eBay PayPal plan on hold?

Auction site eBay (which I am a member of and have regularly bought and sold items on) has recently come under fire for its proposal to force users into conducting money transactions via its PayPal site, a move which is scheduled to come into force on 17 June. Those who have objected (including myself, although I have never mentioned it in this blog) claim that eBay are double dipping in their application of fees for both auction listings and receipt of payments via PayPal.

After considering submissions from eBay users, it appears that the ACCC have asked eBay to hold off on this policy change until the results of their own review. It remains to be seen what happens, but I hope that eBay heed the request and not attract the ire of already disillusioned members by ignoring it.
