Re: Using Pay with Chip

Joe Giovanelli

Hello, Eleni,

I'm not sure I have solid answers.

I can't see why you would need to sign into your Ebay account because money to the seller would come from Pay With Chip.

I can see where things can bet sticky when dealing with a seller who can only accept money from PayPal.

My best advice is that you should write directly to PWC:

Usually, I purchase Buy it Now items anyway, so this is good. But
must the seller accept credit or debit cards for this to work? Some
only work with Paypal. Also, do I need to sign into Ebay, considering
that I already have an account there?

When using this facility, payment is made using your credit card. The card
must have an embedded chip because it is read with a card reader which can
only read the information stored on the chip.

In the case of Ebay, the system only works with the Buy Now products. I'm
told that plans are in the works to be able to handle bids.

Amazon is another case. You must subscribe to the Amazon feature in Pay With
Chip. It is $49 a year. I think there's a way to buy it for a month at a
time. I do not know if you must be a Prime member.

I hope I answered everything.

Subject: [TechTalk] Using Pay with Chip

Has anyone here used Pay with Chip? If so, can you please share your
experiences? I also have a few questions. When you first run it, you
enter information such as your name and address. You can shop at
various stores, including Ebay and Amazon. I have accounts with both,
with my information already saved. On Ebay, I usually use Paypal,
which is connected to my account. How would that work? In other
words, would I sign into Ebay with this software or would it bypass
everything and use the data saved in Pay with Chip and send my card
information as I enter it into the reader? Also, how could I tell if
an item was Buy it Now or a bid? How would bids work? Is there
anything else that I should know about this? I am considering it as
an option because Ebay isn't working well with Firefox (this seems to
be a browser issue, as even my sighted friend couldn't change the
option from Best Match to Price+Shipping Lowest) and Iherb, where I
shop all the time, seems not to be working correctly either now,
though that appears to be a screen reader issue, as he was able to
order for me.

For those interested, here is the website. Note that I am not
affiliated with the company.
