your private account info is not public, the profile page is meant to be a public information page

Is this the page you want to make private?

This is the page where most prospective buyers can find when you were last online/how active you are…

Your profile is one of the first things a buyer looks at to determine if you’re a credible seller. Including a profile picture goes a long way when it comes to encouraging buyers to purchase from your booth.

It will lead buyers to your items..

Your about me and your store or any info you wish buyers or other sellers to see as well as contact info, facebook business pages, and any website/blog you may media pages

It also contains any endorsements left by other sellers or buyers…

Most have that information public and truthfully, many will not purchase (at least I don’t) if there is no information on seller activity…

this one is mine..

as you can see I have been here a long time and have been quite active over the years

This page DOES NOT show any information that you do not wish to post (or private account information)

However, if you insist on hiding your public profile

Account Dashboard
Account Settings
Other options

Allow users to see your public profile Yes No

click Yes (counter intuitive)..I think the original statement years ago was Hide your public profile so the answer would have been yes

To Answer Brilliantly

Remember these tips:

  • Use links to other sources to support your opinions
  • Use examples where possible
  • Put yourself in the inquirers shoes: what extra info would be helpful?

Should I post a comment or an answer?

You can only post one answer, so make it count. Maybe your reply is more fitting as a comment instead?

Post an answer for:

  • Replies that directly and specifically answer the original question

Post a comment for:

  • "Thanks," "Me too," "I agree," or "Works for me" types of replies
  • When you would like the original poster to provide more details
  • When you have more to add to someone else's question or answer
