Opening an Ebay shop

How do I go about setting one up?

Is this relatively easy to do? Can you do this with any Ebay account or are there restrictions?

Yes, you can do it on any eBay account. I know it was easy because I did it without knowing

Cool. Will give it a go when I get home.

I assume you have to give a name?

I think it will end up being whatever your members ID is -

you can give it a name but be warned theres totally different fee structure for a shop and i think a minmum amount you need to sell each month, a friend has a shop so know a little but not in and outs

Thanks for the info. I just want to save on the increasing listing fees and am considering this as an option.

i used to have a shop on ebay selling tshirt transfers & found in the end it wasn't worth having if you take into account your shop fees, ebay listing fees, ebay sold item fees & paypal fees. so i'd say unless you are selling lots of higher priced items it probably isn't worth it

if you want to save on fees try ebid.net

ive just closed my shop due to new fees. Was paying £6 per month for basic with 6-10p insertion fees. They now want £15 per month and 40p to list BIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its free listing this wkend for auction items starting at 99p if that helps anyone?

I listed an item and added into the description "i reserve the right to cancel as i have it advertised elsewhere" and they ended it as it was a breach of there policy. Which im sure it is but i see lots of them when we were looking for caravans a while back so how do they get away with it or was i reported
