Here's a New One: Hidden Seller ID on eBay
By: Ina Steiner
Have you ever viewed a Buyer's feedback record on eBay and seen a seller's user name and comment completely empty? It baffled even eBay moderators when it was pointed out in last week's chat session.
A user asked about a positive feedback rating containing no information - there was no feedback comment, and no seller's username.
"We have made some changes to Feedback Profiles due to privacy concerns," an eBay moderator wrote. "Depending on the type of item purchased or the type of listing, the feedback details can vary. As for the comment being blank, it's possible the buyer didn't add anything to their rating."
But the user said it was the blank seller's ID that was so strange - it wasn't even so much that it was masked, as eBay does with buyer's IDs - but that it was completely blank.
eBay masks buyer IDs on seller's feedback records (such as w***e), as they have since 2013
. But have you seen cases where a seller's
User ID was actually blank?
