Integrating Your eBay Account

by Mike Silvia

There are several ways to integrate your account into Sports Card Forum to expose your eBay listings to thousands of sports card collectors. Regardless if you are a major eBay seller, or someone that rarely uses eBay, I recommend that all members take a few minutes to integrate their account into Sports Card Forum. It will help promote your auctions in your posting profile and we will promote your auctions throughout the site. It takes just a few minutes and it will guarantee more traffic to your auctions.

1. The first thing you want to do is update your profile with your eBay ID.

  1. Log into
  2. Click on User CP at the top right of the site.
  3. On the left side under My Settings, click on Edit Profile.
  4. Scroll down to the Additional Information section.
  5. In the eBay field type in your eBay ID and at the bottom click Save Changes.

This will ensure that an eBay logo, eBay ID and link to your eBay page is promoted.

2. Next, set up your eBay Profile Tab. This will pull your favorite keywords and display live auctions in your profile. If you are constantly looking for a favorite player or set, this is a great way to see auctions without visiting eBay. You can also display your auctions only.

  1. Log into
  2. Click on User CP at the top right of the site.
  3. On the left side, scroll down to eBay Tools and click on eBay Search Settings.
  4. Fill out the form. You can list only your items or items from other sellers. Click Save Search Settings.

In my example, I used Ladanian Tomlinson and all sellers as my search keywords. Here is what my eBay tab looks like my profile.

Again, make sure you put your eBay ID in the Sellers area on the form to ensure only your auctions show up.

That’s it! Two minutes of your time ensures your eBay ID shows up in your posting profile every time you show up and your auctions show up when people visit your profile.
