    Suppose I made an eBay account using "chris.gmail" as my log In Id , now due to my carelessness my eBay account got banned.

    Next thing you know, i am deleting cookies off my browser, getting a new IP and all that jazz. Essentially what one must do , before making a new eBay account , after their primary got suspended.

    Now I know I can never log into my old suspended eBay ever .
    What about gMail ? Suppose I log into my old gmail account [ chris.gmail ] with my new IP address, same IP i am using for my new fresh eBay account. If there any chance Google would contact eBay telling them " hey look! just so you know this guy you banned has just got a new IP , make sure to check any accounts that are using the same IP address , just incase he is back"

    Gmail and ebay does not share data. However, ebay includes a web beacon in all their emails so if you open an eBay email from a banned IP on Gmail, you can be linked via what it sends to eBay.

    So, after getting a new IP. If I wish to stay unbanned , I can never ever log into my old suspended eBay account and gmail account. Is that what you're saying ?

    I don't need the suspended account anymore, but the gMail is my primary mail for everything..isn't there a way around it ??

    What if I never ever open any future e-mail from eBay in "chris.gmail" ?? Would that web beacon thing still be a problem ?

    No, i have never heard that they share the data with each other.

    However, ebay can detect if you create new account in the same computer. So just be careful, when you create new account.

    I doubt Google and Ebay share certain things, but I wouldn't doubt it completely. I don't really use Ebay too much, so I can't say for certain, but I can see Ebay having some tools to check on users e-mails (if clicked on) and so on.

    All I know is that Ebay will know if you make a new account. So you have to make sure to change that IP and possibly change your PC like someone on here said.

    there is an option on Gmail settings to not open images. That will cut off eBay harvesting of your data by you opening an image hosted somewhere else.

    most companies who aren't related don't share data, for legal liability reasons

    Google did start hosting images on their own servers a while back (http://arstechnica.com/information-...ting-by-caching-all-images-on-google-servers/) so you should be fine even with images turned on, but I would still suggest turning images off just to be 100% safe from that. Just go into your Gmail's settings, then select "Ask before displaying external images". Since you've received emails from eBay before, the images may still load even in future emails, so be careful. Before creating a new account you'll want to turn off embedded images and then open an old email from eBay just to confirm that images are indeed turned off. If they aren't you can click somewhere in the email (I forgot where exactly) and select "don't display images from this sender from now on".

    You don't need an all new computer to make a new eBay account. You can simply create a new user account. Or if you want to use your main user account, use a program like CCleaner to delete all cookies (including flash cookies - and you should turn those off anyway), internet history, etc before proceeding. And there's also programs like VMware that lets you create a virtual machine to have a self-contained environment if you prefer that.

    I am planning on making a new user account on my Windows 8 machine. Are cookies and flash cookies transferable between accounts . Just to be a safe, i will download CCleaner on this new account and flash whatever is there.

    Some one told me to download Firefox and make sure delete cookies , history and any other data every time you close the browser. I was wondering if lack of cookies make eBay suspicious ..

    Am i making any sense? English is NOT my first language :~[

    yea, you make perfect sense

    i don't see the point in clearing cookies/history every time when you shut down firefox, before you create the stealth account, it's necessary, but only once and not ever after that, unless you're trying to manage multiple accounts which is not the case here

    the vast majority of ppl don't do this for sure, but how suspicious this is or not, i cannot tell you exactly, although if you don't violate their policy again, you have nothing to be afraid of

    Remember, always go slow and ramp it up over time SLOWLY if you are selling anything risky if you want a long term account. The problem most people make is that they try to cut corners and try to have things done quickly and that usually often bites people in the butt.
