Updating billing settings for sellers

You can change or update your billing information, including your address, billing currency and automatic payment method, whenever you need to. You can also link your eBay and PayPal accounts, or change the PayPal account you use on eBay.

Add or update your billing address

Your eBay billing address is the main contact address on your account. We also refer to it as your registered address. You'll find this information in the Addresses - opens in new window or tab section of your account settings, and it appears under the Bill to section of your monthly invoice.

Here's how to change your billing address:

  1. Go to Addresses - opens in new window or tab in the Account section of My eBay.
  2. Beside the Registration address, select Change.
  3. On the Registration Information page, enter your new address, and then select Change registration information.

Change or update your automatic payment method

This is the payment method we use to charge your seller fees. You can use the steps below to update your credit or debit card details, update your bank account details, or change which PayPal account you use to pay your eBay fees.

Here's how to update your automatic payment method:

  1. Go to your Seller account - opens in new window or tab page in My eBay.
  2. Under Payment methods for Seller Fees, select Change automatic payment method.
  3. Choose your preferred payment method.

If you choose to pay by PayPal, you'll be redirected to the PayPal site to complete the process. If you choose direct debit or credit card, you'll need to enter your bank or card details, and select Save.

If you choose direct debit or credit/debit card, you'll need to enter your bank or card details. We'll need to verify your card – so if it's declined during verification, while making payment or at some other time, you'll need to contact the issuer of your card. You usually can't use a pre-paid credit card to verify your account.

Tip
To make sure we use the new information for your next invoice, update your payment details at least two business days before your invoice date. If an automatic payment didn't go through, you can make a one-time payment.

Here's how to link your accounts:

  1. Go to Account - opens in new window or tab in My eBay and select PayPal account.
  2. Choose Link my PayPal account.
  3. You'll be asked to login to PayPal to complete the process.

Change the PayPal account you use on eBay

To change the PayPal account you use on eBay, go to your Account - opens in new window or tab in My eBay, and select PayPal account. You'll be taken to PayPal to update your information.

Change your billing currency

You can change the currency you use to pay your selling fees once a year. You can pay in:

  • Australian dollars (AUD)
  • US dollars (USD)
  • Canadian dollars (CAD)
  • Euro (EUR)
  • Japanese yen (JPY)

Tip
You won't be able to change your currency if there are any overdue fees on your account.

After you've chosen your new currency, all fees related to new listings you create will be billed in your new currency. However, any fees related to existing listings will still be billed in your old currency. You'll receive separate invoices for each, until all the fees related to your old currency have been paid.

Go to your My eBay - opens in new window or tab to update your contact address and your seller account details for paying eBay fees.
