    Re: Now e-Bay wants my SSN and bank account info . . .???

    I just bought something there (yet another cheap Packard shutter, just because it was very cheap and any Packard shutter is potentially a helpful problem solver), and it now has the option to pay with credit card without going through PayPal. Went ahead and gave it a try.

    I'm a musician too, and there's a site called Reverb that has taken much of the business away from ebay for buy/selling music gear, and they also do their own payment processing. I think there is a distinct advantage to it vs. using a third party like PayPal. As a Reverb buyer/seller, it looks to me like ebay is playing catch-up to their successful model. Though, I had thought that ebay buying PayPal and then tightly integrating it was supposed to be accomplishing the same thing? I guess not?
    Is the real story here that they're looking to sell off PayPal?

    I wonder what this will do to PayPal if eBay will no longer allow their service to be used...? Been a few years since I sold on ebay but I buy there quite often - mostly adding to my collection of Daguerreotypes and Ambrotypes. I always use my credit card thru PayPal.
    I guess I pretty much gave up on selling on ebay when they took away the sellers ability to leave negative feedback for a deadbeat buyer.

    Not much. PayPal is a huge company now. eBay transactions constitute a very small fraction of their current business.
