What is an unverified member?
An unverified member has registered on eBay but hasn't verified their identity with us yet. Unverified members may transact and leave feedback on eBay just like any other user. But feedback left by unverified members will not count in feedback scores.
How will I recognize an unverified user?
Unverified members will have this sign (unverified) displayed next to their User ID.
Can I leave feedback for an unverified user?
Yes, you may leave feedback for an unverified user and, if you are verified, the feedback you leave will count in the unverified user's score. However, this score won't be displayed until the member is verified.
If I am unverified, can I leave feedback for others?
Yes, unverified members may leave feedback, but the feedback they leave for others won't count in the feedback score. To have feedback count, members must become verified. Learn more about becoming verified.
Will feedback from an unverified user ever count and affect my score?
No, feedback left by an unverified member will never count.
Can I withdraw or reply to feedback that doesn't count?
Yes, you may withdraw or reply to feedback that doesn't count.
I finished my transaction when I was a verified user but now I'm unverified. Will my feedback to my trading partner still count?
No, if you are unverified at the time you leave feedback, your feedback will not count.
I have feedback comments in my profile but no feedback score beside my User ID. Why?
Unverified members have no score beside their User ID. This allows all members to easily distinguish between verified and unverified members.
