    Yes that is what I am talking about, you must be logged into your ebay account when viewing this page obviously.

    Just wondering how to do this so I don't have to break apart the source and analyse how it is done, I'm pretty busy and don't have the time.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah basically you just have to be an ebay store owner.

    It's just because he has an eBay store...due to eBay's coding, not his, you have the option to visit his store, and eBay personalizes that message with your username.

    Interesting, I have never seen it before the listing you linked me to but I imagine it's something scripted through one of the eBay API's... probably the same code that makes it so eBay displays "Hi, _________" at the top of eBay when you are logged in.

    As others have said, maybe adding something related to an ebay store auto adds it to your listings.

    I have an ebay store but don't have any of the store addons put into my listings.
