    hope you did not have to much money there, especially with all those xmas shopping. i been reading on ebay forums, you are not only one who they been doing this, it seems they are trying to save money or something.if your traffic was legit then maybe give them a jingle or email.well good luck hope it will work out.

    Despite what people say, a low epc is not good and this is probably what got you canned.

    Again thank you for working to make us richer, but screw off.
    That's what psises me off the most about this. They're such dicks about it and so pompus. That's what happens when one company dominates its genre so heavily.. there's hardly any other auction sites worth considering.

    yeah my highest was $769 one day.

    for those who still have active strong epn accounts. how are you promoting the products? are you using site scripts? i'm just trying to think of a safe game plan so that my new epn account doesnt get banned.

    You can try targeting more specific longtail keywords so you can bring in better targeted traffic from search engines. Longtails you would use If you were shopping for a specific product to buy.

    How much ACRU's did you get? Also an EPC of $7 is not really common with the high affiliate earners I think.. I only stuff eBay auctions, make around ?500 a day now with an EPC constantly between 29-34, but I also think they look at the ACRU's you get, which is really the key to look at for them in terms of targetted/high quality traffic I think. Last month I had 16 ACRU's, traffic quality labeled 'Very High' by EPN (I love them :p)

    cru = confirmed registered user (a person who signs up to ebay under your aff link)

    acru = 'active cru' a person who signs up and then purchases.

    I only do whitehat BANS sites with my E*P*N* acct and my EPC is always around $15 or so. Last month I made about $500. I must still be in their good graces. I'd be very upset if I lost my account.:(
