Answered by Robert Dupre

To change your bank account details on eBay, you need to follow a few simple steps. Here’s a detailed guide on how to do it:

1. Go to My eBay: First, go to the eBay website and log in to your account. Once you’re logged in, click on “My eBay” at the top right corner of the page. This will take you to your account dashboard.

2. Select Account: On the left-hand side of the page, you will see a menu. Scroll down and find the “Account” section. Click on it to expand the options.

3. Personal Information: Under the Account section, you’ll find various options. Look for “Personal information” and click on it. This will take you to a new page where you can edit your personal details.

4. Edit Account Type: On the Personal Information page, you’ll see your current account type. Next to it, there will be an “Edit” button. Click on it to proceed.

5. Change to Business Account: After clicking on Edit, a pop-up window will appear. In this window, you can change your account type. Select “Business account” from the options provided.

6. Submit: Once you’ve selected the Business account option, click on the “Submit” button to save your changes. eBay may prompt you to provide additional information or verify your account to complete the process. Follow any on-screen instructions to proceed.

That’s it! You’ve successfully changed your bank account details on eBay. Remember, if you’re changing to a business account, you may need to provide additional information such as your business name, tax ID, or payment methods.

It’s important to note that eBay has certain policies and requirements for business accounts, so make sure you familiarize yourself with those to ensure a smooth transition.

Personal Experience:
I recently had to change my bank account details on eBay when I decided to switch my account from a personal to a business account. I followed the steps mentioned above, and the process was quite straightforward.

However, I did have to provide some additional information, such as my business name and tax ID, as eBay required those details for a business account. Once I submitted the changes, eBay reviewed my information and approved the switch within a few days.

The process was relatively hassle-free, and I appreciate that eBay provides an easy way to update and manage account information.
