For those of us who live on the Internet, it's hard to image that new people come online everyday. For instance, my mom. She's nearly 70, bless her heart. The other day she called asking me to place a bid for her on eBay. She didn't have an account, and she wasn't sure how to register for one. Which made me think that there were a lot of other people's mom's out there in the same boat. So, for those new to the Internet, or for those of you with a mom who needs hand holding, here's a simple, easy-to-follow tutorial on how to register for an eBay account:
1) Click here to register.
You’ll notice that the site is scgi.ebay.com - that’s because it is a secure site at eBay!
2) Enter your contact information.
Use a valid email address because eBay will be sending you a confirmation email.
3) Create your unique user ID and password.
If you select an account that is already registered, eBay will inform you by requesting you pick a new username. They'll even recommend a few.
4) Agree to the terms and click ‘Register’
Click the ‘Agree’ box.
5) Congratulations! You’ve registered an account on eBay! Now confirm it.
Log into your email and click on the link found in the message eBay just sent you. It really is that simple! Now, bid on something. I hope you win!
