Just got this from Amazon:
“In September, gift certificates will no longer be available as a disbursement option for sellers. This disbursement change applies to all sellers and is not a reflection of your seller eligibility. “As a seller who has used the gift certificate disbursement option in the past, we want to be sure that you are aware of this upcoming change and take the necessary action to avoid any disbursement disruptions.”
And with that, eBay becomes a viable selling option again. I use the money from the stuff I sell on Amazon to buy new stuff on Amazon. It’s a great way to budget my money and a nice way to hide it from my wife. ;-)
I haven’t sold anything on Amazon recently, but I was thinking of putting a few books up there in the coming weeks to put towards future Amazon purchases. If I go through eBay, I’ll rake in less money thanks to PayPal deductions, and that money won’t be available for Amazon purchases. I’d have to buy those comics through a dealer who accepts PayPal. That ain’t Amazon, who keep feebly attempting to create their own PayPal and failing.
Bad move, Amazon.
