eBay Strategies

No phone numbers allowed on with eBay description


eBay Description policy - Daytodayebay

Recent change with eBay disallowing sellers to include phone numbers on product description page is creating issues for DIY sellers already.   It is very normal for buyers to call sellers to find out if the part fits their equipment. But now buyers are not finding contact number while reading product description even though it is available in contact block.

So, buyers and sellers are simply getting around this issue by sending phone number in codes in text like below in messages:

  • get my 0 phone 7   5    1  number here 8   8   —- 9  — 6  —- 2   — 8
  • more savvy ones using tools like number to word and word to numbers

I saw this working last week when I met a Sheffield based seller. But it making life bit difficult for both buyers and sellers.

Is this change affecting you ?
