Your eBay profile is more than just a buying and selling platform; it's a reflection of your interests, your transactions, and perhaps even your small business. You've spent years curating your feedback score and building your reputation. But have you ever wondered what would happen to your eBay account when you're no longer around?

As a global e-commerce leader, eBay understands the significance of your digital footprint. Currently, eBay offers one primary option: Account Deactivation.

Account Deactivation

In the event of a user's death, eBay allows for the deactivation of the deceased user's account. This process requires a notification from a family member or an executor along with a death certificate. Once deactivated, all data will be erased, and the account will cease to exist.

While this process is secure and respects user privacy, it requires action from grieving family members and results in the loss of potentially valuable digital assets. This is where Snug comes in to assist.

At Snug, we understand the importance of preserving and managing digital legacies. We strive to help you create comprehensive estate plans and organize all of life's details, including your digital presence, in one secure place.

Through Snug, you can guide your loved ones on how to handle your eBay account after your passing. Whether you want your account deactivated or transferred to someone else, Snug ensures your wishes are clearly communicated, reducing potential confusion or misunderstanding during a difficult time.

But Snug's services go beyond managing your eBay account after death. We provide a comprehensive approach to estate planning, assisting you in managing your digital assets, financial affairs, and end-of-life wishes in a secure and user-friendly platform.

Our services include:

  1. Digital Estate Planning: We assist you in cataloguing your digital footprint, including social media accounts, emails, and online banking, and decide what happens to them after your death.
  2. Document Storage: Store your important documents such as wills, trusts, and insurance policies in our secure platform.
  3. End-of-Life Planning: Record your wishes for funeral arrangements, organ donation, and other end-of-life decisions.
  4. Legacy Projects: Create projects that capture your life story and values to pass on to future generations.

In today's digital age, managing your online presence after death is as crucial as any other end-of-life arrangement. With Snug, you can confidently navigate this reality, ensuring your digital legacy aligns with your wishes and provides comfort and clarity for your loved ones.

Snug is about more than planning for the end; it's about celebrating life and ensuring that your legacy lives on, both in the hearts of those you leave behind and in the digital world.
