Sign up for eBay- So Easy
Setting up an eBay account is simple but there are a few important steps you should know because some items cannot be changed after an eBay account is opened. I’ve posted a short video clip below to walk you through the registration process and the important steps are below the video.
When filling in the personal information- name, address, phone number, email address, etc., use legitimate info so eBay can contact you for verification or if there is a problem with account. If you are opening an eBay account to buy a few items or just clean out the garage, just about any User ID will work. However, I wouldn’t recommend using your full name (i.e. maryjanedoe21) when choosing a user ID either. If you are planning to run an online business, try to pick a name related to your niche or theme (i.e. nascarstuff45). This Link will take you to the rules for creating an eBay User ID.
When picking a password and secret question, make sure you save it in a file in your computer or somewhere accessible- this may save time and hassle later if you need them to access your account. Enter the verification code, check the box next to “I agree that” and click on the “Continue” button.
After clicking the “Continue” Button, check your email (including junk mail) for an email from eBay with the subject: “Complete your eBay registration” and click on the “Activate Now” button. Congratulations! You have successfully registered to eBay.
