Blocked. eBay classic site stopped showing AAs to me altogether on iPhone, regardless of VPN setting AND THE BROWSER. I keep seeing AAs on MOBILE site consistently, in the expected language per VPN setting.

Please verify with VPN. I will try again later, maybe tomorrow as well. Currently i'm just bleeding hours because the debugging landscape is unstable. Besides Germany to simulate your location, i have tried also UK(London) and USA West Coast.

Attaching a screenshot of Safari incognito tab with VPN set to USA.

When testing the VPN, please close/reopen the browser and use a new incognito tab every time the VPN is switched on-off or the endpoint is changed. Ebay seems to be hooked quite a lot to the established session and definitely carries the AA behavior over the IP change.
