Default It's raining MC999s

everyone be careful out there this holiday season. Just had a string of MC999s and suspensions.

ebay has kicked it into high gear this past week.Took a big blow to my sales. I need to slow down on listings and get it going with the account making so I'm ready to go full force once ebay eases up again.

guess this is good news for the sellers on the marketplace

It's a yearly occurrence that they become tighter.

Were you selling in higher volume and very fast with new accounts?

hmm. you may have made a link somewhere

do you log ips diligently?

I've had multiple accounts go down for listing cheap similar digital delivery items, and others go down for using firefox portable improperly

what is your stealth method? you want to nip it before you waste more time

I do log IPs, I use separate users, and although category was the same the items were different.

i don't think it's a link between accounts…

Probably more about the items I'm listing.

Vero items or not, it doesn't matter. I've gotten this too. I'm suspecting possible link, due to category or photos.

i don't clean my photos. I do take separate photos for each acct though. Never cross the same photo across multiple accounts.

Similar category can cause link? My category is very popular, many variety of listings and products in my category. My items although in same category come in a wide variety (different brands and such).

I thought maybe i listed too much across accounts at the same time. Okay fair enough. But then I listed a few the next day on different accounts and I get MC999 still. And again the day after that.

I try to switch up style of listing, I don't think they can get me for that.

I thought maybe I did too many relistings, so I made a new listing and still, MC999.

hmm I think maybe my item is too high risk for this time of year.

also what makes me think it is simply ebay buckling down for the holidays is that I got a very uncharacteristic mc999 on a new account for an item that usually does not cause any problems for me on new accounts.

sounds like a photo link to me. The similar behaviors confirmed you owned all the accounts to the supercomputer so they were killed, but the photos are the culprit of initiating the hard suspension

im guessing the MC999 wasn't the one you call in? its the perma-ban, right?

EXIF data stores info about the device used to take that photo, linking all of them to one source

most were indefinite restriction. two were 7 day suspension. two were call ins.

my partner got mc999 as well. he is using a separate device. so i am not sure this is the issue.

but now I will erase photo data as you have raised a legitimate concern and I thank you for that.

does your partner have multiple stealth accounts?

multiple stealths + same photo source without EXIF removal = trouble

oh yeah, he definitely has multiple stealths.

He got his MC999s a little more spread out on different days.

He did get 3 MC999s the same day I got hit with a bunch. 1 permanent suspension. The other 2 just "warnings" - no suspension.

I downloaded the photo privacy app for the mac. You know if this app is good?

This type of thing s old news around this time of year,,,and also because of all the recent changes at Amazon, I think that ebay has a little extra incentive, to tighten things up a bit

I also got several limits, I have not received MC messages for some time.

I dont care if I get that MC message. Everything I log into a ebay account I dont brace myself for anything, that feeling of despair is long gone.
