-> eBay had its own electronic payment processing system (forgot the name),
-> but when PayPal proved much more popular they bought it, folded their ->
system into it and abandoned their original system.

That system was called Bill Point. Yahoo also had one that was called Yahoo
Pay Direct. Part of the Yahoo Wallet System. Think it folded along with
YooHoo Auctions.
