Found 2nd Aug 2008
Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew how i can set up a second ebay account. I want to use one for buying and one for selling but i think i will probably need a second email address, would i be able to add another email address to my virgin media account and register that or not ?

Thanks.

Why would you want that unless you just wanted it to rip people off?

d.o.d.g.y.

I have two, what's dodgy about that?

Admittedly it was when you could get negged as a buyer, less point now.

if youre buying bargains to sell then you wont want everyone seeing how much youve bought it for

the answer is yes you can have more than 1 account at present BUT ebay are changing the rules I hear and soon will be merging all accounts into 1

Well if your all good and play nicely then you don't need two accounts. But maybe I'm just too nice for my own good!:-D

You did when you could get a neg for leaving a neg.

You don't really need 2 now, but it saves on paying ebay fees to set a reserve.

Lots of people have 2 accounts, 1 for selling and 1 for buying.

Some more info on 2 accounts here:

You can create a 2nd Virgin email address and use that.
If you use Paypal don't forget to add the new email address to your paypal account, under profile, add email (something like that)

I only ever buy to be honest. If I have something I dont want anymore my friends or family have it.

2 seperate people in the same household can hold accounts, you can have upto 15 different email addresses with your virgin media account
