    hi all
    am new here so please bear with me ok i have been trying to sell a WWE MATTEL VINCE MCMAHON figure and i took a pic of it so its not a stock pic. so when i go to list it they let it go through at first but then i get an email saying that they removed it and i need to call them. and they did this like 3 times now. i had made 3 ebay accts and 3 paypal accts and hooked up phone #s and bank info and all that so i thought i was good to sell but i guess not.

    so anyone know how long you have to wait before you can sell anything on ebay???



    thanks all

    They usually send you a message when an item is removed. Didn't they tell you what was wrong?

    So why don't you contact them? It won't hurt, if you haven't done anything wrong.

    You've done several things wrong. 1st is using any type of "stock" photo. EB wants origional photos of the actual item. 2nd was creating multipal accounts with EB and PP. If it was same info then all account ca/will be linked and are useless now.

    You may need to prove to them that the item is genuine & it's yours. Good luck!

    ebay does not like the same person having more than one paypal acount or more than one ebay account linked to the same paypal - same person

    back in the day, they specifically said it was OK to have multiple ebay accounts

    now when you call them, you will hear about multiple accounts for the same person

    before you deny, ask your self: did I use the same computer - same internet connection? they can tell by IP address, proxy , etc.

    it is easier to accept and promise not to do it again

    you may be asked to go through a tutorial

    Ebay can be really annoying with their auction removal. I once had all my items removed and when I called them for an explanation they started feeding me b.s. Ebay seems to be hit and miss. Your auction might be removed, but someone who's selling obvious fakes is left alone. Only the people who work at Ebay know why. I was listing seo services and was making about $20 a day with 5 minutes work and then "poof* all my auctions gone. They couldn't explain why everyone else who was doing the exact same thing was untouched.

    Here arе ѕоme tips that соuld helр you.

    -Use stock photo or уour OWN photo
    -Always build your оwn descriptions, do not copy and paste movie descriptions оr technical info, thiѕ іѕ called intellectual property, eBay wіll cancel уour yоur listing іf you аre caught
    - Don't uѕе URL's tо оthеr sites tо describe theѕe products
    - Don't uѕе yоur website URL in yоur listings

    Those are thе basics, if уоur listings get canceled ebay will send you a violation and listing cancellation email describing what happened.
