Preliminary information

In fact, you should know that it is possible to find a seller on eBay only if you have made purchases from them in the recent past or if you remember the subject number of an advertisement.

In addition, a seller can also be found by their username. However, since eBay allows you to change your user ID every 30 days, that search may not work if the seller you are interested in has changed their name.



Finally, I would like to point out that in the past eBay also allowed the search for a seller through his email address, but unfortunately the function has not been active for some time.

How to search for a shop on eBay

Be your intention è look for a shop on eBay, you will be happy to know that the procedure is almost identical to the one I indicated in the previous paragraphs to find a seller. In fact, an eBay shop is nothing more than the "showcase" of the items offered for sale by a professional seller.

From computer

The prima soluzione che puoi prendere in considerazione per look for a shop on eBay is to find the seller by their username, as I indicated in the previous lines of this guide. You should know, however, that when opening a shop on eBay it is possible to use a different name than your user ID.

So if you know the name of the shop but not the seller's name and you search by username, you won't get any results. If this is your case, linked to the eBay main page, click on the item advanced, top right, and locate the section Shops in the left sidebar.

Adesso, select the option By shop name, enter the name of the store you are looking for in the field Enter the store name or keywords and click on the button Search, to view the search results. Then locate the store you are interested in, click on his name, to access the shop window, and that's it.

It will be useful to know that, unlike searching for a seller who needs the exact username, you can also use the keywords you remember to search for a store. To understand better, let's take a practical example: if the shop you are looking for is called "Antonio's sweaters and trousers"But you just remember that in the name of the shop in question there is the word"sweaters“, You can use this keyword for your search. In the displayed results, you will find all the shops that contain the word “shirts” in their name, including the shop of your interest.

Give smartphone and tablet

If you are wondering if it is possible search for a store on eBay from smartphones and tablets, I am sorry to tell you that it is not possible to do this using the eBay app, even if you know the exact name of the shop you are interested in.

However, you can use the browser installed on your device (eg. Chrome your android e Safari on iOS / iPadOS), connect to the eBay official website and select the option Classic eBay site, visible at the bottom of the page. By doing so, you can activate the desktop version of the eBay site and follow the prompts to search for a store on eBay from your computer.
