Offering new payment methods will bring significant efficiency and benefits to our customers, including helping our buyers pay in the way they want. ”

Now after expanding to Germany, German station sellers can cheer. At the same time, for the platform, eBay will continue to see the accelerated momentum of its management payments.
The company said the expansion’s new service aims to provide buyers with flexible payment methods that give them more options and allow sellers to enter a new customer market and achieve higher sales performance.
