    I want to register an account with eBay but I have a problem. I'm 17 and you have to be 18 to get an account. However in the user Agreement it says you can be under 18 if you use it in conjunction with and under the supervision of an adult.

    Now I want to do this by myself but am not sure if they check up on you to check you actually are 18. I want to use my own bank account and don't understand if i can do that as long as an adult watche sme or whatever or if it has to be there account.

    I tried to find a way to contact them but to contact them about registration it seems you have to be a registered member.

    Anyone under 18 have any experience with eBay? Or with registering with it. Any help from anyone would be great.

    Really? You have to be 18? I guess I would've never known though because I'm 18 and all *cough* *cough*

    i would assume you have a credit card? they may find out that way. when you enter the date for your birthday ( i dont remember if you do that or not) then change it but do be careful, ebay does keep up with stuff. You may not get caugth right off the bat, or ever but, try it.

    I signed up under my mum's name. Then changed the name when I turned 18. They dont know.

    Put your mum's DOB & name, etc...
