Searching for eBay members
In this article
In this article


If you're trying to decide who you want to do business with, or you're just trying to connect with another eBay member, you can search for the member by their user ID or email address. If you're involved in a current or recent transaction with a member, you can request the member's contact information.

Searching for an eBay member

You can search for an eBay member and we'll display the member's Feedback score, eBay Store (if available), and a link to their items for sale. To send a member a message, click the member's Feedback score and then click the Contact member link.

To search for a member:
  1. Click the Advanced link at the top of the eBay home page.

  2. In the Members section, click Find a member.

  3. Enter the member's user ID or email address.

    If you're not sure of the exact user ID, enter your closest guess. Your search results will include close matches.

  4. Enter the verification code.

  5. Click the Search button. (You may be asked to sign in.)

Note: For privacy reasons, if you enter an email address, we'll provide only limited information unless you've completed a transaction with the member in the last 60 days. If you haven't completed a transaction with the member, we'll confirm that the email address you entered belongs to an eBay member, and display that member's Feedback score.

Requesting a member's contact information

If you're involved in a current or recent transaction with another member, and you haven't been able to reach the member through email, you can request the member's contact information.

We'll send the contact information, including the member's name, city, and telephone number, to your registered email address. This information can be used only in accordance with our Privacy Policy. The member whose information you are requesting will also receive your contact information.

To request a member's contact information:
  1. Click the Advanced link at the top of the eBay home page.

  2. In the Members section on the left side of the page, click Find contact information.

  3. Enter the user ID of the member and the transaction's item number.

If you requested a member's contact information and it's not valid, please review our false or missing contact information policy to send us a report. Remember to keep your contact information up-to-date.
