eBay said it will be rolling out the ability for buyers to pay for all of their PayPal purchases at once, including payments to multiple sellers. Currently, buyers who have won items offering PayPal from multiple sellers must go through the payment process each time they pay a different seller. After this enhancement is introduced, buyers will have the option to pay all their sellers by going through the PayPal payment process a single time.

Buyers will be able to pay multiple sellers by clicking on the "Pay Now" button (such as on the closed item page) or the new "Pay For All PayPal Items" button in the Items Iíve Won section in My eBay. Buyers will also still have the option of paying each seller individually.

Sellers will receive their individual payments through PayPal the same way they do today. To preview the new multiple seller payment functionality, visit:


eBay also introduced a directory of API-certified developers who offer services to eBay users. The Solutions Directory can be found online at:
