eBay has transitioned from using PayPal to their own payment service so that's something people need to get used to nowadays. That is, sellers don't receive money instantly as it happened previously on their PayPal account, but rather it takes 2-3 days to clear to his/her bank account.

I know they sold off Paypal a while ago , but still on the payment options . Didn't know they were "transitioning " from Paypal as an option any time soon . Are you sure of your info ?

I think you can still pay via PayPal on eBay until June 2023. But I might be wrong

You can see on the link and they kind of make it mandatory to move on to MP.

MP includes fees so you don't have to pay twice. It's for the best.
