eBay Phone Number 0843 515 9457

eBay contact numberThe eBay phone number puts you straight through to the helpful and friendly customer service staff at the world’s biggest auction house. Whether you’ve forgotten the password for your account, are having problems with a purchase or want to discuss setting yourself up as a ‘Power Seller’, this telephone number guarantees an immediate response.

Since it was founded in 1995, eBay has grown from simply a second-hand marketplace where individual sellers and buyers traded used goods, vintage clothing and collectables. The majority of the items currently listed on the site are brand new, and are increasingly being sold via a fixed ‘But It Now’ price rather than the auction system of old. Nowadays, not only private individuals sell on eBay; you’ll find small boutiques and specialist dealers, world-famous fashion designers, high street names from Argos to Tesco, even blue-chip multinationals such as IBM.

Part of eBay’s success and reputation has come from its strong focus on reassuring and protecting both buyer and seller alike. eBay takes great pains to ensure that all items listed are legal, genuine and accurately described; in the event of any problems of this type, the telephone number is the fastest way to get in touch.

eBay and Paypal

An invaluable aid for buyers and sellers alike is eBay’s well-known feedback system. An unbiased and absolutely transparent guide to users’ reliability, honesty and responsiveness, this feature not only helps to reassure inexperienced buyers, but adds continually to sellers’ reputations. eBay now also owns Paypal, the world’s best-known online payment system with over 123 million accounts worldwide; using Paypal eliminates the need to share potentially sensitive financial information, and eBay encourages its use to reinforce eBay’s own Buyer Protection system.

As eBay’s mobile apps go from strength to strength, with over 120 million downloads to date, the eBay contact number is increasingly the quickest, most efficient way to get in touch with customer service staff at ‘the world’s online marketplace’.

Other ways to get in touch with eBay

eBay customer serviceThe eBay phone number remains the quickest and easiest way to get in touch with the company. They have however begun to offer a variety of different ways to get in touch with them. This has mainly remained through their online support portals – with both e-mail and live-chat being offer through their help and support centre here (please be aware that you need to log-in before you can use either service)

In addition, the company still deal with questions directed to them through traditional mail. Most letters posted to them are to do with longstanding complaints, or are for further documentation requested of users by eBay customer services. Their mail support team can be reached at their head office address, which is as follows:

Hotham House,
1 Heron Square,

As with any form of mail, the turnaround for queries directed to their head office can be incredibly slow and tedious. It is for this reason that it is recommended that all questions be first directed to the eBay contact number.
