I previously covered the difference Between a Private & a Business eBay Account in an earlier article here, however if you’ve already got an eBay account with decent (ie 100%) feedback already on the account then changing the account type and using this resource to help “bump” you up in reputation can be a shrewd move and only takes a few moments.
Also similarly, if you wish to turn account back to a private account, you can do so too on this page.
Steps to Change your eBay Account Type
- Go to http://cgi4.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ChangeRegistrationAccountType
- Sign-in if required to do so
- Select ‘Private Account’ or “Business Account” as applicable
- Press confirm
There may be other steps you may need to take, such as entering your business details, including a telephone number, linking your PayPal account and/or setting up direct debit information for paying fees.
Once you’ve gone through step 4 in this list, you’ll be taken through the steps you’ll need to complete the extra information in.
It’s really that easy.
