Paying for Items With eBay Coupons
Nicky Pilkington

There’s a novel idea afoot nowadays: electronic discount coupons.

This only goes to show that most good marketing ideas can be adopted for
the internet. Instead of cutting coupons out from newspapers or carton
eBay gives out electronic copies of such that are fast and easy to use.

eBay routinely sends out coupons that members can use to pay for items
are payable via PayPal. These coupons signify specified discounts to
purchases made with PayPal.

Using Coupons

To use an eBay Coupon one must buy an item where the seller accepts PayPal
as a payment method. Upon payment of the item using PayPal, an opportunity
will be given to the buyer to enter a coupon redemption code and receive

Sharing Coupons

Some coupons from eBay can be shared with other people. Some can be used
only the owner. If the coupon indicates that only a specific email address
may use that coupon, it may not be shared.

Coupons and your eBay and PayPal accounts

To use the coupons the owner must have a PayPal and an eBay account. If
the owner does not have these accounts, he or she must sign up for them
to avail
of the discounts. PayPal lets you pay securely over the Internet using a
credit card, checking account, or a PayPal account balance.

Important restrictions

Upon winning an eBay auction, one is required to purchase the item even if
his coupons are invalid for that type of sale.

Also, coupons can only be used one at a time. This means that Gift
Certificates, single coupons, or eBay Anything Points are valid for one
time, one at a time.

One more restriction is that the coupons cannot be used for

Items must also meet all coupon requirements and must be paid for in ten
days from the closing of the auction on eBay.

Coupons have expiry dates. The owner should take note of the expiry dates
noted on the coupons.

Sellers may also configure their listings to accept coupons. To accomplish
this, the seller must accept PayPal as a payment mode. If a coupon is used
in the purchase of one of the seller’s items, the value of the coupon is
forwarded to the seller as its equivalent in regular currency.
