eBay Says Just Say No To Personal Checks or Money Orders


If your a long time ebayer like we are ( on ebay since 1999) you may not know that ebay has changed the rules on personal checks and money orders. According to the new policy at http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/accepted-payments-policy.html#what your no longer allowed to take anything other than ....

  • PayPal
    To make checkout faster, you'll now log in to your PayPal account on the checkout page. To skip PayPal login altogether, select the checkbox that says "Remember me for faster checkout on eBay" on the PayPal login box.
  • PayPal Credit
  • Credit card or debit card processed through the seller's Internet merchant account
    Your payment is safe and secure. You can choose to save your card to your eBay account. Remove a card anytime in your My eBay account settings.
  • Payment upon pickup
    If you offer payment upon pickup, you'll also need to offer one of the approved electronic methods, and may include this statement in your listing: "Contact me for payment methods to pay on pickup."

The only exception to these rules are in ebay motors, coins and bullion and Business and Industrial categories.

I had someone ask me if I would take a check and was about to say sure why not but something told me to google the subject ( little hairs standing up on the back on my neck ) and sure enough I was led directly to the new rules.

I suppose it's really a good thing, those rules were put in place to protect both buyer and seller so yeah just a heads up, if you have done this in the past just be aware the rules have changed so it's no longer allowed.

Peace !

Our Record Breaking eBay Sales Week Ending June 11th 2016



Awesome week, we made 734.05 in gross sales for the week and we had 34 sales, this number increased since I made the video above this morning so slightly lower number in video. This is an all time record for our store !

I also talk about why we quit looking for jeans to sell. I forgot to say in the video that if you can find jeans for $1 then they are worth picking up if they are among the popular brand and size groups but still not on our radar anymore.

Hope your having a great week of sales, remember to just keep listing and those sales will come for sure !

Peace !
