Step 1. Create an eBay account

Before you begin the registration process, choose a proper account type: Individual (to sell on eBay as a private individual) or Business (to sell on eBay as a legal entity, that is, a company or a sole proprietor).

How to create a business account

If you're a registered business seller (Sole proprietor/Single member LLC, Corporation/Multi member LLC, Partnership), select Create a business account on the registration page. We'll ask for some additional details, like your business name, type, and address, as well as any beneficial owners, officers, directors or account managers.

  1. Go to the Registration page
  2. Enter your name and email address
  3. Choose a password
  4. Select Create account


After you fill out the form, you may need to verify the email with a security code.


How to create a personal account

If you’re not a registered business seller, create a personal eBay account by filling in the Registration form, or by using your Facebook or Google account as well as your Apple ID.


Step 2. Verify your account details

When you register as an eBay seller, your account details need to be verified. After that you’ll receive payouts directly to your bank account or to your Payoneer account depending on the country of your registration.
