What is an eBay Store?
An eBay Store is your all-in-one online business solution that helps you get more out of the eBay marketplace and the millions of buyers worldwide who shop on eBay.
You will get exclusive marketing and merchandising tools through the Seller Hub, plus customisation features to build a stronger brand presence to boost customers’ trust and confidence in you.
Additionally, an eBay Store subscription package provides sellers with a range of options for easy selling and maximum profitability.
There are several levels of an eBay Store. Choosing the right level for your account depends on the volume that you sell and how you plan to grow your business.
Benefits of the eBay Store include:

Your active eBay listings will appear automatically in your Store, but it’s up to you to decide how they are organised. Use the Store management tools to manage stock, create custom categories, showcase featured items and much more.
Think of your eBay Store as a physical store. How you display your products and arrange them is up to you. The more attractive the presentation, the more likely buyers will visit. You can organise your items within your custom Store categories, select items to feature, put items on sale and set your Store to holiday mode.
Simply select the Marketing tab in your Seller Hub to start managing your store.

Get organised with custom categories. Make it easier for buyers to navigate your Store and find items by using your own category structure. You can create up to 300 categories with up to three levels or subcategories (e.g. Sporting Goods > Golf > Balls
Your categories can be unique. They don't have to match eBay's category structure.
Here are some tips to get you started with category organisation:
Organise your listings according to brand, type and price.
Create special categories such as “New Arrivals” or “Clearance” to attract attention.
List items in two Store categories at no extra charge.
Add, edit, move and rename Store categories at any time.
If a category doesn’t have any listings, it won't appear in your Store. Any listings that are not assigned to a Store category will appear in a category named "Other Items".
Place your store on holiday
When you need to be away, you can put your store and listings “on hold.”
You can also automatically add automated messaging to listings so buyers know when you're out and when you'll be back.
If you’re going on holiday, there's no need to end your listings.
Simply turn on your Store's holiday settings to include these automated features:
Your holiday settings will remain on until you turn them off.
To turn on your Store's holiday settings, go to your Messages page and click Change settings on the top right side of the page.
You can also turn on your “out of office” response to let people who try to contact you know you’re away.
You will continue to be charged the normal fees (such as your Store subscription fee and any listing-related fees) while holiday settings are on.
