Domain

Your 22Stores domain

When you create your store you get a default domain for your store that is based on your eBay user ID and looks like this:

ebayuserID.22stores.com

You can keep using this URL for your store, but we do advise that you get your own custom domain since this can help you build your store name and your brand.
