Enhanced account security and an additional payout option

Changes to enhance user account security

We’re adding extra security to your eBay account, enhancing the protection of your personal and financial information. As a result, you may be subject to additional verification, including being asked to re-enter your login credentials or a one-time code sent to you via SMS, when you undertake certain activities on eBay.

This security enhancement also helps us comply with legislation in the United Kingdom and European Union. Learn more.

Payouts on-demand

When extra security is applied to your account, if you choose to receive payouts weekly, fortnightly, or monthly, you’ll be able to request a payout on-demand at any time, so you don't have to wait for your next scheduled payout to get paid. If desired, you can also choose to only receive payouts on-demand. Your bank will make funds available to you per normal processing times. Learn more about getting paid for items you sell.

Remember, choosing a longer payout schedule may mean easier reconciliation, and may also provide more time for funds to accrue so you can use them towards selling costs such as refunds. Review your schedule now.
