    This policy does not affect any payment method commonly offered on eBay today.
    So it doesnt affect Western Union then??
    COntradiction imo.
    Western Union really isnt that bad. I have used it with no problems.

    I wish they would ban paypal - they still havent given me my moneh back lol.

    No but the whole western union, whilst they ban it, its not REALLY going to mak a difference, all they are really doing is saying 'if you file a complaint and the words western union appear in the complaint then we will file it and ignore you'

    LOL, they never have officially accepted Western Union so there really isnt a change.

    At the same time, they are unlikely to approve NoChex, seeing as thats a paypal competitor
    Please do not message me about Scan Free shipping, I no longer work for HEXUS.net

    Under the guise of protecting people from fraud, ebay removes their competition from nochex, who offer a better, safer and cheaper method than paypal.
