eBay to argue case for PayPal at ACCC conference

No primary category set

It looks like eBay may argue the case for implementing PayPal only on eBay in Australia in public, at a conference to be held on Monday 30th June at the Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, Sydney.

Advance warning to interested parties was sent out via email (opens in .pdf) on Monday this week, and according to Auctionbytes it is to go ahead.

eBay or any interested party could call the conference, so there is no guarantee that they will show up, although it would appear on the face of it unlikely that they wouldn’t want representation. eBay have already stated that they would “work with the ACCC and hopes to achieve a final outcome which has the safety and security of eBay’s members as its paramount objective“.

Currently eBay have delayed implementation of a PayPal only policy in Australia until 15th July (it was scheduled to go live on the 17th June), and the conference could prove the last chance they have to argue their case.

Submissions to the ACCC have been steadily pouring in throughout the whole of June, and currently there is nothing to suggest that eBay will win this battle.

  1. I prefer the idea that users can choose a payment method for the checkout. Different payment gateways offer different solutions depending on turnover even though eBay make it difficult for sellers to offer other payment methods. PayPal charges relatively high fees compared to others. If we see the PayPal only policy been implemented I do have a feeling we still won’t see any fee cost cuts.
