About this Step by Step Guide

After thousands of eBay customers came to GetHuman in search of an answer to this problem, along with others, we decide it was high time to publish instructions.

So we put together this guide to try to help. It has 2 step(s) to it. It takes an average of 35 minutes to get through these steps according to other users, including time spent working through each step and contacting eBay. And we tried to include a checklist of information you'll need when you try to fix this yourself. Best of luck and please let us know if you successfully resolve your issue with this.

Why does GetHuman Write How-to Guides for eBay Problems?
