Dilip Rao, Managing Director for Sydney, Australia-based Paymate stated, "We have been working with eBay since late last year and are very pleased with the level of support and resources they have provided to enable us to go live today in the US. Our integration into eBay Checkout is a recognition of our global credentials as a safe and secure payment provider, making it easy for sellers and buyers to select Paymate as their preferred payment option."

Paymate has earned high marks for customer satisfaction among Australian online shoppers and within the local eBay community by making the payment process significantly easier, faster and more reliable. As examples, sellers are paid faster as payments go directly into their bank accounts; buyers on eBay.com can easily Checkout to purchase items via a simple but secure online credit card authorization that does not require them to register with Paymate; and buyers' financial details are held securely by Paymate and not shared with sellers.
Paymate customer and eBay.com PowerSeller Frank Timms, added, "We've been using Paymate since they started here about eight years ago, and they've consistently been very cooperative and reliable, and we've found their payment services extremely easy to use. On the very rare occasion that there's been an issue with a payment or a customer, they go out of their way to sort it out as quickly as possible. They astutely resolve any issues and rapidly notify the sellers and buyers. Everyone acknowledges and greatly appreciates their level of professionalism and personal service."
Paymate will initially offer a credit card payment service that US sellers can use to accept US dollar payments via Visa, MasterCard and Discover on eBay Checkout as well as other merchant websites. Paymate's risk assessment systems will help sellers avoid fraud while buyers will be fully protected against unauthorized payments and non-delivery of goods.
