How to set up your eBay Store

1. Select “My eBay” at the top of most eBay pages

2. Hover over the “Account” tab

3. Select the “Subscriptions” link at the bottom of the pop-up menu

4. Under “Available Subscriptions”, choose the eBay store level that you want and select “Subscribe”

Naming your eBay store

Your eBay Store name plays an important role – it is through this name that you create a brand for yourself.

Remember – The name you choose will determine your Store’s website address (or “URL”).

For example, if your Store’s name is “Fine Jewelry”, your Store’s URL will be: “http://stores.ebay.com/fine-jewelry” eBay will take out special characters (apostrophes, spaces, &, !, $, etc.), add hyphens between words, and make all letters lowercase.

Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding upon your eBay Store name

It can be your eBay username as long as it meets the requirements above

It must start and end with a letter or number

It can’t start with four or more consecutive letter As

It can’t start with an e or E followed by more than a single number

It can’t contain the following characters: <, >, or @

It can’t be the username of another eBay member

It can’t contain “www” anywhere in the name

It can’t contain two or more consecutive spaces or non-alphanumeric characters

It can’t end with a top-level domain abbreviation used on the internet such as .com, .co.uk, .net, etc.

It can’t be a name that is identical or confusingly similar to another company’s name which is protected by trademark law. Also, you can’t use a name that contains the word “eBay” or one that is confusingly similar to that name. See our Intellectual property and the VeRO program policy for more information

Tip: Choose a name that immediately tells buyers what you sell. For example, a straightforward name such as “Ben’s Computers” will be more helpful to buyers than a creative name such as “Zebra Park.” This will also help Web search engines find your Store when buyers are looking for the kinds of products you sell.
