What happens to my eBay account when I die?

Unfortunately, eBay does not offer any solutions for you to prepare your account prior to your death. eBay is happy however to remove the account of a deceased person.

How does eBay find out if someone has died?

eBay relies on family members or executor/s to notify it of a person’s passing. Once notified, eBay will validate and is happy to close the deceased person’s account.

How do you notify eBay of a death?

You can notify eBay by contacting them directly. eBay’s contact information can be easily found via Google.
