eBay is the largest and the most popular auction site with over 1 million users from all over the world. More than 7 million products of different categories are sold here every day.
If you want to sell something or buy at a good price, go to eBay. Literally everything is sold here. Sometimes people buy really weird things on this website. For example, an Australian once sold a piece of paper with the word “The” written on it.
Before that eBay was available in English only but now it is translated into different languages. We will help you to sign up for this platform and to check the details of customer registration.
Step-by-Step Guide on Signing up for eBay
Go to ebay.com. You will see the registration form to be filled in with Latin characters. Don’t use the password you have already used before. The eBay system is sensitive to such things. You can also choose to sign up with your Facebook or Google account.
As soon as the form is completed, click Register. The first stage is over now.
Let’s go next. Click your user name at the top of the website and select “Account settings”.
On the left you will see the sections to be filled in:
Personal Information – specify your additional personal information (for example, phone number) and payment details. Click “Update your automatic payment method” and fill in the form:
Addresses – submit your contact address and delivery address.
Communication Preferences – select the type of notifications you are going to get about your purchases and sales (for sellers). You can also update the settings for communication with other users and choose what advertisements you want to get.
Site Preferences – set the payments, sales, etc.
Here you can block some customers from taking part in bidding or buying your products (this function is available for sellers). This information would be useful for you if you decided to be a seller.
Seller Dashboard – this section is designated especially for sellers.
PayPal Account – is an important point because to make purchases on eBay, you will have to sign up for the PayPal payment system. To do it, go to paypal.com. Click “Sign up” and create an account in this system.
NB: you will need your ID and an identification code.
If you already have a PayPal account, click “Link my PayPal account”. Your eBay account will be linked to your PayPal account.
As you can see, it is easy to sign up for eBay. You will be able to make deals on the site, take part in bidding and make economical purchases.
Have a good shopping!
