eBay- How to register

When you register as an eBay member you can bid on and purchase items from all over the world. We won't share your personal information without your consent. Learn more about how we protect your personal information.

Registration steps

To register, go to the registration page, and follow these steps:

1. Enter your information.
You'll be asked to enter your name and email address, and to choose a password. If you're attempting to buy, sell, or contact a member, we may also ask you to provide contact information. 
When you click Submit, you're agreeing that you've accepted the User Agreement and User Privacy Notice.
2. Review your confirmation.
You'll see a confirmation message with your email address and an eBay username we've created for you. If you would like to change or correct any of your information, just go to My eBay, click the Account tab and go to Personal Information.
You're all set! We may need to ask you for a few more pieces of information as you start to buy, sell, or contact another member.

Registering two accounts

Some members find that having two accounts is a convenient way to organize a large number of items, or to sell different kinds of items. However, keep in mind that:

  • Both accounts must have different usernames and different email addresses.

  • The two accounts can never be used in the same listing.
