Default OT: eBay has decided to change their eMail format

ebay just continues to piss me off more and more each day.

I have been a seller on eBay for 14 years. Each night I would go thru my eMails from eBay to see which items I sold. I recorded each item sold along with the buyer's email address and other info included in eMail. The buyer's eMail address was the driving force of my record keeping.

eBay decided last night to no longer include the buyer's eMail address in any of the notifications. This decision will create a nightmare for me as far as record keeping.

Does anyone have any idea on how to get the buyer's eMail address from a sale?

So frustrating to run a business on eBay. It's either do it their way or no way.

I thought eBay stopped showing the buyer's email address to sellers years ago. You could find it on Paypal but I think they have stopped showing it too

I figured out how to export the data need using Sixbit. With a few eXcel macros, I am able to get what I need.

Screw eBay. There is always a workaround.

Default Feebay Email

Feebay continues to piss off sellers and you know what? Sellers are going to open up their own Web Stores. Pride goeth before the Fall.

I don't know if this only applies if you have a Store subscription but if I go (from the eBay home page) to SELL (upper right - takes you to Seller Hub) -> Orders, then click on the Record number next to the order all the info you need is there.

Moosedog is correct. Just click on record and retrieve the email. They will disappear after 45 days though.

A little bit off-topic, but my Ebay search emails have returned to normal today. I used to get around 30 Ebay search emails a day, but for the last couple weeks I would only get 5 or so. Today I received 31 search emails.

I noticed similar, but I just figured listing traffic may have been light over the July 4th holiday....

I mainly buy on eBay and I used to get the sellers email address in the PayPal receipt. Now it is hit or miss. It was nice to have the contact info but I guess eBay doesn’t want anyone to contact off the website. Might miss out on making some fees. Geez, eBay is so annoying

I haven't done a transaction with those yutzes in about 10 years. Looks like they have the same issues only worse.
