Buyers will now have more flexibility and choice in payment methods
eBay is now managing payments on its marketplace in France, Italy, and Spain, according to the official statement.
As of Q4 2020, eBay is managing payments for more than 1 million sellers worldwide, with over 38% of the company’s global on-platform volume processed through managed payments during the quarter.
After initially launching in the US in 2018, the company has expanded its management of payments to Germany, the UK., Australia, Canada and is now adding France, Italy, and Spain, with Greater China coming soon.
The company will offer buyers a variety of payment options, including credit and debit cards as well as PayPal. Apple Pay will be available as a payment option on iPhone and iPad. Google Pay will be available on the eBay site and on the eBay Android App.
Meanwhile, buyers around the globe can pay in the ways that are most relevant to them.
In addition, they are offered a central place to manage their business. Sellers will experience easier account management with all information about their eBay business, in one place. That allows sellers to track and manage all of their transactions and customer interactions on eBay. This will also include a centralized location for customer service help.
