In the 2019 eBay Fall Seller Update, the company revealed that multi-user access would become available to U.S. seller within a short time. The feature went live a few days ago for U.S. accounts who have opted into Seller Hub.
eBay’s multi-user feature enables sellers to grant access to listings within their Seller Hub in a more private and secure way.
Sellers can now add employees or delegates to perform seller activities on their behalf without giving full access to their eBay account.
Here’s How It Works
Sellers invite employees as users, granting each user-specific permissions and access for tasks like editing, drafting and publishing listings.
Employees then create an account and can access the Seller Hub in their own view. This provides both users — the seller and the employee — added security and privacy for their eBay account.
Multi-user access will enable sellers to become more efficient when they allow employees or to perform routine listing maintenance functions on the marketplace.
And for some small business owners that use out-sourced help to create their listings, this new feature will give them the ability to onboard new listings faster and more efficiently as the contractor can securely and easily create the listings right in the eBay seller’s account.
To learn more about multi-user access, eBay suggests sellers read the engineering blog post that describes how this new feature on the marketplace.
