The Buyer-Seller Messaging Service lets you communicate with buyers in the Amazon marketplace via email or Seller Central. The service uses encrypted email addresses for both buyers and sellers. For example, when a buyer contacts you, Amazon assigns them an encrypted alias like firstname.lastname@example.org. Amazon then routes the emails to you via the encrypted alias.

Buyer-Seller Messaging keeps a record of all buyer-seller correspondence. Even when you respond using your personal or business email, the service records it using an encrypted email alias.
