For the US, Canada and Australia sites, users registered after January 17, 2007 are required to offer at least one safe payment method (i.e. PayPal/PaisaPay, or one of the credit cards specified in Item.PaymentMethods
If a seller has a
status, they are exempt from the requirement to offer at least one safe payment method when listing an item on a site that has the safe payment requirement.
The safe payment requirement also applies to two-category listings that have one ship-to or available-to location in the US, Canada, or Australia. The French Canadian (CAFR) site is a special case, because listings on the CAFR site with ship-to or available-to locations in Canada do not require a Safe Payment method, yet listings on the CAFR site with ship-to or available-to locations in the US or Australia do require a Safe Payment method.
The Business and Industrial, Motors, Real Estate, and Mature Audiences categories, and all listings that don't support the Item.PaymentMethods
field are exempt from this requirement. Therefore, listings in those categories do not require a safe payment method.
