eBay Private listings

Modified on Mon, 06 Apr 2020 at 04:24 PM

eBay allow sellers to use Private listings so buyers remain anonymous. Buyer's usernames are not displayed to other buyers viewing the private listing, but only displayed to the seller after listing ends. Typically used for high-priced or gift oriented items, so purchase information remains confidential.

Post/Revise Private listing

  • When posting to eBay, check "Private" to create a Private listing

  • When revising eBay listing(s):
    • Uncheck "Keep unchanged
    • Check / uncheck the Private checkbox to set listing(s) as private / non-private

  • go to Channels -> eBay Settings 
  • click Editnext to the relevant account name
  • check Default Private value to use Private listings by default
    • applies to all eBay listings when enabled, unless manually overridden on mass post/revise
