Setting up a seller account

Setup an eBay Seller Account

To get started, simply register for an eBay account if you haven’t already.

eBay will automatically generate a unique Username based on the name you entered in the previous steps. This is what will display to other users when you bid, buy, or sell on eBay. Either continue with the username generated by eBay or you can customise it here.

Getting Verified

Now that you’ve registered an eBay account you can commence buying at any time, but to start selling you’ll need verify your account as an eBay Seller. To verify your account:

  1. Navigate to your eBay Account Settings.

  2. On the My eBay page, select Subscriptions.

  3. Select any of the subscribe links to be taken to the Subscription page.

    New to eBay Selling? As a channel partner Neto can provide a free 6 month featured store subscription for new eBay accounts. Contact us to find out how we can help.

  4. Enter your address details and click Continue.

  5. On the Subscription selection page, click the active sellers account link to activate your sellers account.

  6. Sign back into the eBay account you just created.

  7. Confirm your contact information either by call or by text.

  8. Select your preferred payment type.

  9. Once confirmed, you will see a screen asking to list an item. Ignore this and navigate back to the Subscription selection page by clicking on the eBay logo. You’ll notice the red warning advising to activate your seller account is not longer present. Choose a Subscription.

  10. Select your eBay Store Name and click Continue.

Please Note: The eBay Store Name you select will be searchable in external search engines including Google, Bing and Yahoo. We suggest making your eBay Store Name your business or trading name, and that it does not include underscores, hyphens or other punctuation as this will make it difficult for people to search for you.

  1. Review your subscription and click Submit.
