Your password should be at least six (6) characters in length (20 characters maximum). Your password should contain both numbers (0-9) and letters (A-Z, a-z), and may also contain non-alphanumeric characters such as underscores (_), commas (,), dollar signs ($), etc. Spaces are not allowed.

Tips for creating a good password:
  • Your password should not contain personal or family data in any way (e.g., your name, your street name, your child's name, etc.)
  • Avoid common passwords like "abc123", "a123456", "jesus1", "qwerty1", etc.
  • Don't use a variation of your banking or ATM PIN number.
  • Don't use the same password you use on other websites, like eBay.
  • The longer your password is, the more difficult it is for others to guess. We suggest you create a password that is 8 characters or more, and includes upper-case and lower-case letters, and punctuation.
  • An example of a good password: gBuyS74$ (please don't use this for your password).

Protect yourself from identity theft:
  • Never share your password with others. Sell.com will never ask for your password via email. If another member on Sell.com says they need your password, or you receive an email asking for your password, report the incident immediately.
  • Change your password from time to time. Once you're signed in, it's easy to change your password via your Profile page.
