Making your Feedback Profile public (or private)

Feedback Profiles are public by default. Members have the option of making their Feedback Profiles private. However, it’s important to remember that keeping your profile public builds trust by letting potential trading partners see what others have said about you.

When you choose the “private” setting for your Feedback Profile:

  • You can’t sell items on eBay.

  • Only the Feedback comments are hidden from other members. Your Feedback Score - the number of positive, neutral, and negative Feedback ratings you’ve received – is still public.

To change the privacy setting on your Feedback Profile:
  1. Visit the Feedback Forum.

  2. Click the “Make Feedback Public or Private” link on the right side of the page. You may be asked to sign in.

  3. Select the option you prefer and click the Save button.
