Why does eBay not trust PayPal?

I’m registered with eBay germany, and for a few weeks now, I have been receiving reminders that my credit card has expired.

Funny enough, the only way to get rid of that message seems to be to enter a new credit card. I don’t want to do that. eBay receives my payment through direct debit, which should be good enough – why do they need a second payment option.

Given that they seem to require you to do PayPal for lots of places or items (iPhones in germany, for example), why don’t they offer PayPal as an option for my fees?

Strange.
