Default MC008 and my story!

Hi,
So here is my story, I was in the mid east and started my cosmetics business on an ebay like website there (ebay is not available there) I started from low end brands and build my customer base slowly and eventually started selling high end brands like mac (100% authentic, and it took me 3 years to find an authentic supplier)
Just when I took off with my sales, we had to move back to Canada. So I thought ok, I can sell on ebay. I opened an account, started selling, realized I couldnt sell more than 10 high end cosmetics items but could sell upto 100 a month. I have my own online store as well but needed ebay to generate traffic.
So I called them up (i know BIG mistake) to raise my limits, got the seller vetting, they wanted invoices, so I sent them, but then they wanted to know where my supplier was getting her stuff from and it had to be from Mac.. which obviously I couldnt get (who would reveal their source!) So they restricted me form seling in health and beauty altogether. I opened another account, seeing they didnt give me a chance, I worked hard and slow for a year, made power seller this month and hit my 99 feedback mark, I thought I would call them again (:() I did, got to seller vetting again, they looked into my account, blamed me for opening another account, I told them, you didnt give me a chance and i thought I would prove myself, i did nothing wrong. I even had the same paypal.. they said no, unless I can provide them with an invoice they cant let me sell. and I got an MC008 email from them :(

Anyways after going through this form, I realize I was super naive and stupid! I was totally under the radar, even got my limits removed from selling 10 to 100 high end items by the regular CSR and may have gotten 100 limt removed if I had my 10 FBR but noooo I got impatient.

Is there any other option other than stealth? Any advice will be appreciated!

Also if I do open another account from a different IP, computer, internet etc, if I eventually use my gargle sale account on my computer to list items, can they still trace it back? or is it just at the creation of account do you need a different IP?

Story is interesting but not unusual. Happens to quite a few people.

Time to go stealth - all info FRESH - all listings relatively NEW - keep operations separate.

I am not suspended though. All I see when I log in is a message that I Need to verify some stuff and I can not sell until that is done . So does that mean if I don't contact them nothing will change? Or will they remove limitation after some time on its own?

Some members don't agree. But, calling eBay seems to end badly more often than not. I have always been an advocate of just dealing with the limits eBay gives you. Sooner or later with enough feedback for products they eventually keep raising limits. eBay is hypersensitive to any kind of new activity anyone does on their accounts. It really is a shame.

Never forget, eBay is not your friend.

Stealth is the only answer

Welcome, stealth is what you need, being banned in a category means you are essentially banned if that is the only category you sell in

good luck

Have to go with the stealth guide.
You may feel like all is the end of the world.
You have to back yourself up before it all goes away.

When i jumped on here I was banned from eb, doing great monthly business and then woke up one morning and all was gone. I was in a hurry to get back up and screwed up a few times. Now I am getting going again.
Honestly, I have followed "Sandy D"'s posts and have gotten alot of information from her, indirectly.
If you follow her insight you will do well.
By the way "Sandy D",
thank you for your insight!!!

Stay ahead of the game!!!

That's 1 of the many ideas we try to get through to people, always spread sales...always under the radar.
