eBay to Begin Accepting Apple Pay on iPhone and iPad Later This Year

eBay, the popular online marketplace, today announced it will begin accepting Apple Pay as a payment method later this year.

ebay apple pay
iPhone and iPad users will be able to use Apple Pay to purchase items from sellers participating in the initial phase of the rollout in the United States beginning in the fall, through both eBay's app and mobile website.

Earlier this year, eBay announced it will manage end-to-end payments on its platform, and the introduction of Apple Pay is part of that change. Amsterdam-based Adyen will replace PayPal as eBay's primary payments processor.

eBay plans to continue to expand its payments initiative in 2019, and expects to have transitioned a majority of its customers to the new experience by 2021. Over that time, Apple Pay will expand to more items and regions.

I don’t use eBay a lot but this could be good because it could boost Apple Pay awareness for people who don’t know iPhones well enough.

Will this cut down the percentage taken by Apple Pay (like PayPal does) when I sell anything on eBay?

Have Amazon accept it and we'll be getting somewhere.

(Yes, I know this is pretty unlikely, but still.)
