What’s the best way to send my item?

Simply select a service of your choice and set a cost in our listing tool. By offering more than one delivery option, you'll be able to attract different types of buyers. Once the item has sold, you can purchase a label from eBay, which is pre-filled with your buyer’s address. You'll also save time by not having to queue. Pack your item, apply the label, and simply take it to the nearest drop-off location.

Can I sell locally on eBay?

You can! When creating your listing, you can offer 'local collection' by selecting it as a delivery option in the postage section of our listing tool.

How will the buyer pay for my item?

eBay manages payments so that you can sell and get paid in one place and buyers have more ways to pay. A payment method will be added when you list your item. To help provide a safe experience, we only allow payment methods that offer strong protection for buyers and sellers.

How should I choose my listing price?

How you price your item can depend on how you prefer to sell it, whether as an Auction or as a Buy it now listing. Choosing a lower starting price for auctions can help create more interest. If you use Best Offer, buyers will make you offers that you can accept or decline.

How does eBay protect sellers?

We understand that things can happen that are out of your control as a seller. When they do, we have your back. We protect you against abusive buyers, don’t make changes to the terms for your listing, and investigate sales issues to ensure fair outcomes for both sides.

What can I sell on eBay?

You can sell almost anything, from homemade goods to used or unused items from your closet. We do restrict items that violate any laws, or infringe on intellectual property.

How do I create an account?

To get started, select List an item. We’ll help you create and verify your account, and set up payment information, during your first listing. You’ll want to have your preferred payment account details on hand and be ready to receive a call or text on your phone for verification during this step.
