it out from under you, pay for it, and win it....after you were the first to hit the BIN. I better get out my fast typing fingers...

I can't remember the last time I said to myself "I have to pull the trigger on that BIN before someone else does". Usually BIN is overpriced stale cards....
I have almost stopped looking for anything but auctions on eBay, the BINs are so overpriced, especially on e90-1...

Yeah, I had forgotten about this nice little change coming down the pike. What I foresee is a lot of headaches for any seller unfortunate enough to be stuck in the middle of one of these situations. I have a hard enough time explaining to several newbies a week, "No, I can't SEE what is in your Shopping Cart until you "commit to buy" the items, so I can't send you an invoice for all the stuff you've picked out." Now, I can add irate buyers who think they've committed to a purchase but had it bought out from under them to the mix. "Why did you sell it to someone else when you knew I was going to pay for it. Way to treat your customers. I was still shopping in your store, but I'm so pissed off now, you can just cancel the rest of my purchases." To which I respond, "No, I can't SEE what is in your Shopping Cart..."

In some backwards-thinking way, eBay sees this as a solution to buyers of Fixed Price items taking too long to pay, or not paying at all. As usual, they completely overlook the potential for it to backfire on the seller. And it will. The reality is that if some numbskull clicks on BIN and doesn't intend to pay, all this will do is soothe their conscience by making them think that they haven't really committed to anything, so no harm done.

I see some nice BIN prices occasionally, though the ratio must be like 200-5-1 on overpriced vs fair vs good. I recently got an N28 Caruthers via eBay BIN for $150, which according to Cardtarget had not sold for under $250 in same grade in the past 6-7 years.

Relating to Paypal. I've had really annoying issues completing transactions through my phone recently (mobile web site, not app). Problem being when eBay asks me to sign into Paypal to pay, I feel like they've eliminated 1-2 step/click(s), with payment now completed in a single click rather than a click(s) followed by a review screen like I've been used to. This has lead me to unknowingly pay prematurely before selecting payment method.. and using default bank wire, as opposed to credit card. This has happened to me 3 times in past month and has caused overdrafts since these transactions, even when caught in 1-2 minutes are totally irreversible and I'm just not able to transfer funds from savings in time. This happen to anyone else or am I just crazy??

In fairness to Paypal, their customer service REALLY pleasantly surprised me today (after several useless calls) by offering to cover a few previous overdraft fees I'd incurred (it was very easy for them to see the recent transactions I'd had issues with) and promising follow up from a tech supervisor later this week.

Makes sense to me that you need to pay to actually win the BIN IF your using paypal (IF the seller only accepts paypal). No need for a seller to only accept paypal and the buyer pay days later on a BIN.

BUY IT NOW - PAY NOW, lol
