Default Where did i go wrong?! MC034 FB NOTICE: Feedback Manipulation


1. Where did i go wrong? The 2 items they mentioned were medium value items (13.00). The only thing i may have done wrong is copy and paste a standardised feedback comment for a buyer. There was no "cheap feedback" or message to that effect in the listing name or description. However i did write "trusted seller" in both the description and title?

2. What is the best way of getting this account reinstated? Wait 30 days and send the email they outlined? Or can i send the email before 30 days? Or am i fighting a lost cause? better to leave it and move on? Account has 100+ worth of ebay fees NOT paid yet..

MC034 FB NOTICE: eBay Registration Suspension - Feedback Manipulation -


We regret to inform you that your eBay account has been suspended for breach of our Feedback Manipulation policy.

You listed the following item purely to artificially raise a Feedback score:

Your account will remain suspended for a minimum of 30 days, after which time you may appeal the suspension by following the instructions further down in this email.

***About eBay's Feedback Manipulation policy***

Feedback is intended solely as a rating of the actual performance of a buyer or seller in the conduct of their transaction. It is against eBay policy to leave or receive Feedback where the primary value of the Feedback is to artificially enhance a member's reputation, rather than comment on a real transaction.

This includes offering to buy, sell or barter Feedback in an email or item description; or using a phrase such as "Build Your FB score quickly" in the title of an inexpensive listing.

For more information about this policy please copy this link into a new browser window:

Feedback Manipulation

During your suspension you are prohibited from using eBay in any way, including registering new accounts. Doing so may result in your permanent suspension. We have ended any open listings.

Please be advised that this suspension does not relieve you of your obligation to pay any fees that you may owe to eBay.

Here's what you can do now:

1) Familiarise yourself with eBay policies
2) Wait until the end of your suspension period
3) Reply to this email with the declaration outlined below

1) Familiarise yourself with eBay policies

2) Wait until the end of your suspension period

We'll review your account for reinstatement only when the suspension period is up: 30 days after you receive this notice.
