Dear eBay Customer!

During our regularly schedule account maintenance and verification we have detected a slight error in your billing information on file with eBay. Your card will be used for identification only and will not be charged at any time. By having this type of identification from all users, eBay remains a safe place to buy and sell. Setting up a seller account necessitates valid credit or debit card and checking account information.
For automatic payments, your credit card will normally be charged 5 to 7 days after you receive your invoice. Enter and submit the required information. Your account may be suspended for non-payment, and you may be responsible for collection costs.
If your account information is not update, your ability to sell or bid on eBay will become restricted.

The purpose of this verification is to ensure that your eBay account has not been fraudulently used and to combat the fraud from our community. We appreciate your support and understanding, as we work together to keep eBay a safe place to trade.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
