Whenever I’ve received a Best Offer on eBay the User ID has had the last three characters starred out. For instance if I made a Best Offer my User ID would appear as mountc*** instead of mountcomp.
That’s still the case when reviewing a best offer on eBay. However my latest Best Offers have yet to appear in My Messages but have appeared in my email inbox. What’s better is that the Best Offer emails received since 13th October in my email inbox contain the full User ID of the potential buyer allowing me to fully check out their previous buying history and feedback.
Personally I think it’s a good move, but as far as eBay are concerned it has to be a bit of a mistake. Not much point concealing the User ID on eBay if I already know it from the email is there? 😀
