eBay Classifieds with a new function and a new limit

eBay Classifieds (soon to be classifieds only) has introduced a new feature. Although I would say that some users have already seen this function, because eBay classifieds has been testing it for some time. Select, click – and “Buy direct“: What sounds like a classic online shop is now also possible on eBay classifieds.

Prerequisite for the new function: The seller selects the appropriate option when placing a new ad. Buyers will then see another option when opening the ad, in addition to the ability to contact the seller – “Buy Direct”.

By selecting this option, you can select the shipping method in the next step and pay via “Pay securely” by direct transfer or credit card. Purchase on account will also be available for this option soon. Buyers do not have to wait for a response from the seller or worry that the goods will be bought by another prospect at the last moment.

Buyers can still contact the seller, for example to clarify any questions or to negotiate the price. “Buy direct” is not mandatory.

Also new: In addition to the introduction of “buy direct”, the online classifieds market is increasing this Limit for “Pay securely” to 2,000 euros. This limit also applies to Buy Direct. Until now, the payment function was only available for items up to and including 1,000 euros.
