eBay is managing payments

Managing payments is the way business is done on eBay and it’s essential to enhancing the buying and selling experience on the marketplace. When eBay manages payments, you can sell and get paid in one place, on eBay, and buyers have new ways to pay.

You can schedule payouts at a frequency you choose (daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly). Regardless of how the buyer pays, payouts are initiated within 2 business days (Monday through Friday, excluding bank holidays) of confirming the buyer’s payment.

We’ve managed billions in payments for thousands of sellers since 2018 and over 13 million sellers have registered globally with more joining every day.
