Default 11 year ebay member and i was banned!

Hey Everyone!

I have had an ebay account since 2001 and my wife decided to stay home with our baby so she started selling items (used clothes) on ebay last April. Our initial goal was just $40 a week so we could have some play money. The first month we grossed $800 and the the next three we grossed an average of $1400 which we were blown away! In may we were put on restriction (low DSR's) and we continued to sell like we were doing before (selling at .99 due to cheap insertion and charging $8.99 for shipping) until they limited us in July to $930 or 230 items. So we decided to change our selling model and bring down the shipping to resonable rates, TOO LITTLE TOO LATE! We were banned Aug 1st. I know you are saying to yourself why didnt you adjust the first month you were on restriction and I would say because we were ignorant and thought we would not change until we had to. So when we had to change it was way to late. I wouldnt have thought they would have BANNED us for life. I only sold around 50-60 items in the last 11 years prior to April and didn't realize how strict things have gotten. We have learned our lesson and will put Aspkins book into effect within the next week! Wish me luck! I'm not glad i had to go through this but i think after this is all said and done I will be alot more informed and a heck of alot better of an ebayer.

New member, same story. Learn from your mistakes, and go stealth.

Make sure you understand how to be stealth to a "T", and try to get back on so your limits can get raised before the holiday season. Good luck!
