For those who haven't followed the saga...
eBay spun off PayPal a couple years ago (2015 - https://fortune.com/2015/06/26/ebay...-split-date/
) it was the classic spin off of lower margin businesses to make the stock more attractive. The deal included some period of continuing to be eBay's prefered payment system.
But ever since the spin, eBay has wanted to reduced the amount of fees they pay (directly or indirectly) to PayPal.
eBay has some kind of deal with Adyen (big in Europe and looking to expand) https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/01/why...petitor.html
If your payment is through Adyen, then the Adyen Terms and Conditions apply https://www.adyen.com/legal/list-re...d-prohibited
Adyen reportedly prohibits coin sales (although I'm no longer seeing them in the above T&C), so eBay sellers processing payments through Adyen supposedly can't sell coins.
