Can I register my business?
Register your business here, or click the Want to open an account for your company? link on the main registration page. If you already have an individual account, you can change it to a business account.
Should you register as a business?
You might want to choose a business account if you:
Sell items that you have bought to resell.
Sell items you have produced yourself to sell.
Sell a large amount of items on a regular basis.
Sell new items that you bought but don’t use personally.
Buy items for your business.
If you're not sure whether to register as a business or as an individual, contact your legal advisor.
What are the benefits of registering as a business?
With a business account, you can:
Register with a company name. Your company name will be displayed in invoices, emails, and other buyer communications.
Display contact details, return policies, and terms and conditions in your listings.
Possibly receive some tax advantages.
If you're outside the U.S. and Canada, you can provide the value-added tax (VAT) percentage when you list items using the form on eBay. You can also provide eBay with your VAT identification number and receive net invoices on your eBay fees.
