- You may need to disable your pop-up blocker to make sure you see all the information in Help & Contact.

- Don't use the Was this page helpful? box at the bottom of this page to to ask your question. We won't be able to respond to your message. To contact us, make sure you follow the instructions below.

Sending information to Customer Service

Sometimes the Customer Service team may ask you for more information to resolve a problem on your account. For example, if you made a payment for your seller fees but it isn't shown on your account, we might ask you to send us a copy of your bank or card statement.

The fastest and easiest way to send us your documents is to scan all of the documents and email them to us electronically. If we've asked you to send us documents, we should have sent you a link to another Help page where you can upload the documents. (There are different upload links for sending documents to different eBay teams.)

To upload your documents:
  1. Scan or take a digital photo of your documents.

  2. Save the documents on your computer (e.g. on your desktop or in My Documents).

  3. Go to the upload page and sign in. (Check the email we sent you for the link.)

  4. Click Browse to select the documents you've saved on your computer, then click Open to add them to the list.

  5. Choose the type of document(s) from the drop-down list, and enter a comment in the box on the right.

  6. Once you're ready, click Upload.

  7. Check your documents and click Send.

  • The total file size can't be more than 1 MB. You might need to re-size the document if it was scanned as a picture.

  • We can only accept files in .gif, .jpg and .png format. You might need to re-format your file.

  • Check your files before sending them to make sure that the scanned documents are complete and legible. You can delete files and re-scan them if necessary.

Note: So that we can resolve your issue as quickly as possible, we strongly encourage you to use our Upload feature to send us documents, or to use the Contact us button for all other queries. If you fax or post documents to us, your request may take significantly longer due to the additional processing time required.
