Customising your profile

Every eBay member has a profile. Your profile is your own space on eBay where other members can learn about you and your interests.

What you can do with your profile

Your profile contains basic information like your user ID and recent Feedback, and a link to any items you have for sale. You can add photos and a description to personalise it and share a bit about yourself.

  • Add custom content: Choose a cover photo and a profile photo for other members to see when they visit. To look their best, cover photos should be 1200 pixels wide x 270 pixels tall, and up to 4MB in size.

  • Promote yourself: Enter a description to tell others about yourself, your interests, and what inspires you.

You can share a link to your profile, or find other members' profiles using the profile URL:<User ID>. For example, if your user ID were ebayseller1, your profile URL would be:
