I'm a bit confused about a recent ebay transaction. Someone bought something from me collection only, and the following day turned up at my house with the money. I hadn't received any contact from the buyer asking for my address, but did receive an email from ebay which was an automated response to a contact request from the buyer; but this only gave my mobile number, not my address. It was fine, transaction smooth and friendly buyer, but I don't understand how they got my address? Is it sent automatically to buyers?
I don't know if this is what's happened but when I sell stuff on ebay I can click on the buyers details and their address comes up (same as their paypal address) on their details page with their feedback. .. maybe something like that?
Hi, I have been through account settings and can't find anywhere that it gives you an option to show/not show buyers your address, other than "payment address" if you accept payment other than paypal, which I don't.
I had a shop for a while and one night this guy rang up, wasn't a customer, but he was looking for a different seller and eBay gave him my home number, I always give my mobile number, never home number, but years ago when I first opened my eBay account they asked for it because I use a gmail account not an ISP email.
