Taking PayPal, But Not Credit Cards

Ebay has started forcing sellers that accept Paypal to accept credit card payments even if they only want to accept payment through bank-to-bank instant transfer.

I’m not a business. I just use Ebay to get rid of stuff around the house. I cannot afford to pay the Paypal charges for accepting credit card purchase. Ebay will cancel your listing if you state “you only accept bank-to-bank instant transfer” but will accept “prefers bank-to-bank instant transfer”. Is there a way around this issue? It’s come to the point that it’s not worth it for me to list items on Ebay.

Currently, you must accept Paypal payments funded with a credit card. Or accept credit cards with your own merchant account, and not take PayPal at all.
