Instant Gratification -- German-Style

I saw a cheap mountain bike on eBay and wanted to buy it. I've not bought anything from German eBay, so I need to sign up. I go through the whole process and get a screen that says they will send me a verification code. Ok, no problem. Via snail mail. Seriously? For an auction site? I shouldn't be surprised -- this is the country where the "last-minute" sale fares on train tickets stop being sold THREE DAYS before a trip. Sigh...
