Default Ebay account suspended indefinitely after 1st listing

Hi all,

Before getting the Stealth Book, I wanted to share my, very brief, story of my account getting suspended in hopes I get some information on the reasons why before proceeding to create another using stealth.

So, I have a really old and very well kept personal account on ebay since 2005 which I use regularly for buying and maybe sometimes selling stuff I find around the house or I don't need. I have 100% feedback and close to 500 score overall.

I recently wanted to try dropshipping on ebay and decided to open a new account (since I was a bit wary from the get go I didn't want to use my old account), so I went ahead and opened a new business paypal account, and a US ebay business account on my Wife's name (no same details where used from my previous account apart from the home address). I set up the tools I needed to set up, verified my paypal account and 2 days later I made my first listing.

Moments later, literally 10 minutes later, my account got suspended and when I called (Since there was no info whatsoever on the message they sent me) they asked a couple of things regarding the account and what I would be selling ( I replied that I will be selling this and that and that I would do product sourcing) and they told me the account is indefinitely suspended and they cant do anything about it.


What Im looking for is what exactly went wrong, or what I did wrong In order to not repeat that. Was it due to suspected dropshipping? Perhaps due to the fact that I was logging in to my other account days earlier from the same IP? Or maybe due to the home address being the same as on my old account?

Side note: Should I start worrying about my old account? Its been a day and nothing happened to that account yet.

Any insight would be very helpful since im not yet sure I want to go into this again. If I have some insight on what could have been the culprit then I might proceed with caution..

thanks!!

Had a new account suspended after putting a book on auction. Followed the Stealth Book advice, etc, had many accounts before. Its a reoccurring theme that I'm seeing on the forum that seems to be happening. Can anyone shed light on it?

Don't interpret the suspension e-mail literally. Many times they use the same message template for different suspensions.

eBay might very well want you to call in so that they double check your information and then reinstate your account.


I once registered a 2nd account (real info) and after I listed the first item I got a message telling me I am not allowed to sell on eBay ever again. I called in, they double checked my info (name...etc) and immediately reinstated my account.

Yes loads of accounts getting banned now, on another thread someone wrote about mixing things up; using different browsers for each account, and business accounts seem to be suffering more than personal

Well i did call, they asked for details, provided everything correctly, then asked what ill be selling, said that ill be selling these kind of stuff and i will be doing product sourcing since they asked where i got the product from.

Thats it. Then thwy said the account is suspended indefinitely.

Nope. No ebay/paypal account in the past whatsoever.

First listing was a product from ali express. Changed description, added a template of my own, changed ALL the wording, even added logos to the photos and deleted anything that prompted to china/another seller.

I did use shopmaster by the way. No idea if it makes a difference..

dontknow if it is what you plan to sell or source from or your account.best is to sell something you already have in possession and stay away from sourcing from Aliexpress .
did you search and find out if your item is already on Ebay?

Case dismissed . You named it and you know it has to do with dropshipping.


For the future I suggest you don't make the same mistake, steer away from dropshipping because it has no future on the eBay platform.
