About accepted payment methods
PayPal and merchant credit card are eBay's accepted safer electronic payment methods. Sellers on eBay.com.au are required to offer at least one of these in most categories, and if you pay with one of these methods, your purchase is usually covered by eBay Money Back Guarantee. Sellers may also offer to accept additional payment methods, but these may not offer as much protection.
