There are lots of reasons a bidder may want to be made anonymous. 🕵️
Maybe they are trying to win an item as a surprise for a loved one, maybe they're shy, or maybe they're trying to avoid a bidding war with their in-laws! Whatever the reason, you can anonymize (or reveal) a bidder's name by following these steps.
How to make a bidder anonymous:
Click on the name of your Campaign in the left-hand menu bar.
Click on the AUCTION tab.
Click on BIDDERS.
Click the three dots [...] to the right of the bidder's status.
Click ANONYMIZE on the confirmation screen.
To make a bidder's name public, follow the same steps, but select "Reveal" instead.
👉 FYI: Items listed as BUY NOW do not require the purchaser to register as a bidder for your Auction. At this time, their names cannot be made anonymous.
