Account Opened in 1999 Is Ineligible for eBay Payments
By: Ina Steiner
A seller finds himself in an unusual situation. He kept getting errors when listing on a little-used personal account, and discovered it was because he hadn't yet signed up for Managed Payments.
But then came the Catch 22: his account was too old to sign up for Managed Payments.
"I was basically told that my account was so old that managed payments had not made it that far and they were unsure if it ever would," the seller told EcommerceBytes. "The eBay rep suggested that I open a new account."
The idea that eBay may not be able to get older accounts set up with its new payments system is concerning, and it raises the question of whether holders of older accounts may encounter other difficulties ahead due to legacy software issues.
The reader wanted to know if other users had experienced a similar situation, which he called "a little bonkers." Had this ever come up with any of your subscribers, he asked?
If you sell on accounts older than the mid-2000s and have successfully enrolled in Managed Payments, let us know - especially if it's from 1999 or earlier.
