Creating About Me eBay Page

In: my ebay

20 Jun 2009

If you buy or sell a lot of items on eBay, wouldn’t it be nice to have a web page you could show to other users? You know, a page that would tell all those buyers and sellers you deal with all about yourself and the items you have for sale?

Well, eBay lets you create such a page. It’s called About Me.

eBay’s About Me page is a personal web page just for you. It’s a great way to personalize the eBay experience, tell a little about yourself, and inspire bidder trust. It’s also easy to do and no HTML coding necessary.

You can view any user’s About Me page by clicking the Me icon next to his or her user name on any item listing page. (If no icon is displayed, that user doesn’t have an About Me page.) You can also search for other users’ About Me pages by clicking the Advanced Search link at the top of eBay’s home page and using the Find a Member search option.

You don’t have to be a web programmer to create your own About Me page. All you have to do is click a few options and fill in some blanks, and you’re ready to go.

Follow these steps:

  1. On any eBay page, click the Services link (above the Navigation Bar), and then click About Me.
  2. When the main About Me page appears, as shown in, click the Create Your Page button.
  3. When the Choose Your Editing Options page appears, check the Use Our Easy Step-by-Step Process option, and then click the Continue button. If you’re an HTML wizard and want to code your own About Me page, select the Enter Your Own HTML Code option instead.
  4. When the Enter Page Content page appears, as shown in, start by entering a title for your About Me page.
  5. On the same page, you can now enter two paragraphs of information, using the supplied formatting controls or (by clicking the Enter Your Own HTML link) with HTML codes.
  6. Still on the same page, enter a link to any picture you want to include on your page, as well as an optional title for the picture.
  7. In the Show Your eBay Activity section, choose how many feedback comments and current auction listings you want to display.
  8. If you want to include any links to external web pages, enter them in the Add Links section.
  9. When you’re done entering all this information on the Enter Page Content page, click the Continue button.
  10. When the Preview and Submit page appears, as shown in, choose a layout for your page, and then click the Submit button.

You’ll now see a confirmation page, which includes a link to your new About Me page. Click this link to view your new page.
