Title: Ebay and paypal

Appears Ebay and Paypal will soon be separate identities/companies.
So what's  the catch? :musing:

In the scheme of things, I wouldn't think they could make it any more <<insert your favourite adjective here>>

... but I don't diminish the creative potential of eBay and PayPal.

A quick scan through the buyer and seller protection clauses of the relative policies didn't raise any alarm bells (any louder than already ringing) ... but, I do emphasize it was quick.

BTW - Did you know that items listed on Gumtree are not eligible for PayPal buyer protection?  [S12.1 (i)(j) of the "Updated User Agreement for PayPal Services"  https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/ua/pdf/AU/ints/ua.pdf ]
