Interesting news. I'm wondering what impact this will have on both companies.

It seemed to me that a good portion of the protection afforded on eBay were the result of the "integration" of the auction and payment/fulfillment.

Splitting them into separate trading companies is unlikely to affect the integration between the two, it will simply be continued as a commercial arrangement.

Paypal provides about 40% of Ebay's revenue stream. Ebay paid $1.5B for paypal, it's now estimated to be worth over $30b, not a bad investment. Carl Icahn has been pushing for this split for awhile, he got what he wanted. The interesting part of this is how it'll do against Apple Pay. Personally, I hope Paypal dies a slow and painful death.

Well at least when I give Paypal that 3%, I know it's not going to eBay along with the 10% they want from auctions..

Any stats on what % of PayPal's revenue stream is provided by eBay sales?

Because of all the other widely-used options that charge far less for using it? Or are you one of the people that only does local transactions in person with cash?

No cause PayPal protection is a joke and I have been burned by PayPal befor. So if they would go under would be nice to see.

Now, their new policy is going to extended buyer protection to 180 days for file disputed.

ANYTHING that Carl Icahn is even remotely associated with isn't going to benefit the average consumer (or even the average investor), this is certainly another corporate restructuring arrangement where he can quickly walk away with a ton of money. More than likely paypal fees will go up, and I wouldn't doubt that ebay fees will go up as well.

"If a buyer files a Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) Claim for an item they purchased from you, you will generally be required to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. You will not receive a refund of your PayPal fees. Further, if you lose a SNAD Claim because we, in our sole discretion, reasonably believe the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed). PayPal Seller protection will not cover your liability."

Seller's protection on Paypal is a joke
