Why should I open an eBay Store?

Opening an eBay Store is the best way to help dedicated sellers maximize their online business. Sellers with an eBay Store gain access to tools that enable them to develop their own brand and maximize sales.

Among the benefits:

  • Customized design - Gain complete control over the look and feel of your Store (colors, graphics, content, etc.).  

  • Value listings - List items for lower fees and longer durations.  

  • Product organization – Use custom categories to organize and display your items.  

  • Buyer searches - Buyers can perform keyword searches within your Store.  

  • Cross-promotions - Control which of your other items are cross-promoted when buyers view, bid on, or win an item.

  • Unique URL - Your Store has its own Web address (URL) that you can promote to buyers.  

  • Sales reports - Free sales and visitor traffic reports help inform your business strategies.
