YOu know it is getting to be very "scary" with eBay creating a "NEW" policy on who you can use for check outs

I was blown away that 5 days into the new Google Check out program that it got a VETO.

What do you think ?????

It comes as no suprise to me. It would be a bad move on ebays part to have anything to do with google right now while microsoft and ebay are trying to work out a deal for MS to take over ebay. The whole idea behind microsofts deal with yahoo..and now with ebay is to get a hold on googles insane take over of the internet. We wouldnt want that to happen, now would we? at least this is MS's thinking anyway.

Dayum! I'd had my fingers crossed but in my mind, I just knew that Ebay/Paypal wouldn't give up a piece of the piece that easy.

Oh well, I'm busy inplementing it into my other selling sites...Let's hope it works to at least make a dent in eBay.

Has anyone looked at stats lately? Ebay? Stocks? Etc?

Thanks, Donna
bidpay is now in list of allowed. Of course, they havent issued a formal announcement about policy change.

and be sure to read his commentary on, and follow the link to, Canadian Tire Money (one of eBay's approved payment methods) Cash-like coupons for use only at Canadian Tire Stores (similar to what we know here in the states as gift certificates), yet we cant accept cash or stamps?????
