eBay bans other payment processors

Recently eBay changed their Paypal payment policy for sellers. If you accept Paypal, you must accept ALL FORMS of Paypal – including those that sellers have to pay extra for. You must also upgrade your Paypal account from a free one to a paid "merchant" account if required (and it WILL be required).

That was a pure "profit move" trying to squeeze more , as is this latest "Paypal-only" rule.

Those who think that this will cut back on scammers are deluding ourselves – account hijacking is rampant; I have experienced it.

This is just eBay trying to lock down their monopoly. I would like to see Google – or anyone else – compete, as eBay obviously needs competition to keep them "honest".
