Default ETSY banwave?

Recently I got my 4 accounts closed after review. 2 of them were like 3-4 months old and 2 of them new and they all were closed in 24 hours span. This is just not right, it can not be coincidence. Is anyone having bad time right now or is it just me?? I am frustrated..

What do you mean by review? I'm not having any problems across mine. Perhaps you linked your accounts somehow? What sort of product are you selling?

There is no way I could link them having in mind that 2 accounts were 3-4 months old (logged in to them every day) and I did everything the same this time as well. I tried selling iphone cases with 1 account (did not work well, they reviewed account after I listed like 100 items in 3 days), other accounts were t-shirts. Maybe they don't like entropay vccs, I don't know.

By review I mean "Hello,

This is West from Etsy's Marketplace Integrity team. Thank you for your interest in selling on Etsy.

Based on inconsistencies we reviewed in your account information, we have reason to believe that your business presents a significant risk to the marketplace and we can no longer accommodate your account(s) on Etsy.

We ask that you please do not open any additional Etsy accounts; they will be closed immediately and without notice.

Regardless of your account status, you remain obligated to fulfill any open orders by shipping the items or issuing a full refund.

If you would like to contact your buyers directly, you can find their email address on the purchase notification email you received from Etsy or on your PayPal transaction receipt.

We're sorry that we cannot continue our business relationship and wish you the best in finding the appropriate venue for your items.

Best,
West
Etsy Marketplace Integrity"

That doesnt seem consistent with something being handmade for a new account. Could be the issue?

phone cases and tshirts...listing hundreds in a few days...and lemme guess, a bunch of st.olen/cop.ied tra.demar.ks you dont own...

you honestly just sound like every other asian seller who tried to flood et.sy with "handmade" bogan products over the past year or two. a few got away with it. now they aren't so stupid.

Yeah that was my fault for adding that much in 3 days to new accounts. But those 3-4 month old accounts were stable and I did not add anything new to them.

Maybe they are just simply cracking down on your product. But there could always be a link, I'm pretty sure Et.sy could link all my accounts if they wanted to and that they just choose not to.

Could they choose a product (listing name, tags) and ban it all the time its on the market? It seems time consuming.

Don't forget about your competitors reporting you, and of course people who generally have nothing better to do with their lives.

I'm sure if they wanted to they could do a mass ban/removal of accounts, but it may have been something that was planned for a while, populate a list of accounts they want remove and then push the purge button. But I don't really know how Et.sy works on that sort of thing, I've never had it happen to me.

Well yeah.. you shouldn't have listed that many items in 3 days.
And.. is there a possibility that they've linked your accounts?

Can not think of any possibilities of linking.

I have been doing stealth for past 2+ years so I know a bit about this. Umm could they link if I log in to accounts same time every day? Or if I pay fees same day? Also do they see platform's, browser's information? (using different win accounts same browser). What else.. Answering people's questions in the morning at the same time (one acc then another and so on). Any thoughts? (been doing this routine for 2 years since now with no problems).
