Paymate added as eBay payment provider
Online auctioneer eBay today announced it was adding Paymate, a full-service provider of Internet payment solutions, as one of the site's approved integrated payment providers.
US-based eBay sellers and buyers can now add Paymate as a payment option during the checkout process starting today.
A full-service online payment platform, the Paymate service is designed to simplify the online payment experience by eliminating cumbersome, slow registration processes and streamlining the transaction with direct payments to sellers' bank accounts.
Paymate will initially offer a credit card payment service that US sellers can use to accept US dollar payments via Visa, MasterCard and Discover on eBay Checkout as well as other merchant Web sites. Paymate's risk assessment systems will help sellers avoid fraud while buyers will be fully protected against unauthorized payments and non-delivery of goods.
In addition to Paymate, US customers can pay for purchases with eBay's subsidiary PayPal, use a credit or debit card, use credit card processing service ProPay or pay upon pickup.
