ProPay Expands Service to All eBay Sellers

Payment option was previously only for PowerSellers.

eBay sellers now have access to another payment service that was previous reserved for PowerSellers.

ProPay announced it is allowing all eBay sellers to have its integrated eAuction Account as of today. This will allow merchants to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards on eBay without opening a merchant account, and without buyers needing to create a ProPay account.

eAuction Accounts cost between $5 and $9.95, depending on a seller’s eBay status, ProPay reports. Sellers also pay transaction fees that start at 2.4 percent.

Greg Pesci, president and chief operations officer for ProPay, says expanding eAuction Accounts to all eBay sellers is an important step in the company’s efforts to provide attractive, comprehensive and technologically advanced payment options to merchants.

“We are extremely pleased to be expanding our online payment services for eBay sellers, and we appreciate the chance to continually increase our relationship with key merchants,” he adds.

ProPay notes that it is integrated with eBay checkout and gives sellers access to their funds immediately. It adds that setting up an account takes minutes.

The news of ProPay’s expansion comes a day after Paymate, another payment processor, stopped offering its services to eBay sellers in the U.S. It continues to offer service to sellers in Australia, New Zealand and Asia, according to news reports.
