    Why was it suspended? Can't you simply register a new one?

    You can buy eBay account's, or just setup a stealth account.

    "Unfortunately, some of the items listed in your shop do not appear to qualify for the Etsy marketplace. We are a venue for independent artists to sell their own handmade goods as well as Vintage items and Craft Supplies.

    As your items do not appear to meet the criteria to sell on Etsy, your shop has been suspended."

    Don't you think that they will just suspend your new shop? They disagree with the items you are posting

    Etsy is a big pain in the ass. You will have to assign your credit card anyway so it's a bit like PayPal. You can not use same credit card for a new account or you will get instant ban. I had same issue too. It just doesn't worth so much time from my point of view.
    Since we raped it hard, I've tried to create legit account to buy some stuff and I'm not able to do that. Funny stuff.

    My account was suspended for the same reason and like the guy above said, they are a big pain in the ass. New ip, email and cc should do it, but if you plan on selling i suggest you keep it legit. Otherwise it's more trouble than it's worth. Now i just keep an account for shopping.

    There's a pretty vigilant crowd on etsy that report non-handmade items so even if you manage a new account with different creds, it's only a matter of time before you are busted again.

    Just to mention, the majority of people reporting these items are other sellers fearful of others either moving in on their patch or over saturating the marketplace.
