UPDATE*****. After speaking to Ebay Corporate, the following things should be noted.
1.) No need to sign up with Adyen or anything to make purchases. Customers just input their credit card information like any other website
2.) Money can be sent daily from your account to your bank...so if your selling daily, you will get a deposit every single day directly into your bank account within 1-2 days. Same as PayPal
Thanks for all the info. My biggest concern is tax time. I’m sure I’m not alone in that I use GoDaddy for my book keeping. They way that it automatically syncs with PayPal and helps me track state taxes as well as other things has been everything. I’m super nervous and dreading the time consumption of having to figure and track some of these things manually. 😬😬😬
I live in the USA and refuse to change and will not give in to try this
change. There are US blogs all over the place on the internet by very
knowledgeable people that this will be a very inconvenient feature. Not
only this but many people do not realize that ebay is not an actual US
company. It was at one time available for you to call Customer Service
and ask for a US rep to talk to instead of the no knowledge and no help
useless senseless other country reps you get now (I am guessing India
and not very hard to discern this). Just gone and no connection to any
rep in the US whatsoever. For the piddly savings of what 1.5% in a fee
that is overcharged already, I am sorry not worth the bother. I also do
not want ebay to be able to access any part of my bank account
whatsoever nor any other company outside the US for that matter. Why do I want a company in another country full of
fraudulent issues all over the place on the internet and other sites to
access my bank account?!!! Not only this but you have to use a separate
company to manage payments for purchase of postage??? Come on give me a
break! There are already options becoming available for people in the
USA and using USA companies to be able to sell the same way as ebay and
be able to still use paypal. I am NOT talking about high percentage
sales fee Amazon either. Ebay is becoming a huge problem for US sellers
(as well as I am sure other countries also) and the sooner we leave
them, the better things will be.
As a seller, I just saw the payment processing. But I want to know is EVERYBODY being put into this program? Because I didn't sign up, but I haven't had sales in 2 weeks. Across the internet everybody is crying that they don't have sales and they blame managed payments. So I'm wondering is this program effecting low sales?
I assume Ebay/Adyen will not have a debit card so you can use your funds immediately? Also, I currently use my PayPal account as my business account...but if Ayden is dumping the $$ in you checking account daily then will need a business account...more fees! Sounds like Ebay should buy PayPal....haha...(yes, I know they already DID OWN THEM but spun them off as their own company)...Smart!
This is awesome! I sell on amazon and was about to start selling on ebay, but hesitated because of paypal, I've heard too many horror stories. But I'll wait until paypal is completely replaced and glitches worked out.
Thanks again Casey..I was one of the sellers Ebay contacted to op into this new process. They made it sound great and wonderful and spectacular. However, after the glitcharmageddon that happened between May and September, then learning more about the cons to this new process at ebay open...plus having you highlight those concerns to us again on your platform.. I'm not trying to be a guinea pig for what could be the biggest ebay glitch of the year. And for them to roll out something this major during Q4... well that's crazy. I'll pass for now as well.
Hey what’s up raockstarflipper. I came across your video on YouTube and I’ve been a subscriber of yours for about two months now. I myself have an eBay business however I am novice when it come to the mechanics of getting my items to sell. Which is a major issue for me. Can you make a video dedicating or do you already have an existing video(s) that can help me and others that have this issue. Thanks Tone.
Yes I did opt in during the first message they sent out... And they said you couldn't opt out...HOWEVER after they provided all the other info they decided to send out a "confirmation" opt in message basically giving us another chance to decide which was the other day... then I did not opt in
The no GSP - not opting ini at this time. Also - Paypal offers loans based on ebay sales and they take their payback through your sales thru Paypal what happens now if you have an outstanding balance on a loan from Paypal. will new method offer small business loans like this also?
I wonder if they are going to spot shipping money for same day shipping. Newer sellers may not have extra funds to put out. Also hopefully you will be able to transfer into a paypal account because paypal is so versatile as to what you can do and I use it for sooo many different things. The money savings sounds good though. People are are so used to using paypal that I think it is going to take quite awhile to catch hold. They are going to have to dazzle the buyer. And why they didn't from the rip make it so you could use paypal I don't understand. That's going to be a huge problem to push on a buyer. Out of habit and out of convenience that would turn me off buying an item. You can go to an estate sale and use paypal so why you could not on ebays new platform is baffling. Over time I am sure all things will work out. Me I'll stick with paypal until I see reason not to or have to switch.
I had to close a bank account because PayPal wouldn't let me delete it from their system and they kept taking fees from my checking account instead of my PayPal account (I had $$ in my PayPal account).
PayPal and Master Card are a bunch of POS. They will kick people off from receiving payments if you're a wrong thinker and openly insult Islam. I cant wait until they go the way of Myspace.
What about shipping labels? How the heck do we print them? My customers pay shipping so on paypal the money is there for me to use. I don't pay out of my pocket. Do I have to set up a new USPS account for labels? Does Ebay have something connected to this Adyen site so that I can access the funds for labels? Am I supposed to have an few hundred or more chilling somewhere for labels per week?
eBay with no glitches makes me laugh every time they start something new there are a huge amount of glitches stay away until everything is worked out. This is your money people you work so hard for. They have already ruined a lot of people's sales now your money wait see what happens until 2019 let all the bugs get worked out.
Ebay is at the 6 count after being knocked out by Amazon, this will be the 10 count for ebay. The constant changes and glitches have driven many buyers away in my categories, most of my old customers buy through my website and other venues and now that I've moved to other platforms my old ebay customers are saying its about time you moved away. Ebay have dogged their old sellers and have tried to embrace the cheap China junk which Amazon owns. Good luck to anyone who sells there. Peace.
ebay and paypal were separate. Ebay buys paypal and forces sellers to use paypal. Ebay splits from paypal. Ebay gets in bed with another payment processor and does not want users using paypal (if the opt in with the new scheme) New plan has lower fees (initially) has ebay ever kept fees low? It sure makes one wonder..................
Hey, Rockstar! I am one of the many who got messed over by Paypal BIG TIME! I got my account “Limited” for reasons they wouldn’t say, I have had to call and ask time and time again. Anyway, they are holing my money for 180 days! I have since found out Paypal has done this to many eBayers, this one guy on YouTube said they are holding like $64K of his own money for 6 months! !! Being a “mom & pop” business I have been so baffled and financially hurt by this and cannot for the life of me understand it! It’s been a month worth of lost sales right now. I have been doing business with them since 2005 without issue 1. I have spoke highly about them and always been quite happy them. Nor did I do one thing different than I have always done as far as my business. Anyway, I just recently found out that eBay does take Authorize.net so I just signed up with them. I haven’t received an email about Ayden (pronounced A-den) yet. Authorize.net charges $25/mo + 2.9% per transaction and .30 for each transaction. I also have to go to USPS to use Click & Ship and so far it seems they don’t offer First Class Shipping only Priority on their website. Authorize.net does accept International payments for International sales. Just gonna be a bit pricey to use them at the monthly fee and ship all thing Priority as well but I’m just happy to be selling again!
Ebay has dumped Paypal for good reason they are truly evil to sellers, of coarse buyers are clueless to this reality, so this is good news but no one will dump Paypal while buyers cant pay with paypal. I seriously hope this is the end for Bad actor Paypal!
But it is broken, has been for years. Have you never had an issue with buyers where you need to call Ebay and they say they can't help so they send you to PayPal? Then PayPal says they can't help and send you back to Ebay? I have, so have countless others. It was a broken system.
I do love my PayPal debit card though and its cashback. Also having instant access to my money after a sale is great. I'm sure Adyen and Ebay hear all the feedback and will make positive changes, but like you and many others I will wait until forced to switched.
Absolutely Horrible!!!!!! EBAY has not notified buyers about the payment changes! Biggest mistake to sign up. Anyone want to sell the tools i make? if you have more than 3k feedback top seller reply below lol Rockstar i have screenshots of times i sold, Processing stage and first payout that is on the way.
Hey Rockstar, the next time you talk to the Ebay Execs can you tell them to lift the gate on my store. I didn't open a store to have NOTHING SELL!! :)
I DON'T BELIEVE EBAY. Like Trump, I don't believe anything they say....2.7% laughable.
Rockstar, do you use DHL to ship overseas? How do you get confirmation that order was received?
Thanks for the information ~ I must tell you I really appreciate that you announce the date at the beginning of your videos! There are some times when I'm too busy to get to YouTube for a number of days and then I have NO idea when the videos were posted! Appreciate you and your helpful hints!
I only have about 5 of my items in GSP out of 1500 listed for international shipping. That's not a deal breaker. I'm more concerned the bugs aren't all worked out yet. Being 4th quarter and PP the dominant player on the platform, I'm passing on this golden opportunity.
No GLOBAL shipping or PayPal for buyers - NO THANKS. That is nuts and extremely damaging for 4th quarter sales potential. I won't be going in until they include GSP & PayPal. I'm sure there are not that many out there using something other than PayPal right now. MORE options for buyers are needed (not less).
Been selling on Ebay for over 10 years and have NEVER used the Global Shipping program. In my opinion, it's overrated. I ship many packages per month overseas and just use the regular First class intl shipping through USPS. The key is to insure each package, which only costs me .90 per package through inkfrog. Also, the overall shipping costs is much cheaper for buyers, which translates to more sales. I mostly sell clothing and have never had an international return. Ive had lost packages but the claim process is super easy and refunds the buyer both the item cost and the shipping costs.
I think i will be holding off as I do a lot of GSP Transactions and get better profit margins with products against other sellers that dont offer GSP. and as like many new roll outs of any products or services there are initial issues that happen and as I am new to the reselling game and just starting to build it up nicely I can not afford to be having setbacks
I have a question I hope you can answer. I’ve been wanting to start thrifting and selling on eBay and everyone is trying to talk me out of it. Is it worth it just to start even if you are just buying a couple hundred dollars of items to start or is that not enough inventory to start with. Thanks.
Most people don't make a full time income off eBay. Let's say you sell 4 items a week and make $10 profit per item. Is that sustainable for you? EBay isn't a bed of roses. I've lost money on some items. The most profit I ever made on one item is $40. I would say if you're going to do it start small. Sell items you already own but don't need then use that capital to purchase more profitable items then reinvest the profit off those items to scale up. Don't ever invest more than you can afford to lose. Good luck 💪
i have not gotten the message as of yet but will be opting out until this is ready to go. but at least i can still use paypal. people can only use debit credit cards to pay so i can still sell but will be a deal breaker as i do some sales overseas. this will be very interesting to see what happens
Thank you so much for addressing this. I knew when I got the message that you would make a video about it. I made sure I didn't opt in. I held on to the message just in case. But I will hold off on going into it as long as I can. I don't do global shipping, so that's not a big deal. But my buyers not being able to pay with paypal during my biggest selling months. No way! I'm not taking that chance.
I'm going to try it. The fixed fee is actually $0.00 (for now at least) and I do a lot of small sales. If it doesn't work or I get complaints about no Paypal I will just double list my items on a second account not in the trial (I sell replenishables so it's not a big deal).
Edit: I signed up and sold my first item with the new system without any issues.
I found this posted, is this true? And if so do you have more information on it?
*just read that even though adyen advertises that they do not charge fees, there is a monthly $120 USD minimum invoice attached to their service. They do not make it clear whether the seller has to sell merchandise with that minimum value per month or if adyen invoices the seller for that amount. *
Thanks so much for doing this video. I got this message from Ebay and I was watching your other videos and was trying to get more clarification... and here you are :) I was hesitant about signing on now and you confirmed my decision. Thanks for all you do.
Hi there, I’m a new seller on ebay. I have sold a total if items, but paypall keeps my money on hold for a few days per ebay rules. Do you know how many more items I have to sell so that ebay takes this hold off my account. Do you think I qualify for this new program? Thank you in advance for your reply.
