Strange characters in street address: ebayzgjj4xd

Hello,

can somebody explain what these strange characters which are sometimes returned

in the street2 tag mean (always starts with ebay then some random combination of letters and numbers eg. ebayzgjj4xd), when executing a GetOrders request?

<ShippingAddress>
    <Name>John</Name>
    <Street1>20 ..</Street1>
    <Street2>ebayzgjj4xd</Street2>
shipping address

LOL... welcome to the place, where input data NEVER gets checked. either by any RFC or any simple REGEX. ebay even allows smilies inside the shipping address. email addresses can be written as you like... doesn´t matter if it´s a real (RFC) email or not. So pardon, I had to mention that because it´s crazy (and stupid) for me.....

anyway..... why not ask the buyer ? ;) i´m sure it´s not an API problem.... ;)

It is not just this buyer, it happens all the time always in the same format (starting with ebay and then some random combination of lower cap letters and numbers, like this ebayhrtw7343, ebayjfhy3ew)

An email address identifies an email box to which messages are delivered. Despite the wide range of special characters which are technically valid
