    I received an email from Ebay saying that my account is being terminated due to being attached to a previous banned account.

    My question is how is this possible or how does this come about.

    I only have one EPN account.
    All I did was build a website and added ebay banner codes.

    Nothing else.. Can someone shed some light on this?

    Much appreciated.

    :rolleyes:

    Did you purchase your EPN or apply for it yourself?

    Was your eBay account suspended? Or did you actually cookie stuff something?

    Yes, it was suspended and no cookie stuffing. Strictly whitehat. That's why this is baffling. I even wrote them an email stating how legit my site was to Ebay and they came back a month later stating that my account will still be suspended.

    This all happened a while back. I was just curious as to how this could happen.

    Besides, since then I have moved and have re-applied and now I am awaiting an answer. Hopefully they say yes.

    The question was:

    was your ebay (or paypal) account suspended BEFORE your EPN was suspended?

    If it was, then there's your answer.

    Well eBay, EPN, and PayPal have long been known to just ban people on a whim. Or it could be that you held a cookie they didn't like when you logged in. I don't really know if they can do that, but you get what I'm saying. It could have been anything so best not to dwell on it. They are one of the most annoying companies in the world.

    Don't you understand what epn is doing? They are booting thousands of people
    every day! They terminated a friend of mine and said that his account was closed for
    lack of use! He makes $3-5k a month.

    Their parent company (ebay) is not that much better. A couple years ago, they said that sellers could no longer leave neg feedback!! Makes good business sense, right?

    It's turned into another bullshit site with all the retail buy it nows, etc. They have buy dot com, and a whole lot of other crap.

    Man, don't get me started!! Actually, I will.......back in early 2000 ebay wall so much fun. You could even sell an antique rifle on it. But since it's in Calif, no more of that stuff. Ok I agree, to a point.

    Whoops, sorry...you asked about epn. Yup, they suck and it's going to get worse. Was soooo much better when CJ ran it - you could actually speak to them on the phone!!

    Just like the Governor of Cally says: You Are Terminated! Sorry!

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    EPN did the same to me, total white hat, never banned with anything [had a powerseller account at the time also]

    basically its a fuck you, they still get your traffic and dont have to pay you [if you have stuff set up that you can not take down easily]

    I had my EPN account terminated yesterday too. All I had was a lot of blogs using Ebay RSS feeds which were driving 300 to 400 visitors a day to Ebay - all pretty much white hat ! The email stated the reason as "cookie stuffing" - which I am 100% sure I was not doing. The most amazing thing is that after disabling the account they are still receiving traffic from these websites. At least Google blanks out your ads - when they dump you so they are not benefiting from free clicks. With Ebay it total BS as they are receiving traffic from you but do not want to compensate you any more - it is totally outrageous.

    I agree with some of the people's responses and that they just terminate your account for
    no apparent reason.

    Maybe it has to do with your domain name.

    Did you buy it from someone else?

    Did you check whether it had been registered before?

    Often people get kicked out because their domain name was banned when when it belonged to a previous owner, or was associated with a banned site.

    I created a program that assist power buyers on eBay and has been approved by eBay dev team. Actually it's geared for power buyers to be able to buy more BUY IT NOW items. Have just a handful of users first few months where total sales from just a few people are 1.5-2Million a month using Buy It Now items only.

    Would EPN work for this type of "traffic" driver. ...where it's repeat buyers but most of the items they wouldn't have otherwise purchased where our tool helps them to see if faster and streamline the decision making and checkout process?

    Any guestimate (if this type of model works for EPN) that if we drove 5 buyer ID's on eBay to purchase 1 million/month in electronic items on eBay, what that would equate to? (a rough guesstimate does the trick for now ;)

    Thanks so much in advance! I've got a great tool ...not just trying to figure out how to monetize on it !
