Linking your PayPal account to your eBay account

If you're already PayPal Verified, you can link your PayPal account to your eBay account to confirm your identity. Identity verification keeps eBay a safe place to buy and sell.

For Buyers

When you link your eBay and PayPal accounts together, buying on eBay gets easier. This is because, when you have linked accounts, and your seller accepts PayPal, you can use eBay's Checkout process to quickly pay for your item and have it despatched to your preferred address – all with a few clicks of your mouse.

For Sellers

Linking your eBay and PayPal accounts helps us recognise that you have completed the verification process – a requirement to sell on eBay. Plus on eBay sites like the US, UK and Singapore where eBay and PayPal are integrated, it helps simplify payment processes so it's easier and more convenient for your buyers.
