***PayPal Required for Listings in Some Categories***

10 August, 2007 | 10:38AM BST

We wanted to let you know that from next week, items listed in certain categories on will need to offer PayPal as a payment option or as the sole payment method.

We are doing this as part of our ongoing efforts to reduce fraud and protect buyers and sellers in the eBay community.

PayPal will need to be offered as a payment option on listings in the following categories:

  • Video Games
  • Health & Beauty

PayPal will need to be the only payment method on sales in the following category:

  • Video Games: Consoles

If you would like to sell in the categories affected, please sign up for a PayPal account if you do not already have one.

We appreciate your continuing support in helping to keep eBay a great place to buy and sell.
