Create a Facebook Page
If you don’t yet have a Facebook business page and only a Facebook profile you can easily create one in a few simple steps.
Let’s start out by logging into our Facebook account.
If you don’t have a Facebook account click on “Sign up for Facebook” to create your account.
Once you’re logged in just visit Facebook’s “Create A Page” area at: www.facebook.com/pages/create.
Let’s choose a category for our page, the best category for your page as an eBay seller is “Brand or Product”. Unless you have a brick-and-mortar shop, which in that case you should choose “Local Business or Place”.
In the drop down menu let’s choose a sub-category for our page. So, for instance if you sell jewelry choose the “Watches/Jewelry” sub-category.
Choose a name for your page, if you’re not sure don’t worry you will always be able to change it later.
After reading Facebook’s page terms click on “Get Started”.
In the next window you will be able to add a profile picture, or logo to your page. The size for the image should be 180X180px.
Next, upload a cover photo for your page.
That’s it! You will now be sent to your new page and you will be able to add your Facebook store to it.
