    Remember if it is a business account then they will only see your business name and information.

    They only see your address once they receive the item (it would be the return address) other then that no they don't.

    They see it when they pay since they will deal with PayPal too. It is a combination of eBay/PayPal

    At first all the buyer can see from the seller's information is the item location that you entered into your listing, the actual city location from shipment by looking at the tracking number, and whatever return address that you put on the package.

    However the buyer can see all of the seller's information if the buyer requests the seller's information from eBay.

    At that point eBay will send the buyer and the seller an even exchange it will be an email with all information listed for both parties including name, address, city, phone number, etc.

    All of your details including phone number, email, home address, and name. If you ever bought something from ebay you should know this. The only exception is when someone has a business account and then it would show business info.
