I need to change my billing preference for the Open eBay Apps Application subscription. How can I do it?


When you set up your payment method for your eBay fees or sign up for your Open eBay Apps subscription you would log into PayPal with a particular PayPal address and sign a preapproval agreement. After you complete this step, all your eBay fees or subscriptions will be automatically charged to this PayPal account. This article describes how to change your billing preferences.

Detailed Description

Changing the billing preference

In order to change the payment method or the PayPal account for the existing preapproval agreement you need to sign a new preapproval agreement with the new PayPal account. Please follow the steps below:



Note: The linked PayPal address that you see under Home > My eBay > My Account > PayPal Account page is not tied to the payment processing for the eBay seller account. Just changing this linked PayPal account to eBay will not automatically update the seller's payment preference. You have to follow the steps mentioned above for changing the payment preference for a seller account.
