Joining the eBay Partner Network
This page will walk you through the steps needed to create your eBay Partner Network (ePN) account.
Six steps to creating your ePN account
Step 1: Go to any page on partnernetwork.ebay.com and click on the blue 'Sign Up' button in the upper-right corner.
Step 2: You will land on the signup page. Choose the language you use via the corresponding flag imagery in the upper-right hand corner. Then, scroll down and click the 'Sign in with eBay' button at the bottom of the page.
Step 3: On this Hello page, you will have the option of 'Sign into ebay' or 'create an account'.
'Sign into eBay'
If you already have an email address you use for your eBay account, it may also be used for your ePN account (so long as it has not already been used for an ePN account). Enter this email address in the 'Email or username' field and click the blue 'Continue' button to enter your password. Or, if your eBay account email address is linked to your Facebook, Google, or Apple domain, click the corresponding button.
'Create an Account'
If you do not already have an eBay account that you want to use for your ePN account, click on 'Create an account'.
On the ‘Create an account’ page, choose ‘Personal account’ unless you also plan to use this eBay account to sell items on eBay, in which case you would choose ‘Business account.’ Even if you are signing up for your affiliate business, you can create a ‘personal’ account with a ‘generic’ business email address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). You only need the ‘business account’ for an account that will be selling merchandise on eBay.
Fill out the name fields with the email address you would like to use to for ePN registration. Then, click the ‘Create account’ button at the bottom of the fields. Or, you may also use your email address that is linked to your Facebook, Google, or Apple domain, by clicking on the corresponding button.
Step 4: On this 'Sign Up' page, make sure to scroll down to the actual application. Then, fill out the following fields for: Your information, Company Information, and Promotional Information. Lastly, click the 'Sign Up' button at the bottom of the page.
Step 5: You will then see a confirmation note on the page and a seperate message should also be on its way to your email account with the message ‘Application Received’.
