Over the years I have had a few spats with eBay about one thing or another, despite having other sources of income (always remember not to put all your eggs in one basket) I still sell on eBay.
I sell largely on autopilot on what I call a continual sales system (CSS). I am a great believer in doing the work once, i.e. writing one excellent description and listing that will be used for years. Apart from the occasional minor tweaks it has been very successful.
eBay have however with there continual changes almost wiped out my business on no less than three occasions, its vociferous courting of high street retailers and big brands have pushed out a lot of the small traders. I was once banned for 21 days for selling a product that was on sale in several high street stores and which is still being sold in these shops today.
Only last week I looked at all the eBay trader’s information that I had saved. I was shocked to discover that almost 40% of them no longer trade on eBay. Perhaps victims of the ever changing policies? This continual change has led me to diversify what I do online to include Amazon Kindle, my own products and affiliate marketing. I still do sell on eBay but the latest spat with eBay just takes the biscuit.
I sell a product for £2 (approx $3) Make Money On eBay Wholesale Suppliers List Where The Powersellers Get Stock. It is list of wholesale suppliers that I have used to build my own business on eBay.
I have been told this week that it has been banned for violating yet another eBay policy. I have been selling this for years and is my best selling Information Product on eBay.
I got the usual link to the eBay policy, and have replied to the message, here is a short extract.
Do you not think that anyone buying a list with the title Make Money On eBay Wholesale Suppliers List. “Secret Sources revealed: Where The Powersellers Buy Their Stock” from eBay would be selling the stock they bought on eBay?
I did an eBay search for wholesale lists and got 207 returns across all categories and 14 in Information Products, these 14 appear to be identical in content to my own now banned offering.
I have asked for a full response to my message not another reference to an eBay policy page, is that an airborne porcine I see out the window?
