Default Got restricted...Will ebay have mercy if I come clean?

hi, i tried out dropshipping on ebay through a private wholeseller i met. we told tons of products, but i ended up getting the MC011 restriction because of buyer complaints of late shipments (and a lot of cases were opened. all are closed though). this restriction (and solving cses) has stopped my business for a month now. im not even interested in continuing to dropship, i just want my account to remain on good standing and go back to being a normal member of ebay since i made this mistake.
i cannot provide documents because me and the wholeseller had a fight after my account was restricted and we're now on bad terms.

if i come clean to ebay and tell them exactly what i was doing and how i dont want to do this anymore, will they have any mercy in lifting the restriction?

Simon is most likely right.

I really don't know. If the right person hears your story they might believe it. But it's a pure gamble.

At this stage what have you got to lose ? Might as well try and if it doesn't work go stealth.

You're better off confessing to a priest. You'd get a better chance of forgiveness.

Listen to this old advice.

Your chances of getting the account back are low, since even if you call them, they might suspect you are drop shipping. Unless it is a really good account,
I'd drop on reinstating it and create a new stealth one and get back to selling.
As for your buying concerns, eBay does not give a single f*ck if you are a buyer, all the issues are for sellers.
I recommend you to create 2 stealths:
1 For buying, and another one for selling.

I have drop shipped for years without any issues, just don't drop ship from Amazon or Walmart. I think you need to go stealth. Just get the stealth guide, sign up in a variation of your own name, stay under 18K per acct and follow stealth rules.

If you had many chargebacks and cases I would say 99% that you can't get your account back. If it was a random suspension you might have a small chance.

MC011 restrictions are the kiss of death. You can send them everything they ask for and they will keep you suspended. I swear they just ask for that stuff to prove it is you so they can suspend you for good.

dropshipping is fine,retail arbitrage is not.
You the ebay retailer taking customer money and then place the order with another retailer is retail arbitrage,popular retailers would be Costco,Wmt,AMZN.

every now and then,Ebay would ask suspended sellers to sell again,if you can get hold of a rep,tell her you no longer do business with this wholesaler and see what happens

So by your definition of dropshipping, I need to be working with a wholesaler, not a retailer, correct? And that is ebay's way of looking at things also?

eBay's against drop shipping.

If you just want a normal, non-selling account, why would you bother? Just make another account and move on.
