As part of modernizing its marketplace and creating a more streamlined experience for customers, eBay is expanding its management of payments to France, Italy and Spain in the first quarter of 2021. This expansion will continue to offer buyers flexibility and choice in payment methods and give sellers an easier way to manage their businesses.
eBay began managing payments on its platform in the U.S. for a select group of eligible sellers in September 2018, followed by expansions to Germany in 2019 and the UK, Australia and Canada earlier this year. The company is now working to scale its management of payments to all countries.
“By managing the payments process, we’re creating a simpler, more unified experience for our customers, and streamlining operations for our sellers with one place to sell and get paid,” said Alyssa Cutright, Vice President of Global Payments at eBay. “As we continue expanding and scaling our management of payments around the world, we’re excited to add France, Italy and Spain to our growing roster of countries.”
The company plans to offer buyers in these countries more ways to pay, in addition to credit card and PayPal. Apple Pay will be available as a payment option on iPhone and iPad. Google Pay will also be available on the eBay site and on the eBay Android App.
