    Hi Guys,
    So I switched over to eb@ys new network becuase they said the old one was going kaput. Changed all my links and stuffed c00kies, and three weeks later they got me:

    "Dear eB@y Partner,

    During a recent review, we?ve found that you have violated the ePN Code of Conduct. We have determined that your promotional method involves stuffing eB@y cookies and/or directing users to eB@y without their consent. This type of behavior is prohibited. Therefore your account has been terminated and 100% of your pending commissions will be reversed. You are not permitted to rejoin the eB@y Partner Network."

    Ahh the heartbreak. I've been promoting them for about 6 months avg. about $500/month in a very nice niche market. $85 was a my high. I've been testing it and getting a couple of other sites ready - until this little bit of tragedy. Fortunately, this is not a major portion of my overall income, just a tangent of our base.

    Sooo, the question is, has anyone been kicked out and successfully signed up again? If so, was it with a new ssn or tax id? Its just so funny how its only been active for three weeks and bam, they are trolling. So as a warning, if you are stuffing, do it well, I got a little lazy on the conversions.

    That's very sad to know that EPN kicked you out. They are not even giving warning like the way CJ was doing. At least you are getting paid of what you earned.

    Were you cookie stuffing with correct referring URL ?

    What links were you using during cookie stuffing?....Banners are big no ..no as they are tracking which part of banner got clicked. Unless you know how to rotate pixels of banners, you should use their text link generator.

    To answer your question..

    Yes, you need diffrent tax ID in order to open new account. Check it out if you can use tax id of your near friends or relative ...otherwise you need to apply for EIN . Good luck with that.

    I thought he said the commissions were reversed? Thus he won't be getting paid, Im a little worried myself, even with the method I use, I have a lot of money in there that I really cant afford to lose.
