False or missing contact information policy
eBay members are required to provide accurate contact information such as their name, address, or telephone number when registering on eBay. eBay members are not allowed to use a fax or disconnected number as a telephone number. As an online marketplace we enable persons not known to each other to conclude contracts with each other and exchange services. To ensure a secure environment for all eBay users, we need your phone number. By means of this number, we conduct risk assessments and can quickly take the necessary protection and investigation measures, among other things, to prevent fraudulent activities for your protection.
Make sure you follow these guidelines. If you don't, you may be subject to a range of actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Buyers and sellers need to be able to communicate with each other. If you provide incorrect contact information, it makes it difficult for your buyer or seller to get in touch with you. This makes it more likely that you'll have problems like unpaid items, eBay Money Back Guarantee cases, and negative Feedback.
