Default Preparing for the worst

Hello all! I'm fairly new here and wanted some advice on how i should approach not getting banned. I just received my first warning from estee from the integrity team over "prohibited items". They've removed all my 14 listings and refunded my fees as a curiosity. I do want to continue selling as i know the suspension is coming. If i were to take new photos or scrub the meta data for my photos would it make a difference for the future as i wont be flagged?

Any other advice would be appreciated!

Are you really asking this?

But what the heck. Do the same thing again. I'm sure it'll work out better this time. Or the next time. Or the one after that.

You need to change your product line or face constant bans.

Welcome to the forum. Time to learn stealth has arrived. All the best as you study the ways. They will serve you well.



With eBay, there are items that come under VeRo. You are selling items that will cause the death of your accounts.

Your choice on what you should do.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forums - all the best as you master stealth

@OP, first solve WHY your items are prohibited...do you know why?

First of all thank you all for the welcoming!

Yes i'm aware that my products are against TOS, but should stripping the meta data and changing new photos give me a longer time to stay on?

I'm not banned yet, but i do sense it coming! Just trying to make it last past the holidays

Thanks once again!

I've also done over 130+ sales and they finally started to crack down as sales picked up. Is stealth really possible in the U.S. knowing that you have to provide ssn now?

And which guide do you recommend? There's alot of different answers all over forum, is there just one condensed guide? Thanks for the patience and support guys!

new photos and stripping meta data is always recommended but as your account has already been flagged it wont really help if its the same item your selling.

Can one of the older and wiser ones explain to me wtf we are expected to go on telling people to do X Y or Z to enable ongoing selling of foo-foos.

And the reason for selling is their divine fe*king right?

I need that hand gun.

So either you were selling non-handmade items or copyrighted/trademarked items. Either way, doesn't matter what you do as your items will get flagged again down the road.

You could just stop selling *** and go legit... and not get banned or suspended at all, and wow, would life be easier for you.

Nah... what was I thinking... that's just CRAZY TALK!!!

What were you selling? If you are selling prohibited items sooner or later they will catch you.
