eBay Phone Number for Buyers
Buyers are provided with several ways to purchase items, including bidding to win an item, or purchasing it without bidding using, “Buy It Now”. Some, but not all items can be returned for a refund, depending on the settings that the seller has selected. eBay does offer assistance when a problem arises, and users can contact eBay by dialling 0870 280 5116 to report a problem. Alternately, a problem can be reported via the Resolution Center online. Both buyers and sellers can use the center to report problems.
eBay help for buyers is available for:
- Understanding buying basics
Paying for items
Canceling a purchase or bid
Resolving buying problems
Shipping and Returns
Help is also available for payments. Most items are paid for via PayPal. However, in some cases, other forms of payment may be used. PayPal is generally considered to be the safest way to pay for purchases. Since the two companies have no split, the first point of contact for purchasing problems will be eBay, as they are responsible for solving problems between buyers and sellers. The dispute resolution process should be used to try to work out any problems before going to PayPal to attempt to get a refund.
eBay Contact Number for Sellers
Sellers are allowed to sell a wide variety of items, but there are some limits. To find out whether or not the item you wish to sell is allowed, use eBay contact number 0870 280 5116 to connect with a sales specialist. Items such as weapons, drugs, and other illegal items cannot be sold. There are also some items that are legal, but still are not allowed. The disallowed list is rather small though, and most items can be listed for auction or sale on the site without any problems.
There are two basic selling options available Auction Format and Fixed Price Format. Auction listings allow eBay users to bid on items, with items being sold to the highest bidder. Fixed price listings allow users to simply purchase an item outright at the listed price, without any need to place any bids. Shipping and handling costs, if applicable, are shown upfront with both methods.

Resolving selling problems
Selling fees are a topic that often causes confusion for sellers. It is important to understand the fee structure when selling items on eBay. Should you have questions about the fees associated with listing and selling items, contact eBay via phone prior to listing your items. Note that both listing and final value fees may apply. eBay typically runs free listing promotions, providing sellers with a set number of free listings each month. Some months, additional free listings are provided.
Final value fees apply in all cases, but these may be refundable under certain circumstances when an item does not sell. The most common FVF is 10% of the total amount that the item sold for, whether it sold using the auction format or fixed price format. Higher sell prices often result in lower final value fees. The complete free structure can be found on the website, and eBay customer service can also provide you with information on what the fees are for specific circumstances.
eBay Help for Account Management
There is no cost associated with creating an account on eBay. It only takes a few minutes to register an account or set up a selling account. If you are interested in opening an eBay store, contact eBay to learn more about the associated costs. eBay stores are billing on a monthly basis, and selling fees do still apply. However, the fees may be less and stores do provide a set number of free listings. Stores are providing in levels, with options being available for businesses of all sizes.
Account help is also available for updating account information, account security, billing, invoices, and resolving account problems. Sellers are billed selling fees on a monthly basis, and it is possible to set up automated payments for these fees. Since eBay and PayPal are linked, be careful when responding to any emails about your account. If you have any questions whatsoever about an email that you have received, contact eBay to ask if it came from them. Only sign into your account from the actual eBay website.
