Someone just purchased an item from me, and is asking for my email address... Should I or do I send them it?

You can but all transactions are done through ebay itself. Don't accept money if it isn't. Could cause issues if they bitch about something.

If someone wants your email they probably want to bitch. That said does eBay not attach your personal info to every auction won regardless?

I follow a strict code. If someone wants to bitch about shipping fees after they've agreed to pay them, I use the non-paying bidder complaint and shut down the sale. Hasn't happened in a while but it gets real old fast when someone buys your item and then decides is the time to complain about the well-posted in advance shipping. Lots of "$7 is excessive. Let's bring that down a bit... postage can't be more than $3." Assholes.

I only accept PayPal as payment for my eBay store. Makes it so easy!

you can send messages and send invoices through eBay itself, so he shouldn't need your email address.

You have a store, Scott?

These days I pretty much just sell gaming and electronic stuff when I'm done with it, but occasionally I see stuff related to gaming or comics or just anything I know as a retailer is an unbelievable bargain while shopping and use eBay to flip it, but I don't take it very seriously. The last 2 years I think I've done 3 batches of items. I used to peek around pawn shops and find the odd thing I could turn $20 into $50 with, but that's only profitable as a business venture if I consider my time worthless.

It's not my own personal store, it's one of the businesses that I look after.

I manage a music distribution company (3 divisions) of various products and eBay is just one of the many ways we sell items.

eBay has been hacked, prompting recommendations to everyone to change their passwords:
