Our system enables you to keep your contact information private. We encourage you to always use Sell.com to communicate with the seller and avoid unnecessarily releasing your private information. In some cases sellers need your email address to send an payment invoice. If you wish to protect your email address, you can create a temporary free email account or visit the payment service directly to send payment.
Using Sell.com to negotiate maintains an official record of your communication with the seller. This record can be used as a reference for both you and the seller to use later, and as a helpful tool if an investigation is needed.
Some fraudulent sellers will only negotiate by email or instant messenger to avoid having a record of the transaction. Using Sell.com to communicate with the seller is a simple way you can protect yourself and help us make Sell.com safer.
