Ebay/Paypal Auto Link Tactic
checkout - Complaint
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- Ebay checkout is fine until I finish at Paypal and the page ends on the strong suggestion to "link" the two sites. My complaint is that the box that says 'yes link' is so much larger than the little single line that says ' not to link' . If I was sleepy like I was an hour ago when I continued my eBay shopping then I would barely have noticed that it was an option and just clicked on the 'link both sites' . . now feel suspicious of eBay and Paypal which has left a bitter shopping experience today.
That link only encourages over spending by impulse shopping . The page is a retailers' an impulse tactic only eCommerce style .. solution = make both options the same size and in the same shape box so consumer has to read the options. I will be posting this to my favorite complaint forums
