COVID-19 is a complex and fast-moving situation, and we know it may be more challenging to run your eBay business now because of disruptions to your daily routines.
As we’ve seen, this is not a problem that can be solved by one person or group alone. Government leaders around the world are taking action and many decisions will lead to immediate changes in how you manage and maintain your business, where and how you can ship packages, and how to receive packages. Here you’ll learn about these matters as it relates to eBay as well as other ways we are supporting you.

How is Seller Help different from Seller Hub, My eBay, or the Resolution Center?
Seller Help is a self-service resource to manage your refunds, returns, and “Item not received” and “Item not as described” claims in one convenient location. We’ll add more functionality in the future, such as managing unpaid items, canceled transactions, and chargebacks. As before, you can use these features in Seller Hub, My eBay, and the Resolution Center. Seller Help gives you an easier way to access all the functionality in one place.
Do I have to use Seller Help?
No. You can still use Seller Hub, My eBay, and the Resolution Center, just as before. However, the same functionality is available in Seller Help. If you find that Seller Help isn’t for you, there’s no need to opt out—simply stop using it.
