Default Mercari Asking For SSN Now

Just a heads up, I just got asked for my SSN on Mercari. I already was ID verified and after I complied with what they asked I received this,

Hi there,

Thank you for completing the verification process!

It looks like your Mercari account is being ran as a business, however, we currently do not support business accounts. In order to proceed, we need clarification regarding your account activity.

We are requesting the following pieces of information to assist us with our review of your account:

Are you conducting business as a sole proprietor/ Limited Liability Company (LLC)/ Partnership/ or Corporation?
What are your anticipated activities and volume (i.e. top selling items)?
Where are you sourcing your inventory from?
If a wholesaler, do you have a wholesale/distributor agreement?
Do you currently have the listed items in your possession?
We appreciate your patience and look forward to your response!

Best,
Account Specialist
Team Mercari


I have no doubts I'll get my account reinstated but I imagine this will affect lots of people once this becomes more common.

Iíve had the account for about a year. When I opened it I verified it with my ID and selfie. Yesterday I got a restriction asking to verify my identity. After I did that (where I had to include my SSN), this was the email I received.

It seems that Mercari accounts opened starting mid 2019 are getting these type of document request. Just recalling old threads I read from last year.

I don't remember how old my mercari is and I haven't gotten any type of requests.
But then again, I've only done about $3000 total todate.

I have moved $8,000. They didnít respond yet which pisses me off. I didnít do anything to violate the terms.

Some guy tried to buy 6 items all at once and sent this stupid message saying he wanted to buy 15k every few days. He also tried to buy on my other platforms. I understand to an extent the restriction but itís ridiculous Iím held accountable for someone elseís actions. Iím not a wholesaler, and never responded to the individual.... smh.

Iím going to call them Monday if they donít respond. I donít appreciate them restricting my access to everything without providing a solid reason why. And I have over 1k sitting in my account. Really annoying.

8k over a one year timespan is considered a ďwholesalerĒ? 8k is not a lot of money smh. That is on average $1,500 per month. I sell higher priced items. One individual tried to buy 6 items from me. One individual. So because one single person attempts to it blankets my 80 other transactions under this?

Sure, whatever you say

No it was clearly because this individual tried to buy to many items all at once. In my case at least. Then sent a stupid message implying ridiculous high risk transactions. All his items were cancelled within the same hour of my own restriction claiming my account was ďflaggedĒ for verification. Itís same thing on eBay. If you pass a threshold you get flagged. I know this was a bot who flagged me. And whoever manually reviewed the message somehow equated his message to me condoning it.

$8k? that's it?

Ok it must be something else then. Unless there's an invisible rule that once you hit above $5k they ask for ssn .
But that's unlikely.

I’m not going to say anything else because this is a public forum but I got my account fixed and should be fine moving forward.
