Tips for Setting up
Multiple eBay Accounts

copyright by Cheryl L. Coccaro

Setting up multiple eBay accounts is a wise move, especially if you are both a buyer and a seller. I currently have four different accounts and use them to separate items I sell from those I buy, and business items from personal. I recommend using separate accounts for purchases, to sell unwanted items, or even extra supplies.

It's an especially good idea to use separate accounts for purchasing jewelry supplies and selling your finished jewelry. Otherwise, if you use only one account for both activities, anyone can look in the feedback section under your seller's name and research through the auctions you've won. All they have to do is click on the item number by the feedback left for you to see who you purchased the supplies from, what you bought, and how much you paid.

It's easy and free to . All you need is a separate email address for each account.

(Note: If you use a free email account, like Hot Mail, eBay will ask you for a different credit card number that matches your name, and/or a separate checking account. Using a free checking account when offered at your bank is perfect for this. eBay will then make 2 small deposits into this account and you would do the verification back to them in a couple days after the deposits show in your bank account.)

Continue through the registration process and sign up as a Seller. The only disadvantage of starting with a new account and username is you will have a starting feedback of zero. You will be more successful selling on eBay when your feedback number has reached 15-25. Start small and grow big.

To link this account to your current PayPal account, just go to PayPal, sign in, and click on Profile. Look for the words " e-mail " and add this new address. You can have up to 6 different email addresses for each PayPal account.

If you've never signed up for PayPal, you can sign up with here.

When listing items to sell on this new account, be sure to use this new email address in the payment section. Regulations at both eBay and PayPal change constantly, so the above steps may be altered slightly for you. Why not give it a try?

Happy Selling!
