Re: ebay



Could be eBay's way of getting seller to use their Managed Payments:


If you are not a seller, you can try canceling the link to eBay if it appears there in the Manage Automatic Payments in your Account settings > Payments and retry linking again after clearing browser cache and PayPal cookies and restarting device.



Kudos are greatly appreciated. Smiley Happy
