A seller with an eBay Store can showcase their listings in one customized, searchable location. A seller can create up to three levels of custom categories for their stores, which will make it easier for prospective buyers to find the types of items that they are looking for. For additional information about opening and managing an eBay store, refer to Store subscriptions and benefits.

For sellers interested in opening up an eBay Store, we recommend viewing the Open an eBay Store help topic, followed by the Set up your store page in Seller Center.

There are no available APIs to create a seller's eBay store.

Vacation/time away

eBay store sellers can put their store/listings temporarily on hold when they go on vacation or have other scheduled time away. This is configured using the Time Away preferences in My eBay.
