Knowing your buyer
The chart below explains the icons that a buyer can have next to their username.
Limits on buyers
For each of your listings, you can limit or block who can bid on or purchase your items. You can create your own list of eBay members who aren't allowed to bid on or buy your items. Before blocking a buyer, we recommend that you send an email explaining why you won't accept bids or Buy It Now purchases from them in the future.
You can also select buyer requirements for your listings by going to the Seller Preferences section in My eBay. These requirements are based on characteristics, such as buyers who are registered in countries you don't ship to, rather than specific usernames.
