eBay Third-Party Checkout to be Retired
eBay has finally announced the end of its much-maligned third-party checkout redirect, following rumours of its demise going back over two years.
As of 30th June 2011, eBay Checkout will be the only checkout process for buyers on eBay. Third-party software providers have been briefed and are working to move over to eBay Checkout before the deadline.
The removal of third-party checkout redirect is in line with planned new features for eBay's own checkout such as delivery rate tables and the new eBay shopping basket currently being tested on ebay.co.uk.
