    Default Ebay sucks!

    does anyone have this problem when you try to sell stuff on Ebay? They request me to link my bank account to paypal, otherwise i won't be able to sell.

    Yes, you need to link your bank account to paypal. I believe it has something to do with proving you're a "real" person.

    I have been selling stuff for a while, now they changed the rules after I started selling valuable stuff. Oh well, i guess i have to deal with ebay and paypal even though I have 100% positive feedbacks.

    I'm not really sure what you're talking about. As far as I knew, everyone had to have paypal linked to their bank account if they want to sell stuff. When you first open a paypal account, you have to option of labeling it a personal account. You can accept payments up to a certain amount each month, but the account isn't really meant for people that sell on a regular basis. So if you're selling a lot, then paypal will ask you to upgrade your account to a business account. It requires that you have a verified address and bank account so they have some sort of assurance that the person isn't trying to run a scam. Or, at least, this is how I understood it when I set up my ebay and paypal accounts... but this was several years ago.

    To continue with what everyone is saying, eBay now owns Paypal, and thus you have to open a Paypal account if you want to sell items and recieve electronic payments. Paypal really isn't bad at all, and in the time I've been using it (almost 4 yrs now), I've never had a problem with it. In fact, I've never had a major issue with eBay except for the bidders who don't pay.
