    This is my 4th time ebay suspends me.
    Why? This time i started dropshipping, but i don't know what i am doing wrong. I have listed 5 items to dropshipp in 6 days. I had this account since 1st of November with merely 2 feedbacks. Today i sold an item for 130 dollars (it actually worths 100$), BUT i was very disappointed to see that my account has been suspended

    I want to ask WHAT can i do to eventally dropship, starting again from zero. I know that the more shit i throw against the wall something will eventually stick. I am really frustated right now, because i can not figure out what i am doing wrong. Pleas guys i need some help. Thank you anyway for your time.

    I want to know from other people how the got under ebay's radar when they tried to dropship. I am curious how the get away with that. Cause there are others that claim to succesfully dropship. How is this even possble? Want some lights on this case!

    What exactly did the suspension message say? There are various reasons why they could suspend you - it doesn't necessarily mean the dropshipping was the problem. For example, it could be the item you were trying to sell was high risk so they removed the item and suspended your account.

    I sold a TV worth 100$ for 130$ and by the time someone bought it, ebay suspended me. Dunno why, but there are also sellers with as low as 20 feedbacks who sell the same NEW Tv for 150$. You think this is the reason?

    Well like I said, it could be so many different reasons so you'll have to copy and paste the suspension message here so we can get an idea. And then it'll be easier to say what happened.

    Original message
    Alert
    Your account has been suspended because recent account activity has raised serious security concerns. We've taken this precaution to protect our members and the eBay community.
    Due to the suspension, you won't be able to use your eBay account in any way. This includes using another existing account or registering a new account.
    Any outstanding selling fees are due immediately, and any amounts that you haven't previously disputed will be charged to the billing method currently on file.
    We appreciate your understanding.

    Sounds like you were linked to a suspended account.

    If it was because of removing a listing, you would have gotten a MC999 or similar, and then they would say which listings were removed. You account wouldn't necessarily have been suspended, just the listings would be gone (unless we're talking about a VERO item).

    Did you reuse any information from a suspended account, like IP address, phone, etc? Are you using a VPN/proxy? Did you reuse any pictures from a suspended account?

    Guys i did not logged in ebay with my previous banned accounts since November. Yes I did use same I.P and same phone for my newest account. Is this the reason why i got suspended ? If so, what can i do in order to change my IP ? I dunno what a VPN/ prxy is and neither do i used same pictures. All my listings have unfortunately been removed and i lost my selling privileges.

    The first thing you should do is contact CS.

    Both read the terms of their service, what you are selling, whether it is legal.

    Third how do you withdraw money floating there.

    I hope you solve your problem

    Did you not see the 8000 previous posts that says over and over again, that EVERYTHING has to be new on a stealth account? Dude, you need to do some research BEFORE you start making stealth accounts.

    Yeah you're going to have to start over. They won't reinstate the account because they linked you to a suspended account you had.

    Sometimes just unplugging your modem/router is good enough to change your IP (if you're in the US), but just look around at topics here and across the web about how to create stealth accounts and what you need to do to properly keep them safe from suspension. It's not a simple as just making a new account with the same information. You'll get suspended eventually if you reuse just about anything.

    The problem isn't going to be making new accounts; that can be done rather easily. The problem is you might put hundreds of hours into building an account and then you're going to get banned for something stupid that you could have avoided if you had spent 5 minutes extra.

    This is the exact message from ebay:

    After reviewing your eBay account, recent activity has raised serious security concerns. As a result, we've taken the following action on your account:
    - Your eBay account has been suspended indefinitely.
    - Item listings have been removed. A list of removed items is available further down in this email.

    You won't be able to use eBay in any way. This includes using another existing account or registering a new account. Any outstanding selling fees are due immediately, and any amounts that you haven't previously disputed will be charged to the billing method currently on file.

    We've taken this precaution to protect our members while we make sure that the activity doesn't cause harm -- however unintentionally -- to the eBay community.
