For a company that basically popularised PayPal, it always surprises us when we see all the changes Ebay are making to payment methods on their website, especially with the separation of PayPal as a default payment method in February, though very soon this year you’ll have an all new option for your Ebay purchases, Apple Pay!
Ebay claim they are now managing end-to-end payment on its own platform, and allowing further payment methods is clearly proof of that going ahead.
The addition of Apple Pay will be great for users of iPhone and iPad, initially, as they will be able to through the Ebay app simply use Apple Pay through Touch ID or Face ID, and boom, purchase complete. No news, as of yet, when Apple Pay for Web will be supported on the Ebay website, so that Mac users will be able to join the fray, but we’re happy to see another merchant support Apple Pay!
Maybe Google Pay next Ebay ??
