I have been "restricted" from selling certain catagories on ebay. My mother just recently also rec.d notice that she has indefinately been restricted from selling certain items on ebay. I have been told that her account was restricted because the issues I had on my account. I have spoken to 5 supervisors today. I am "below standards" according to them. I have had feedback revisions submited by buyers but other then that I am just told that my performance is below standards. They will provide me no factual information as to why my account has been restricted. My mom has been selling on ebay as a means to support herself and now she is unable to because of an account that is not even in her name. The last "supervisor" I spoke to from ebay told me that "there was no other supervisor above her to talk to" she also refused to give me any information regarding her identity other then her name was "Maria" because " it is against the law for her to provide me with more information." Any advice would be greatly appreciated. jgreene661@yahoo.com

I have been an Ebay seller for several years. I live in New Orleans & after Hurricane Katrina...many of us lost our jobs & it became my major source of income. I have worked unbelievably hard at this....long hours,near perfect photos of every possible detail edited....At this point, I really have grown to feel completely abused by Ebay. I have managed to maintain 100% feedback with over 7700 reviews. The last two incidents have literally made me sick....No one cares & Ebays customer suppoert is a joke. I spoke with four people today...supposedly 3 supervisors.
1) A person left negative feedback and she never paid for the item. I filed a case. I had dialogue with her in the cdase. She never paid for the product & I received Final value fees. Then she left NEGATIVE feedback stating she was not happy with the transaction. I guess she felt she deserved to get it free & Ebay supported her. I was told she did not violate any Ebay policies & they would not remove it.
Secondly I advertised a single Hoodie and the Brand Name was Lot 29. The listing clearly stated it was one hoodie and one size. A woman who is a sellar & buyer bought the Hoodie. She began to write threatening letters stating I had advertised 29 Hoodie's shipped to her for a total of $30 with Free Shipping!!!She left low DSR's instead of Negative Feedback.
By the way, I take returns & even send return labels for free if I make a mistake or if the product arrives & it is not in perfect condition. I only sell BRand New Items fromMajor Retailers.
I call the above situations Internet Courage. All buyers have 100% feedbacdk...What possible use is that to anyone??? The sellars are Ebay's customers and they are robbing us as well as allowing our buyers to post slanderous comments about us without any intervention. i can not understand why some Huge Legal Firm hasn't won a Trillion Dollar Class Action Suit against them. This surely cannot be legal......The economy is falling apart & we can't simply give away a hundred thousand in inventory. How do we protect our investment in Ebay??? They have betrayed all of their customers...their sellers. Why isn't anyone working to represent all of us in a suit against Ebay????
I agree. I can only describe Ebay as a Criminal Organization.
I could write a book on all the diceptive, fraudulent practices they have used. This includes showing some items to exclusive groups of bidders-basically stealing them, and then listing or not listing them to the rest of the public. I have numerous items that ended June 24, 2012
yet do not show up in any completed listings(customer service lied and said they could see them through advanced searches(also not true)One item got a single bid at $9.99 when it was clearly $80-$100 item. they also change listing features, offer free shipping when you did not submit this feature, default shipping methods and weights to new listings(then have weight window close in order to generate mistakes. They are quite evil.

I have started another thread in the photography section since I was specializing in cameras on ebay but perhaps it would be of interest to other sellers as well:

Will never use Ebay ever. Ebay due to buyer's warranty, it has become heaven for theives. They buy stuff then return stealing parts or returning bad items. And Ebay no matter what, they condone this and let the thieves steal online.

After 12 years of selling on ebay, I have initially disagreed with many new policies but have won every case filed against me ad as a seller. That totally amazes me after reading the scads of other sellers horror stories.
I do have a low policy compliance record because before listing my items I search them on ebay to better understand what I am offering. On 19 occasions my listings were removed due to violations that the items were not allowed to be sold in ebay. Keep in mind that there were hundreds of identical items listed AND completed.
My attorney is completely dissecting all ebay policy along with selling rules and regs and unfair profiling. I am certain things will change. He is very eager to make a name from the practice of these corporate pigs.

I'd like to sign up to for the lawsuit against Ebay and Paypal. I've been cheated both as a buyer and seller and I've had it with them. The shipping being added to the final value fees was the final straw. Please forward my info to the attorneys too: indiegals@earthlink.net

Today is my final day on Ebay, I have had it with their BS policies and rules for sellers.
Charging a fee for shipping was bad enough, but then they added uploading tracking within 24 hours or lose TRS status. I was a small volume seller but it was my main income. I have always tried to do everything honestly and as quickly as possible. Last month I realized an item I sold had a defect. I contacted the seller who did not reply for another day stating she would still take it. This in turn made my tracking upload late. The month before I was injured and couldn't walk for 2 days. Unfortunately items sold the day I was hurt. I messaged buyers to let them know the circumstances and there was no problem. Until.....it made my tracking uploads late. I am soooooo upset by all Ebays garbage I would like to join or start a class action suit against them. I want my fees refunded which they took when they took away my top rated seller status!!!!!

Even today eBay is a scam. They are liars and thieves. Their policy should say in a few words. Buyers are always right and we(eBay) are here to scam you(sellers) out of your money. eBay blackmails the sellers and extort money from the sellers PayPal account.

If there is a lawsuit against those crooks...I want in....how can they take a fee out of shipping when we already paid for it....they re getting double there money. I have been selling for many years and I even called them about a month ago and asked why I got charged a shipping fee....they couldn't give me an answer or should I say they said you shouldn't be. I sell on ebay just to make alittle extra cash but this is bulls***.So if I can get in and help I will

Please give me info on the Ebay class action, Ive been having to pay fees to them for final value on shipping an they don't have anything to do with shipping, this has to be against the law, someone who has legal knowledge please start a class action..I pay alot for packaging and gas, Ebay doesnt buy my shipping and im so tired of having to pay them a fee for my shipping which by the way I have to pay extra everytime I ship, this is costing me more then its worth, so I will quit selling..But I want all my Shipping fees recovered from thier illegal taking them even the buyers are losing out cause they pay us to ship and not Ebay
