Seller Shocked eBay Published Home Address in Marketing Email
I just discovered a privacy issue that can tag along with the follow/followers privacy post. I find this issue extremely disturbing.
I frequently send out announcements when I set a sale or promotion. I decided to look at my complete announcement that went out and I scrolled all the way to the bottom. To my shock, my complete address was listed beneath eBay's address!
Why in the world does eBay need to print my complete address? The city and state would suffice if need be. So, people who follow me and may have never bought anything from me, now have my personal home address! I'm sure many other sellers work from home too.
All a follower has to do is mail something to my store name at that address and it will be delivered!
Please everyone, tell eBay to implement privacy. It's one thing if I decide to show my personal address on a packing slip or return address to someone who is actually buying something from me but a completely different issue when eBay volunteers my address to anyone who chooses to follow me by signing up to receive newsletters and promotion/sale notices.
