Please note changes scheduled to take place on eBay.com.au on July 15, 2008 for new international safe payment requirements have been postponed.
Originally, eBay Australia announced that items listed for sale on ebay.com.au on or after July 15, 2008 would require sellers to only offer PayPal or pay on pick up on their listings. These new safe payment requirements are being postponed until the review process with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). As previously announced, eBay.com.au is continuing to work with the ACCC to achieve an outcome that benefits buyers and sellers.
Important: Policies announced on by eBay Australia on May 21st, 2008 regarding accepted payment methods still apply. This means PayPal is required on all items listed for sale on eBay.com.au. Other payment methods (i.e. bank deposit, cheque / money order) are permitted and may be offered on items listed for sale on eBay Australia until further notice. Also, as previously communicated, any listings that do not comply with eBay’s Accepted Payments Policy will be removed.
Note: A small number of categories are excluded from these changes. Learn more about these exclusions.
