Changing your ID to one registered in the US is nearly impossible and you'd probably have to open a new ID.  You'd need a US address and phone number to do that I think.

 

Changing where you list is only a matter of logging off ebay UK and then logging on to ebay US using the same ID.

 

If you say what you want to do, it should be possible to offer better advice.

Angler, a mutual contact of ours from Maryland registered a new eBay id just using a certain UK address. I know that is the reverse of what the OP is suggesting, but it stilll puzzles me why a UK phone no. was not required.

Interesting Colin.  I would have thought he'd need a UK phone number too.

I did wonder if the phone check would not be required if the address also matched that of another UK id? Although that would be a bit worrying to say the least.
