Knowing your buyer


We want all your sales to be safe and successful. Here are some ways to help make your sale go smoothly.

Icons

The chart below explains the icons that a buyer can have next to their username.

Icon Meaning

The user has been a registered eBay user for 30 days or less

The user has been a registered eBay user for 30 days or less.

The user has changed their username within the last 30 days

The user has changed their username within the last 30 days.

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.
