The eBay Community is made up of sellers, buyers and eBay employees coming together to share, connect and learn.
Here, you’ll find many features such as the Knowledge Base, Discussion Boards, Seller News – featuring Announcements and eBay for Business blog - and Groups - all built with you in mind.
On the discussion boards, Community members ask questions and exchange advice and tips with each other. Whether you are an enthusiast, a business owner or just getting started with your eBay experience - Community is a place for you.
While eBay staff are present on the boards, this is primarily a peer-to-peer support Community and eBay cannot provide direct customer support to you via these boards.
If you are new to the eBay Community, taking a look at our community guidelines, is a great way to start. Knowing what is and is not allowed will be very helpful as you connect with other eBay Community members.
Most importantly though, we hope you enjoy taking part in your Community and we're glad you're here!
Community and You
Before you dive in, below are tips about joining the conversation.
Rules of the Road
We ask all of our members to follow a few simple rules to help keep the discussion boards safe and productive.
