If I unlink my Gixen account from one ebay account and then link it to another ebay account is there any way for ebay to identify that this has happened.

Can ebay tell if the same Gixen account has been switched to another ebay account by way of some unique identifier / Gixen username etc.?

I wouldn't think so, no.

Gixen uses the one permission you grant for it to bid on your behalf that is associated with your Gixen account, there is no need for it to pass on the Gixen credentials which it uses to keep that permission and your snipes secure on Gixen servers.

As you say, you can replace that permission with one for a different Ebay account any time you like.

Can I ask why you ask though ?

As an aside, if it's got anything to do with shill bidding, I'd definitely advise against that since Ebay has many other ways of detecting that kind of behaviour without the need to know anything about Gixen credentials.

eBay does not retrieve or store Gixen usernames. It knows, however, if authorization is granted to Gixen in general.

Thanks guys. The reason I ask is that I reached a selling limit on my seller account nearly a year ago. I will spare you the details, but ebay is not always fair in how it applies rules, and their customer service advisors can sometimes give bad advice and make a bad situation much worse. Long story short I got suspended and do not know if they linked my buyer account with the suspended account / ip address etc.
