  2. Under Personal information and privacy, select Request your eBay data.

If you don’t have an eBay account, you can still submit a request - opens in new window or tab for a copy of your data. eBay is required to verify the identity of everyone to whom we release personal information. Please include your first name, last name, country of residence, and the email address you used for any guest transactions you made.

The POI/POA you provide will be used solely for the purpose of identity verification related to this transaction (i.e. the release of personal information) and will be processed and stored in accordance with our User Privacy Notice.
