How do I close my eBay account?


Question: How do I close my eBay account?
Answer: Closing your eBay account is a large and often unnecessary step. If you’re simply unsatisfied with something that has occurred on eBay, you may instead be satisfied by leaving feedback giving your opinion or by contacting eBay for help in resolving your concern or problem.

If you’re sure you want to close your eBay account, however, you can so quite easily by following these steps:

  1. Sign in to eBay if you haven’t already.

  2. Click on the “My eBay” link at the top of any eBay page.

  3. In My eBay, scroll down until you see the “Related Links” box on the lower-left side of the page.

  4. In the “Related Links” box, click on the “Close My Account” link. You will be shown some additional information about closing your eBay account and provided with a link through which this can be accomplished.

Alternatively, you can simply go directly to the form through which accounts can be closed. Beware that there may be terms or caveats associated with account closure, in keeping with the agreement into which you entered when you joined eBay and accepted eBay’s terms and conditions.

You should therefore read about permanently closing your eBay account before you attempt to do so, to be sure that closing your account will have the desired effect.
