Keep being asked to link eBay account Sat Mar 13, 2021 04:01 PM Quote

Most times I log on today I keep being asked to link my eBay account. I relink it and it all looks OK but a short while later it just seems to lose the link again. Any help would be much appreciated.

It appears there was a network-related issue when the sniper could not verify the link properly.
The issue is gone, but some adjustments were done on the sniper side to mitigate it in the future.
It should not affect the actual sniping in this case.

Please let me know if you see this again and thanks a lot for reporting it.

I'm getting this too and lost out on a snipe, it says account linked in profile but the added items say it is not linked, tried revoking and signing in again.

The simplest way to check the link is to try to access your Watch List.

It was working fine earlier today (Sunday) but just now I got the message about having to relink accounts again.

spurby,
It would be nice if you provide some reference information like the item number and your username.
If you don't want to share it here, please contact support directly.

It hasn't done it again since, so I'm presuming all is well now. Please feel free to close this thread. Thanks for your help.

I am being asked to re-link to my eBay account again. This is the third or fourth time within the past month or so that I've had to relink. Sasha, why does this keep happening?

If eBay reports your link is being invalidated, the sniper checks and asks to relink.
Unfortunately, eBay does not provide the exact reason on why it was invalidated.
The most common case is some eBay account change, but there could be others related to security or other reasons.

Sorry, I wish I could help.
Luckily, relinking is a quick and easy process. By relinking you are just saying "yes, I authorize it".

I've used Myibidder for years with great success, but today I lost an auction because it did not bid. It says that my eBay Account is not linked. I re-linked it, but how and why did this happen? How can I prevent future occurances?

There is expiration for linking set by eBay, it's about 18 months.
Also, your link may expire when have some eBay account changes like password or similar.

The sniper monitors your link and sends email when it detects it's no longer valid.
Please make sure you don't block such email notifications from the sniper to avoid missing snipes.
