Can sellers see my email address?

[ Edited ]

 

I made an offer on an item a while ago. Now the seller is contacting me through my email address. I didn't think sellers could see that? How have they managed to get it?

As soon as you bid on something or make an offer aboth seller and buyer can request eaxh others contact details which will include phone number,email address and location.A copy of the info will be sent to both parties.

 

There was a time where a bidders email address was shown to the seller once a bid was placed but im not sure if that is still the case.

Business sellers can see it on a buyer who has either won an auction or selected buy it now.
Personal sellers only see the email used via PayPal v,(the email you use to pay with may be different to your eBay email).

Both types of sellers can apply for a buyer's details: name address number.
