How to change your eBay username

When people start to use eBay, the service automatically gives them a username. It consists of letters, numbers, and dashes that are entirely unmemorable. Of course, in case you just want to buy some products there, it won’t be so important, although, if you have a desire to be a seller on the service, a solid name will make it better.

If you have already signed in the profile and now you have a stellar name, to change the username you will only need to go to your profile and change the name. So if you want to know how to do that, keep reading.
