eBay Groups are a great way to connect with other members who share your interests. Join an existing group, or lead your own.

Features and benefits

When you participate in an eBay Group, you can:

  • Create an online dialogue about your favorite eBay topic in the Group discussion boards.

  • Create and display your own announcements on the Group's Home page.

  • Invite members to join your group.

Finding a group

To get to the eBay Groups, click the Community link at the bottom of most eBay pages, and then click the Groups link.

To find a group, you can browse or search:

  • Browse: If you don't have a particular group in mind, browse through the group directory to find one that looks interesting.

  • Search: You can also find a group by typing a keyword in the search box on the Groups page.

Joining or leaving a group

To join an existing group: When you find a group that interests you, click the Join Group button.

To leave a group: Go to your group page. Under the Group Options link, click the Leave Group link.
