Ebay taking over paypal


(Rachel) #1

Will ebay taking over paypal make any difference to us being able to use paypal on Folksy @sianfolksy please? (sorry but I do worry about such things)

paypal and ebay are one company but are now splitting into 2 companies so that paypal can become more like a bank.

I was about to say the same thing Eileen. Ebay have always owned paypal,
It could be a good thing that they are splitting off to be their own company.

Thank you I had it the wrong way around - phew :smile:

We don’t foresee any issues with PayPal splitting from Ebay, no. Hopefully it should just make PayPal more competitive as a payment system. We are talking to PayPal next week anyway, so we’ll double check!

When you talk to them, would you be able to find out if they’ll increase the fees?
Any changes we should be expecting?

We’re talking to someone on the technical team so I guess it’s unlikely they’ll be able to tell us about pricing but I’m sure PayPal will make announcements of any price changes etc nearer the time!

Ok, well I hope using PP with Folksy continues to be smooth going forward…we’ll look forward to any announcements by Folksy or PP.
