    I wonder what this all means to everyone who markets through forums and such. Aswell as those sites like ShoppingAds.com ?

    What Do you guys think?

    I doubt PJN or any such network is out. EPN has special arrangements with them.

    Other than that these changes really don't mean much unless you were sending traffic directly to ebay.

    So if my site just lists ebay auctions and that is where the use is coming from, would I be safe?

    Your EPN and ebay account will be both banned if one of them is get caught.

    This is good way for them to trace cheater.

    If you are cookie stuffing, be aware!

    Only time will tell, who know what ebay is gonna to do with their data.

    They have the log data, and they can do analysis on the data if they choose to, although it might take some kind of comptuting power. And it is easy for them to check the epn traffic against the ebay seller traffic if both account are linked.

    Not be too paronoid though, lots of ebay sellers send traffic to their own auction.

    Similar to Amazons no direct linking to their site. So if you have Bans/phpbay sites etc you should be alright as you control the site.

    When I sign in, I have to verify what method I use. What would be the best option?

    Well I think the linking of EPN and seller sites is a catch for false accounts
    I would not link accounts specially false ones

    Wouldn't this be a really good way to cs? I mean you could make a WhiteHat WP site and a BlackHat one for cs and on the BlackHat one use the WP Plugin which changes the referrer.
    You would basically drive traffic from different sources to your BlackHat site, CS them and then false the referrer to your WhiteHat site and if eBay has any questions about traffic sources tell them your following their new Business Model and your still using the same traffic methods but instead your directing them at your site not directly to eBay????

    ShadeDream is correct, ahha, we can use tools to change the referrer, and also with CS method.

    And for Amazon, it seems they only not support PPC or any similar methods to promote for it, while EPN, they did not support direct links to Ebay.
