What Do I Need To Set Up My Seller Account? 

You are only a couple of steps away from starting to sell on Discogs. Here is what you need to check to get started: 

  • Verified Paypal account: A requirement to sell on Discogs is to have a Verified PayPal account. This is not just a Paypal account but indicates that the "seller has provided additional evidence of their identity to PayPal by passing key security checks and completing the PayPal Verification process." If you have issues with the account verification or connecting your account, please contact Paypal support directly.
  • Seller Settings: If you haven't done so already, go ahead and create a Discogs account (you can use your existing buyer's account as well) and set up your seller settings. Fill in your address, the payment methods you wish to accept, and the terms of your shipping, including shipping costs to the various countries you send to. More information regarding complete Seller Terms can be found here: What Are Seller Terms? If available in your country, you can connect to our new PayPal payments solution. For more information, please review our New PayPal Payments Solution FAQ
  • Complete Shipping Policies: As of November 1, 2020, your listings will only be shown on the Marketplace if you have complete Shipping Policies that cover the area where the buyer is ordering from. More detailed information can be found here: What Are Shipping Policies And How To Use Them.
