    Little background info
    I've been selling on ebay for over 4 months, have 100% FB Im a top rated seller.
    All info is real and verified, not stealth. I buy wholesale, not drop shipping.
    I'm not selling branded items.

    I called to get a limit increase, the guy was asking where I get my products.
    I just beat around the bush knowing ebay doesn't like aliexpess or alibaba ect.
    He gave me a increase of 25 items (125/6500 total).
    He told me to call in 30 days for another increase and told they will ask about my supplier.
    Its been 30 days and I'm wondering what I should tell ebay

    I would just say I source items from local companies and garage sales (depending on what you sell of course), but something along the lines of that.

    They will not accept verbal BS. They want to see some sort of Invoice with clear to make out contact info of your supplier. Sometimes they simply accept it as submitted other times they actually contact the supplier to verify. If you need assistance for such Invoices PM me and we see what can be done

    Here you go -

    1. Create a wholesale factory website using WordPress or something
    2. Use Microsoft Word and a simple template to make a invoice from that company.

    Done :)

    HAHAHAHA who do they think they are? Why would i give my lucrative niche to some employee working at eBay. I wouldn't take those scummy tactics from anyone.

    They didn't ask for invoice's. Just asked where I get it.
    I'm thinking about joining their World Wide Brand BS.
    I'm sure they just want to here I'm using their "compatible application"

    If it is not a formal notice and he was just talking to you then do not pay any attention to it.
