eBay has been fucked since the day they bought Paypal. Shortly thereafter, they made paying with any other method difficult. Now, its damn near impossible to pay any other way. I refuse to use them to sell anything, the only thing I buy there is my shipping supplies. How a company can sell 8 massive rolls of bubble wrap shipped to my door for $180 on eBay and still make a profit boggles my mind.

the KEY to selling there is to charge penny's for the actual product and make it up in the shipping :-)

I wish there were more options out there. The problem is just about every buyer wants to use paypal.

i only use it to sell products with fixed prices , and i mark the items up to cover my ass . if customers dont buy it off ebay they get the better price .... if the customer wants to pay an extra 150-200 bucks on ebay they can

I use Intuit Payment Network. It's just like PayPal but it's only $.50 a transaction up to $5,000.00 if buyer uses a checking account. It's like 3.25% if they use a CC. I email an invoice to the customer and they can click a link in the invoice to pay. It even imports the sale into Quickbooks for me. Way cheaper and easier than PayPal, for me at least. No complaints from buyers who wanted to use PayPal yet, buyers don't have to sign up or be a member like they do with PayPal.
