Making an immediate payment

Sellers sometimes require immediate payment to make sure an item is paid for before they ship it.

If you'd like to buy an item that requires immediate payment, you need to pay with PayPal using a credit card, bank card, or PayPal account, and be aware that another member could win the item by paying first.

To purchase an item using immediate payment:
  1. Click the Buy It Now button on the listing. You may need to sign in.

  2. Click the Commit to buy button.

  3. Review the total cost of the item, and then click the Pay now button.

  4. After you see the message confirming your payment, the item is yours.

Note: For items that require immediate payment and have both a starting bid price and a Buy It Now price, the Buy It Now price disappears when a bid is placed.
