eBay checkout hits a "speed bump", and doesn't let customers pay our sellers. I am going to boycott eBay and PayPal until they formally resolve this issue.

Speaking as a seller, do not ship until you have the funds in your account. As a buyer, don't pay twice. Check your PayPal account if the amount was sent or not. Check BillMeLater if applicable.

There is a workaround, where we can send or receive payment directly just using one's email address, so request that from your eBay counterpart. Make sure to reference your eBay listing #. An eBay invoice will have the same "speed bump" faulting out, so use PayPal instead of eBay invoice, to avoid the "speed bump."

According to PayPal and eBay this has to do with a security messup in their system. Some people in the eBay forums have reported that this fixes itself after several days of waiting. But such a delay seems highly unwarranted. It makes me never want to use eBay again.
