Some sites I sell on dont check at all while others do. So they're intentionally pulling the data its not random. Some sellers can easily create accounts without changing much while others struggle. So changing the canvas and webgl is an option for them to try out.

True that - differences in algorithms and "bots" from site to site

Ebay would only potentially use this for algos. No human is checking this. I highly doubt it would ever cause a isssue.

No need for new hardware. Tweak user agents, if on firefox there's couple of main settings through configs. Using extensions to report ⊗⊗⊗⊗ canvas fingerprint values can be detected and raises suspicions.

Virtual boxes/new users work fine

I think you're underthinking it but we can agree to disagree, lol. Chrome tracks more than any other browser.

My main account is the one selling on a "hardened" instance of Firefox.

They don't work like that. Made a test - created few accs via new users - all had same fingerprint and got banned in few h after listing.

So you're saying that browser fingerprinting goes across different user accounts causing the link and takedown?

Yes, it is. If you create 2 accs and put same browser in each - will be same canvas id.

Using new user accounts for me are not working for me either like they did in the past. Virtual machines, nope even using different browsers on new users didn't work.

What sometimes works for me is using my mobile phone and using the firefox private browser seems to keep the account up. No suspension or restriction within 30-60 minutes like I do with the methods above. But some accounts get permanently suspended within a week and others stay up.

Tried the same method as the mobile above but this time using desktop firefox private with mobile tether. Gets suspended within 30 minutes or less after listing.

To clarify with all the above methods, I am creating new accounts. I am not aging them.
