The final deadline for all sellers to sign up for eBay’s new payment system was yesterday. If you didn’t, all of your listings were pulled down. The new payment system requires the seller to link eBay directly to your bank account, supply eBay with your Social Security # and the generous gift of a 1099 at the end of the year. I can understand this applying to the mass sellers who actually use eBay as a retail store, but to the causal seller this is outright BS. In addition, this is for sure going to start limiting what is offered for sale on eBay. A casual seller is not going to want to give eBay their SS# just so they can sell a set of plastics or a shooter rod. Opinions?
