Are you serious? I for one just bought my first ebay item yesterday and that wasn't a problem. I had much difficulty logging in as I had an account that was determined to be inactive and had to cancel that account and re-sign up a new one. So I followed the steps to do that and when I almost have a new account I get rejected because I HAVE ANOTHER ACCOUNT WITH THEM!! Apparently my old account didn't get cancelled. So I go through it all again getting close to giving up. I wasn't feeling very patient then. But finally I have success. Now I have to "get verified". There are 2 ways to do this. First one they ask for your bank account number AND PIN. Of course the site assures security and all but I am thinking "If I give them this they can view ALL MY ACCOUNTS with my bank". I am not willing to extent such sensitive information for the purpose of paying for my $18.95 Ebay item. Quite frankly I am shocked PayPal asks for this. So that not being an option, I am left with only one other choice. I can give them my bank routing # and account # and they will deposit a few cents into the account. When it shows up on my next statement I go to the site and enter the amount deposited to prove this is my account. Then and only then may I use Paypal. What a pain in the ass. I don't understand why I cannot just give my credit card info and skip the hassle.

I forgot to add. After I pay this purchase I will never buy from a selling that doesn't take credit cards.

I don't think that anybody at eBay (or PayPal) gives a schit about their customers!
