Here's what we found for "How to pay for items"

You can pay for items on eBay using PayPal, credit cards, or debit cards. Other ways to pay include vouchers, Nectar points and more. Before you bid or buy, check the listing to see which payment methods the seller accepts.

Once you've won an auction-style listing or bought an item at a fixed-price using Buy It Now, you can pay for your order. 

When you check out and pay, make sure to verify or change your delivery address. If your PayPal account is linked with your eBay account, you'll just confirm and pay. If it's not linked or if you don't have a PayPal account, you can select another payment method, such as a credit or debit card. You'll then confirm your order details and pay through PayPal guest checkout. 

You'll get an email letting you know your payment was received and when your item will be sent.

To speed things up in checkout, you can: 

  • Save your payment details 
  • Pay with PayPal every time 


Buyer protection

Under the eBay Money Back Guarantee, you're protected for the full value of most orders, including postage, when you pay with PayPal.  


Other accepted payments

For items in certain categories (such as Motors or Real Estate) or those picked up in person, sellers can also offer to accept payment on pickup, COD (Cash on Delivery), bank-to-bank transfers, cheques, money orders, or other payment services. With these methods though, you aren't covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee.
