Someone had mentioned that this move may be because of PayPal restrictions on adult content, but I'm not entirely sure as I haven't checked PayPal's policy.

However, it does make more sense considering that PayPal is the main source of payments for the site, and it would be better than finding another service due to their long term business relationship.

Ebay owns PayPal.

Ebay owns PayPal.

Apparently not anymore, they spun it out to it’s own company in 2015.

I have a bunch of doujins I’m holding in my shopping cart on eBay, no way am I gonna be able to pay for all of them before this deadline. I wonder if they’ll all suddenly be delisted. Anyway, the seller on eBay who I got most of my doujins from over the last year or so stopped being able to take PayPal late last year, so I guess I should’ve known something like this was coming...

I’ve seen some Hentai DVD’s still listed but they don’t have pictures of the Box. That might be a good way to fly under EBay’s radar.

The policy doesn't come into effect until June 15th, so it's premature to be taking such measures.
