E-commerce has become one of the strongest and most remarkable points of the entire network. Users no longer have to go to physical stores to purchase all kinds of products, nor do they need to establish and deal with the eternal bureaucracy to put anything up for sale or even set up some type of online store. There are many platforms that are responsible for making it very easy when carrying out any type of buy-sell online.
One of the most popular that exists today, with permission from Amazon, it is eBay. This company, founded in 1995, has been offering one of the largest and most powerful marketplaces for more than a decade from all over the planet. Its system has the peculiarity of not offering only the traditional system of buying and selling products, since it also facilitates auctions in which those interested can make the bids they want through the internet.
Of course, this process is something that also applies to the other party, allowing users to put up for auction any item they want. But, there are those who prefer what other brands offer, who decide to close down that seller account they have because it is not profitable for them or they simply consider that eBay is no longer useful to them. For all of them it is more than important to know how to delete an eBay account, whether it is buying, selling, or both.
