This isn't much different than telemarketers spoofing phone calls which there are currently bills in congress to make it a felony to do so

It doesn't matter whether or not eBay uses proxies I would think. Couldn't their employees just look at the site at home anyway?

Granted but since when did that ever stop them from limiting an account when you tried to withdraw $100 after maybe doing a few hundred dollars of business? I can't wait till one of us comes on here to complain that their $50 is being held for 21 days.

What I find strange and what I believe needs to be discussed is their "less than 5% of payments" sentence. So far, they told us that unless you have:

* Less than 6 months registered on eBay
* Less than 100 feedback
and some other things..

They MAY hold your funds. Whether in eBay terms that means they WILL hold the funds, we don't know.

Surely it's NOT only 5% of eBay sellers that have been registered for 6+ months and have 100 feedback. Surely not, I mean come on ...

So does it affect about 5% of sellers that have less than 100 feedback? Or is the 5% estimate those buyers that have less than 100 feedback?

By the way, notice how they say if you have 20+ feedback and a detailed rating of 4.5 your funds won't be held?

Ebay also likes ebay accounts older than 6 months.


But anyway, ebay also said DSRs of 1 or 2 will count as bad to you.

Great, so a competitor can bid on your item. You can't leave him negative feedback, but he can leave you a DSR of 1 on each row, causing you to be a "bad seller" and having your funds locked up for 21 days on top.

All these new restrictions take away from the business of selling without repercussion makes them (eby and PP) money and not you in the long run. I don't have these problems anymore outside of the ebay community. Even when my customers use paypal, they know what they are getting and without incident from ebay.

Ebay controls their sellers now. Sellers have lost their rights IMHO. I sell my Veros without incident without using ebay. No one buys Veros on ebay anymore when they can get it cheaper and faster someplace else and privately.

Not all auction marketplace sites that accept paypal want intrusive garbage from an ebay-owned site that is dictating the rules. Sellers need to get back to the business of running their own businesses, and finally leave PP in the gutter, and go merchant account.

ebay is no longer a trusted name.

That is exactly what happened to me and I got suspended. I have been waving that red alert ever since. The "buyers" are dubious, and many are ebay staff itself.

The people making the real money are their employees with sellers accounts.

Well.. we all have our own opinions, I know this much.. there are some Extremely Intelligent folks on this Forum.
- Whatever they throw at us, we'll overcome.
--BTW- if Aspkins Forum grows some more, Paypal + Ebay will have to hire more staff! Its Absolutely Amazing the ideas + sharing that goes on here!

-- I have been a member of the Rolex Forums for years, and thats BORING compared to in here.. (+ most of those folks own yachts + the like) )

They are "supposed" to send you a courtesy email, advising you they are ebay employees, bidding on your items, its a generic email with their user id, and where theyre from, i.e. ebay canada, etc, I have had many over the years,, funny thing--- never sold to any, guess my reserves always too high for them?

The question is, after the 21 days are up ..can you withdraw all funds immediately? Or will they slap you with a limitation if you try to withdraw say $1000 at once?

How can they interfere with your auction that way? Why are they getting involved in the bidding process?? They have to be breaking some law by doing this.
