  1. Hello Mihai,


    xat does not support the resale of shortnames on xat. Hence, there is no way to conveniently sell the shortnames that you own. This however does not mean it is prohibited! (In a way, please continue reading)


    If one were to try to sell the email associated with the account, they would be denied any services through the ticket form because they did not register this account. Not only is this a very easy way to have more of your data stolen (i.e: very insecure), it may also lead to account closure. Indeed, giving others the email to your account is prohibited. 


    The only way that it’s been speculated to sell shortnames is to pay the user to delete the name themselves. Once they do so, provided they are a paid user, they may create a ticket to ask for the shortname to be put back up for sale. Then and only then would the seller actually use their xats to purchase the name themselves. I believe it’s been kept this difficult on purpose.


    Dopest point out that the resale of shortnames is not allowed on Trade. Nor is it on Help, and many other official chats.


    Hopefully this answers your question. If you need any other sort of information, please reply back and let me know. Otherwise, I will be closing this thread within a few days.

    After sending emails back and fourth in the ticket center to some random volunteer, I get told a warning email has been sent TO A NON-EXISTENT EMAIL ADDRESS, which I explained to this volunteer countless times that IT DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE, and that I have to wait and not reply to the volunteer for 7 days, all while implying that I am a hacker and trying to get access to someone else's account. I have provided all the required information accurately and even posted a copy of the most recent receipt from xats that I myself had purchased from the account when I was active. But oh no, even that wasn't good enough and I'm left replying to the same, repetitive security questions "Do you have any other xat accounts? What was the exact date of account creation? Do you have any powers?"

    What kind of absolute toiletry security system is this where it's costing me, a paying xat customer, a proverbial arm and a leg just to get access to my account again? I tell ya I have never seen such a shoddy way to recover an account. xat FAILS at customer service and giving their paying customers the benefit of the doubt.

    We're glad to see that you were able to open a ticket regarding this issue.


    The protocol that we volunteers follow when it comes to Lost Access is as you mentioned-- we first send a warning email to the "lost email" in question. We understand that the email may not exist, but this is done to ward off any phishing attempts by malicious users. After all, the last thing we would want is for someone else to gain access to your account! The logic here is that if someone were to open a ticket claiming that they lost access to YOUR email, you'd be able to reply within 7 days to tell them that nothing is wrong! This is all with your security in mind; we don't do this to be annoying!


    After a 7 day period has expired and there has been no reply from the "lost email", we then proceed in helping you recover your account by allowing you to change the email. The follow up questions are simply meant to further confirm that you're the true account owner, again with having your account's security in mind. We apologize that you feel that you're having to give up a proverbial arm & leg due to this process, but we assure you that this is the safest way to ensure everyone's accounts on xat are secured!


    I certainly hope I've been able to shed a bit of light on the situation, and why we feel that it's a bad idea to give customers the benefit of the doubt. 


    If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to me here on the forum by shooting me a personal message, or at the help chat, found at https://xat.com/Help


    In the mean time, I will be locking this thread, since you were able to successfully open a ticket about your issue.
