eBay Changes Approach To Displaying Bidder IDs

eBayBidders.jpgCurrently, if you look at the bidding history on an eBay Australia auction, the individual bidders will be listed as "Bidder 1", "Bidder 2" and so on. As of February 3, that will change: eBay will now use a random selection of two characters from each bidder's name, an approach already used on other country-specific eBay sites. (Sellers, of course, will be able to access actual bidder details). While this will probably help "give members a sense of who is bidding, while still protecting the bidders' identities", as eBay argues, it won't make it much easier to tell if you keep losing to the same rival collector.
