Paying for an eBay Purchase

When you buy something in a store, you need to check out to pay. eBay isn’t much different. eBay’s checkout is a convenient way to pay for your completed auction or Buy It Now sale with a credit card or eCheck through PayPal. You may also use checkout to exchange information with the seller and pay for your item using a money order, a check, or another payment service that the seller accepts.

Checkout is integrated directly into the item page so that you can win and pay for an item in less than a minute.

You’ve won the auction and you can check out and pay immediately.

When you click the Pay Now button, you are taken to the checkout page. You can make an immediate payment only if the seller accepts PayPal. If the seller accepts other types of payment, such as a personal check or a money order, you can indicate which type of payment you want to use, and this page will send the seller your shipping information. If the shipping cost is based on your zip code, or the seller offers discounts on buying multiple items, you can make any such changes on the page and recalculate the total. Then you can go ahead and send the payment.
