Default 4 days ago had category limits.

Today they are gone. Last Tuesday I got the amber header saying I had reached category limit when I tried to list an item. Today it's raining and I'm bored so just for giggles I decide to try to list that item. Badda bing it appears to be lifted. I even listed 2 items different variation. I don't get it. The notice said 30 day restriction.

Your account may have just aged 90 days, in which case these restrictions can be lifted.

The 30 day notice is a standard message ebay sends. How old is the account?

Hmm - good luck on it regardless - if eB comes back and notices that there was an error on their part, they could take a harder decision on your account because of your non-compliance (even though their error) but time will tell

I think JamesNorth101 hit the ball out of the park. the acct. is just 110 days old. It must have changed on the 1st and I never checked. I think this is about the longest I have had a S acct. of my own making or otherwise.

You need to work out why your accounts are lasting such a short time in that case. You should be able to make an account that lasts for years.

The 110 days is about as long as I have been on Aspkin. I can't expect better than that.

I'm confused. Do you think stealth accounts don't last long or have short shelf lives?

If handled properly, stealth accounts last just as long as normal accounts. If your stealths are getting taken down within a few months, you need to evaluate why or what you're doing wrong.

Stealths can last for years if operated correctly.

If you are still loosing stealths after having found Aspkin, need to work out what your doing wrong

New users to stealth may not be aware of the tricks needed.

This is the usual reason for accounts being lost.

OP has managed to get over that bump thanks to his tenure and hard work here on the forum.
He applied the ways of stealth !!!!!

That is very unusual. Were the items in question high risk?

No they were not. I'm wondering if they are letting low risk items go but when it comes the holidays they will be back on their A game. I hope not !!!!

It's not a matter of letting things "go" per say - low risk are what they are....low risk to suspension. High risk items have gotten through but takes some knowledge and experimentation - not for the faint of heart. Accounts can last for years with proper nurturing and slow, diligent sales + customer service.
