But whatever... someone wanting to put their phone number in a listing is just asking for trouble, anyway.

Large sellers have been doing this for years, and even go as far to place full-page ads (with address, phone number(s), and email addresses) inside their listings. They allow this for well-established sellers on many categories.

That phone number either goes to an automated message and deadends, giving the impression of them being bigger than they are and working as a trust badge for the customer or it is legitmate and they have either an automated AI style answering service or outsourced VAs who do it for 2hr. Either way, sellers doing this should plan it into their business model or take it out and don't worry about it.

I have some accounts with Retail Store Name, Address, Phone Number, 1-800 Call center in New Hampshire on ebay listings right now. In description and in photos.

We also do it for RV rentals. It is forbidden right? But we do it along with Cruise America and some of our friends in Colorado with no problems.

Everything is possible. Just because one person or most cant does not mean someone else cant. :)

Exactly, 100%

This is not just true on eBay. Even other e-commerce sites the rules can be applied inconsistently. This is just a fact of life in general.

It works for this industry and items. just a handful of technical questions a week and maybe 20k average a month extra sales. All very high dollar items ranging $800-3000 and almost always just a credit card over the phone.

It is my old original internet business. I am 100% hands off other than sourcing items and keeping a thumb on new policies and procedures. Those people answering the phone do nothing but handle web-sales. They are on site 7 days a week anyways. They might as well answer the phone and convert some more sales.

Yeah, I'm talking about ebay. I've never had an issue answering tech questions for my websites.

But ebay seems to be the dumbest of the dumb. :tears:

It is ebay. They sell a little over 1 million annually on ebay still. Just turning wheels, not really making any money. Keeps the cash flowing.

Ahhh, okay... I thought you were only involved in the account with the seasonal items.

IMO, worrying about other sellers when you can be spending more time on YOUR OWN business practices.... is wrong!

I barely have enough time to run my own stuff, much less worry about someone elses.

This is how I work regardless of situation. I never rat on other sellers, I do see what worked for them and see if I can do better.

But this world is not perfect, you'll always have people ratting on each other and drag others down to make themselves feel better.

It's a world where you have to pay the price to be a good individual.
