Title: ebay selling
Post by: spinner on May 09, 2010, 04:53:18 PM
I'm sure someone here is a Registered Ebay seller. Curious as to the experience. Also curious as to why Ebay wants a credit card number to register as a 'seller'.

Spin, this page should give you the info.  You can alternatively do this by phone instead of credit card.

"Step 2) Confirm your identity

To help provide a safe environment for the eBay community, you need to provide a credit or debit card to create a seller’s account or verify your identity by phone. In some cases, you’ll also need to provide your bank account information. Your personal information is protected by eBay's Privacy Policy and encrypted by the industry standard SSL technology."

I did mine by phone.  ;)

"Verify your identity by phone

This option allows you to sell immediately on eBay. Enter your telephone number as indicated (land lines only) and select whether you want to receive the call now (you'll receive the call within 20 seconds) or in 2 minutes. You will get an automated call with a 4-digit verification number at the telephone number you specified. Enter the 4-digit verification number on eBay and continue your registration."

We have set up a separate bank account with no overdraft facility & keep a minimal amount (£50) for all our internet purchases, if we need something more expensive we add more to the account then purchase. You will need some where for money to be deposited if you sell so it is also useful for this.
