I guess the eBay/PayPal gorilla put the only other well known service out of business. mad.giffrown.gif

I got that e-mail too, and it's a shame. Bidpay is still around though, you don't get paid as fast with them, but it's still free for sellers. I wouldn't hate Paypal so much if it weren't for these few things:


1. Their service just plain sucks.

2. I have a personal account, so if you pay me, no credit cards, only bank transfer so I don't pay a fee. If I upgrade, you can pay me by credit card, bank account, or existing balance, and no matter what, I pay 3%. Why should I pay 3% for them to make an accounting entry from your Paypal account to mine???

3. No option to pass fees along to buyers. I would gladly let people pay by credit if they pay the fee.

4. Increasing intrusion! I just paid for an auction, that was not an auction. Yes, it was on eBay, but the reserve wasn't met, so the seller and I worked out a price and I went to send the funds through Paypal, and I chose eBay auction, and it wouldn't let me proceed without inputting the number! The deal did not get done through eBay, why would I give them the info so they can go after the poor seller for more fees??? So I changed it to auction/other, and they still wanted to know the auction site, the auction number and my auction ID before I could pay!!!! This prying into personal data that is none of their business has got to stop!!!


Sorry for the rant, but eBay and Paypal have really gone downhill. I used to do a lot more though them, in fact I was once a "PowerSeller" whatever good that got me. Ever since they bought Paypal and got rid of Billpoint, I have cut down my eBay activity dramatically. sign-rantpost.gif

A long time ago when C2IT started I applied. Twice. Both times the process failed for unknown reasons. So I never bothered with it again. Nobody ever offered to pay me using that service. I did get a Western Union payment once...
