The eBay business model allows for flexibility in how you sell your goods.  It affords your company the opportunity to sell with a regular retail fixed price model like you would on Amazon.  In addition, you can sell by auction, to retail customers, or to sell wholesale as well.  You can combine all these different methods as well.  An eBay business account, or an eBay merchant account, is a good idea if you intend to sell products that you have purchased for resale, produced yourself, or sell in high volume.  When you open an eBay business accountyour business name will be displayed in your emails and invoices.  It is easier to get higher selling limits, and there are potential tax advantages and discounts on eBay fees.  Basically, if you are using eBay for business purposes as opposed to a hobby or occasional selling, than a business account is right for you.  You will need to be a registered business with a federal tax ID number.  The next step is opening a PayPal business account.  The third and final component would be to open an eBay store.  The eBay business account, PayPal business account, and eBay store work synergistically.  eBay for business is a highly effective way of branding and marketing both your company and products at a reasonable cost.  When looking at eBay Business account fees, there are no extra charges.  You open a regular eBay store and a PayPal business account.
