Arrow EBAY is targeting sellers of Brand Name Goods even more heavily these days

HI folks:
This morning-
I received a "heads up call" from my account manager from ebay--
She called from 801-545-1800...

This was NOT my regular girl-- the lady said that she was making courtesy calls to Power Sellers--

She further stated that they are enforcing further "Listing restrictions" on BRAND items, as well as LUXURY items. Starting TODAY>

She further stated that They are doing this to prevent rampant fraud going on, and uncovered recently..

She said that upon trying to LIST any type of Major Brand or LUXURY items, should I encounter a "problem"--I should immediately send an email to
"Sales-development @ ebay.com--

She said the Restriction will effect most sellers--BUT--the way aorund it--is by calling/or emailing and having the temporary restriction "reviewed"

She further stated that my account was one of the "Accounts that were on the "TARGET LIST"--but after the in house review--she had lifted the restriction..

(This account is 11 years old--with 100% fb,, dsrs--avg 4.85)

She also said that there will be many, many sellers experiencing Holds/restrictions starting this week--

One may have their account "reviewed" after a month of waiting (30 days wait)-- to be able to LIST again, as a brand item/.luxury item..

So--just a FYI--CYA
Good Luck

HI: Followup--heres an email in my inbox--from Ebay--by the way--they called me on my personal cell phone today--not my Business number)--

Hello xxxxxxxxx,

Thanks for talking with me. As we discussed, eBay is committed to fighting fraud and preventing and reducing bad buying experiences on the eBay site.

In order to keep our site safe for buyers and sellers, we place restrictions on the type of items that sellers may list as well as the number of items sellers may list in certain categories. We wanted to give you advance notice that we will be further tightening the selling limits in June.

As a result, you may experience these added limitations when you try to list items such as certain luxury goods. You should also know that if you encounter these limitations you will need to wait 30 days before you can list additional similar items.

Sellers can appeal to have such selling limits raised. Our customer support teams will be happy to periodically review any seller's account and in some cases may ease the selling limits. To determine whether selling limits may be lessened, factors such as buyer feedback, time and activity on site, and compliance with all eBay policies are considered.

We encourage you to continue to build up a positive selling history, and we will be happy to review your selling limits in the future. We recommend that you wait about 90 days before contacting us to review your account.

You can contact us directly by clicking on the "email us" link listed in the messaging you will see in the Sell Your Item flow if you encounter a selling limit.

It is always a good idea to verify your identity as a seller by linking your eBay account to your PayPal account, regardless of whether or not you accept payments via PayPal. For more information on how to become PayPal Verified, please review the following page: Becoming Verified on PayPal

If you have further questions, please contact PowerSeller Customer Support. You can find your CS contact information by logging into the PowerSeller Portal page at eBay: Redirect

Thanks again for your time.

Regards,

PATRICIA

Thanks for the info. When they say luxury items, is that just LV, Rolex etc etc or also other high valued items such as laptops, lcd/plasmas etc etc?

DVD boxsets arent brand name but you have a 99.9 percent chance of having them removed and eventually suspended anyways.

I have already received this limitation. My account is about 3 weeks old now. Last week I noticed when I went to list anything I got the "certain limits are placed on newly activated accounts, please do not list this item for 30 days". I contacted ebay live chat to ask why this limit was in place and she gave me a link to send an e-mail, the title of the heading said "blocked and or suspended accounts". ebay live chat suggested I wait 72 hours to hear back and if I don't contact them again. I have 5 positive feedback, no negatives, have provided tracking for all orders within 1 business day in ebay.

Ebay is reacting to the court fine in France. By doing this they are trying to show they are pro-active in fighting fraud.....The more restrictions they place, the better they look in the eyes of the court....

It is going to get rough out there....

What are those "luxury goods"? Might be bad news for people who try to sell a doughnut in the shape of Jesus.

Thanks for the heads up!! Is this just for power sellers who list brand name items or for everybody who lists brand name items? I list just a few at a time, no more than ten a week.

Also, what do they consider luxury items?

Like, just now, on the news, i heard that Ebay had to pay Loius Vitton, 50 ? milloin dollars for Ebay allowing ⊗⊗⊗⊗ of their {Louis Vitton} products to be sold on their auction site.
Give me a break. Does ANYONE think that { other than the lawsiut making money for them} Louis Vitton lost one dime because one of us "poor folks" bought a ⊗⊗⊗⊗???
I am sorry, but I think that is stupid.
I guess if they took credit for somone`s invention,[like change salt water to reg water} I might be upset, but suitcases??? and bags??? and clothes???. I cannot help it, I am sitting here laughing.

Yoga mate,
I can guarantee that those ⊗⊗⊗⊗ sales on ebay have mounted up to more than 50 million lol. I would say more like 1 billion or more. Now if you put that to real sales for Louis Vuitton as in FULL PRICE. Work it out. It is loss simple as.

If you owned Nike and you knew chinese were faking your product and they were all selling on Ebay. Would you sue Ebay for 50Mill??? DAMN RIGHT!!! A penny is a penny!

well, ok, BUt I still wonder if LV will make more money if no ⊗⊗⊗⊗ are sold????. I still say, I cannot see Jessica Simpson buying LV off ebay.
And I have been poor so long that I will not LIVE long enough to break the "frugal" habit and buy REALL stuff.
just me.
