Can I register my business?
Register your business by clicking the 'Want to open an account for your business?' link on the registration page. If you already have a private account, you can change it to a business account in My eBay. Go to the Account tab, and click on 'Personal Information'.
Should you register as a business?
Choose a business account if you:
Sell items that you bought to resell.
Sell items that you produced yourself to sell.
Sell a large amount of goods on a regular basis.
Sell new items that you bought but don’t use personally.
Sell items as a trading assistant.
Buy items for your business.
If you aren’t sure whether you should register as a business or as an individual, it’s best to get legal advice.
What are the advantages of a business account?
As a business seller you can:
Register with a company name. Your company name will be displayed in invoices, emails, and other buyer communications.
Display contact details, return policies, and terms and conditions in your listings.
Provide the value-added tax (VAT) percentage when selling with the Sell Your Item form.
