ACCC says eBay must play fair

A spokeswoman for the ACCC said that any misrepresentations by eBay/PayPal to sellers who want to offer alternative payment methods are of concern to the competition regulator. eBay members are complaining about being presented with a large PayPal logo on the checkout page while other payment options are “buried” at the bottom of the page. eBay said they are not restraining trader's ability to offer other payment options. eBay rivals Oztion and Trading Post both report recent spikes in membership and items listed for sale on their sites.
