Publishing Contact Information

If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.

All contact information acquired during the course of an eBay transaction is considered private and may not be published on any online public area including the following:

  • Web pages

  • Online forums

  • Newsgroups

  • About Me pages

  • Board Posts

  • Feedback Comments

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing or Want It Now post cancellation

  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

  • Limits placed on account privileges

  • Loss of PowerSeller status

  • Account suspension

eBay considers the following information personal and private:

  • Name

  • Address

  • Phone number

  • Email address

Note: User ID's are not considered personal contact information

How to report a violation of this policy:
Send us an email via the webform link below, and please provide:

  • URL of the site in question (Personal websites, About Me pages)

  • Email from newsgroup with full headers (Newsgroups)

  • URL linking to the post, the subject line of the post in question, and an actual copy of the post (Board Posts)

Note: If the contact information is in a feedback comment, please review our Feedback Removal Policy and report the comment through the email form on that page.

The success of eBay’s marketplace is dependent on trust and transparency. Providing contact information undermines both of these principles. Hence eBay doesnot permit to publish contact information.
