As of recently eBay has been really good to me, why you ask? Well I’ll tell you.
Back in the day, one of the main things that used to annoy me was that I could not change my e-mail address on file on my account without entering a credit card. The problem was that the e-mail address in which I signed up was one in which I no longer used and simply wanted to change it, but no, eBay just kept asking me for my damn credit card.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand that having a credit card on file is an extra security measure, but it’s definitely something I don’t want to keep on “file.” Sorry eBay. I don’t see why you would need my credit card in the first place to allow me to change my e-mail address, that’s just stupid. There are some who use their bank account for example through PayPal and do not own a credit card. You’re not only leaving those people in the dusk, but you’re also leaving ones who don’t own a credit card in the first place.
Much to my surprise, eBay has changed their policies. I’m not exactly sure as of when, but you no longer need a credit card to change your e-mail address attached to your account, thanks eBay!
Now, I don’t worry about not getting e-mails from eBay or from sellers because it all gets sent to a convenient message box which I can access all the time. The end.
