How will I get World Coins? More than 90% of my foreign collection have been purchased through ebay.
Where did you hear that information? Do you have a source?
Posted on Ebay community.
Here's the discussion...reading it now....it's from 3 months ago.....there must be a loophole....reading now:
But....if they did someone is gonna have a windfall crating a new place for coin and currency sellers.
But I have been to coin shops before that don't sell foreign coins, not even Forex like a small bag of Euros or Yen or Canadian.
My source for finding modern things like that will be cut significantly if Ebay altogether just bans sales on all coins.
YouTube video and e-commerce site discussing this:
It's NOT definitive it appears. But nobody is 100% sure.
I can't believe these idiots, after the PayPal fiasco (they ditched it), would do this sales reduction. The stock analysts have not caught on.
I will also be willing to bet that social media is the second largest avenue for these purchases. You have a better chance of getting to know who you are buying from there.
This appears to be eBay's attempt to cling to the juicy associated fees, while dispensing with the headaches that often attend sales in those categories.
What is this "Managed Payments System" I'm reading about ?
You are exactly right. I know it's not coins but there are blatant "Diamond" jewelry sales on Ebay from Non-US Countries. I am sure that there are problems all the time with those yet Ebay permits items to be posted as "Diamond" when in fact they are cheap imitations.
Ebay is partnering with ADYEN "A single payments platform to accept payments anywhere, on any device" and that Adyen has rules that typically don't permit purchases of coins and bullion through their platform (and likely other items as well).
Some have mentioned Etsy (that is said to have an agreement with Adyen payment processing the same that Ebay is to be partnering with that has these rules but maybe Etsy negotiated to eliminate them in their agreement and Ebay will probably do the same) and there is a forum here too that you may already be familiar with that permits sales.
