Can anyone inform me as to what this Bidder 1/2/3... is all about on eBay? i.e http://offer.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... :MEWA:BIDN
£186 for '01 R36s?! :shock: There also seems to be Seller 1/2/3 etc. Is it something where you can bid up your own sale items? :? It's very annoying if so.

its simply that ebay decided to mask the ID of bidders, it is the same on all auctions as far as i know. Only the person selling the item can see their true id's.

ok thanks, but can't understand why? Often you can see who won what.

:idea: you can see the winning bidder on the item page after the auction has finished.
