Thanks, my 30 day vero selling limitation is up. I think it's been about 45 days since they gave it to me. I'm going to try to start listing my sunglasses again. Hopefully they will let me list more than 2 items before Ebay come up with some other Bull S*** excuse. I will keep you guys posted on my outcome over this upcoming week.

I was reading your story and I wonder if they give you problems if the item is used? Do you still get the same 30 day warning?

I sell ⊗⊗⊗⊗, I sleep quite well when my money comes in.

Default Update on my 30 day limit.

Well it's been awhile now since I contacted ebay. But My selling limits have not been lifted yet. After over 45 days of waiting I am still getting the selling limits in the designer sunglass category. That is a bunch of Bull because I manage to become a Gold/Silver Power seller with 4.9 DSR across the board and I still get treated like this.

This is the email I got from ebay.

"Dear "BooMer"<~~~ (Not my real ID or name),

Well I'm not worried about it anymore because I have my items in other optical shops around my area and not on ebay.

I think that is a little rediculous. I can only imagine what the excuse from ebay would be...

I was able to list one item today in the category. I think I get 1 every 7 days or more. I have to do some testing on what is my limit now.

Great story Boomer, Massive outlay of $50,000 for the glasses, I would be too scared of getting stuck with them.

Default Update: Lifting Limits Denied Again!!!!

So the last time I contacted ebay on this account to lift my limits they told me to wait 90 days. Well I waited longer about 11 months to be exact. This is what I sent them.
"I get this message when I try to list some stuff.
Can you remove my limits. Please tell me what I need to do to lift my
selling limits. I am a TOP RATED POWER SELLER NOW With Excellent
FEEDBACK
Thank You"


This is what Ebay Replied back with.

"Dear eBay member,

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to being unable to list the item on
eBay.

I recognize your concern and want to quickly and responsively resolve
your concern. I appreciate the efforts you have already taken to resolve
this issue. However, let me explain you that, this selling limit is not
a disciplinary action; it is a default account state.

Every seller on eBay has been faced with this restriction at some point
or another as their account has grown. Eventually the seller can request
to have their account reviewed and cleared to sell luxury items in
larger quantities.

The best course of action for you at this time would be to continue
selling your luxury items on the site within your limits. If you have
other types of items you may be able to list them on the site once you
have hit your weekly limits to help you build your selling reputation on
eBay and generate revenue.

Moreover, first we will need to ensure that your PayPal account is
verified. Do you know if it is?

Thus, Verifying your PayPal account is easy to do, but first you'll need
to go to www.paypal.com and log in. After you do that, please follow
these steps.

1. Go to your profile, then add and confirm your bank account.
2. Once you have completed the process, please update your PayPal
account by selecting "My Account", then "Profile", then "Selling
Preferences" and choose "Auctions".
3. Click on "Add" and enter your eBay User ID.
Re-Linking your PayPal Account (There are 2 ways to do this)

Re-Linking your PayPal account - The training way

1) Since your account is verified, what we can try is re-linking your
PayPal account to your eBay account. I can guide you through the steps
if you need me to.

2) Can you please go to you're my eBay page? To get there click the My
eBay link at the top of the eBay homepage. Then click the Addresses link
on the left side of the page. Let me know if you have troubles finding
that link.

3) Then, please click the link called "View All Shipping Addresses". If
your account is not linked, you will see a button at the top of the page
to add your PayPal address. Please click this and follow the site's
instructions.

Re-Linking your PayPal Account - The PayPal way

1) At this time you will need to link your eBay account to your PayPal
account. You can do this by logging into your PayPal account. Then
follow these 3 easy steps:

2)a. Make sure that the My Account tab is selected at the top of the
page, then click the Profile tab on the far right of the screen, found
directly below the Auction Tools tab.

b. Under the "Selling Preference" heading, click the first link for
"Auctions".

c. Click the Add button and you're on your way to linking your eBay
account to PayPal. It's that simple!

However, if you are still facing the problem in listing your item I
request you to write back to us with the exact error you are receiving
so that we could provide you with the precise solution to solve your
problem.

There is unfortunately no timeline for the removal of the limits from
your account. Additionally, the limits are variable in nature, and as
such we are unable to define them more clearly for you. They change
depending on a wide variety of situations.


While we are unable to currently remove your limits, you may wish to
appeal them some time in the future. At that point we will review your
account again and determine whether or not we can lift those
restrictions.

Please note that only a small percentage of items will be restricted by
these limits. A majority of items should still be permissible for you to
list without any restrictions or penalties.

We are committed to making your eBay experiences pleasant and
fulfilling.

Sincerely,
Suzanne L.

eBay Customer Support"


I just don't get them. My paypal account is already verified and linked to the ebay account but that is still not good enough. They just want me to appeal to get denied again. 100% Positive feedback, Over 2000 Feedback, Top Rated Seller 4.9 - 5.0 DSR's, Silver/Gold Power Seller status is what I have and is not what ebay is looking for to lift limits.

The only major violation was a Listing removal I received on Copyright violation for some coupons that were legit.

So to all who are still looking to lift limits Don't Bother trying. If you have not received any Selling Limits and want it to stay that way then you should KEEP a perfect squeaky clean record with NO VIOLATION WHATSOEVER FOR THE WHOLE LIFETIME OF YOUR EBAY ACCOUNT.

Hope this helps.
BooMer

So, once you have your listing removed you are screwed forever... Better chance to start all over I think.. They make you think high positive feedback and DSR is relevant, but not so....

Start a website selling those glasses. I saw my friend who owns 4 kiosks selling them 2 for $20 glasses get rich. He just bought a house and car....cash! These days, ebay is only for those selling their used stuff, not for a serious business. For that, go with website or storefront with real merchant account no one can fvck with.
