eBay to add Apple Pay support


(Simon B) #1

This is interesting.

With Apple Pay (and, hopefully, Google Pay) built in to the eBay app, I wouldn’t need to use PayPal any more at all, really. Which is no bad thing - going direct to the bank via Apple or Google Pay is a much slicker solution.

Oh no. More easy ways to spend money… :grimacing:

Finally! This is so annoying when buying things with the eBay app, I don’t understand why it’s taken them so long. It’s like they are only just leaving the 90s behind.

Next stop amazon :raised_hands:t3:

It’s interesting that amazon still seem to have quite a legacy payment system - they still don’t ask for cvv. Wonder if it just works for them. Although means they are very unlikely to be able to support ApplePay etc without upgrading

Surprising for someone who has their fingers in all the pies like amazon :scream:

Slightly off-topic but I wonder why PayPal themselves don’t support Apple Pay… a significant amount of online stores use them to process payments (and make them profit through fees), so why wouldn’t they make it easier to pay?

I hope the next step is supporting google pay! Paypal take ages to take the money out of my account! :frowning:

Are you verified or have it set to your bank account?

I changed mine back to card as default so it was instant.

I am verified! I’ll change it back to card and see what happens. Thanks!
