What you need to know when changing your eBay username

When you change your username, eBay will display your new username across the platform. Your account information and feedback score will be transferred to your new name.

If you’re creating a new username, make sure it’s at least six characters long. It can contain letters, numbers and some symbols. However, you cannot add a space or any of the following characters to your username: @, &, ‘, (, ), <, >

Also keep in mind that you can only change your eBay username once every 30 days.
