eBay and PayPal have a weird relationship and the combination of the two is sometimes frustrating. The companies broke apart a couple of years ago but they still are pretty However many people like eBay for online shopping and especially for gift card purchases when there’s discounted offers. If you shop on eBay then it’s probably best to use eBay gift cards, since you can usually get them at a 5% (5x UR) discount from office supply stores, or through gift card reselling websites. As a reminder, eBay gift cards can’t be used to purchase other gift cards.
Until now when you paid with an eBay gift card, the payment was processed through PayPal, even though you didn’t have to log in. Now eBay has begun allowing eBay gift cards or promo codes to be entered directly on their site, entirely without Paypal.
Gift card limits are still the same. You can use up to $2,000 in eBay gift cards per day and $5,000 per calendar month, and maximum of eight gift cards in a single transaction.
This is not major news especially since eBay gift cards can’t be used to purchase other gift cards any longer. But it could make it easier for some to use eBay gift cards, if they have PayPal issues. You can always get a better discount on eBay gift cards than what you would get by paying directly with a credit card on eBay, so you should always keep an eye out for gift card deals.
