    Hey guys I am really getting sick of eBay and Amazon. I was banned from Amazon for no apparent reason. I called them 3 times to find out why I was banned and none of the unprofessional reps could tell me anything. All they said was to file an appeal. So I went ahead and did it and got an email back a couple days later that said my appeal was denied and I am banned for life!!! They gave me absolutely no reason whatsoever which is f'ing ridiculous. I have no idea why I was banned. A friend told me that I might have been selling too fast for them and I didnt have a chance to get any positive feedback. And as for eBay, I am just fed up with the damn expensive fees.

    Does anybody have any experience in getting banned from Amazon? Is there a way around it?

    How, did you get sales through them? Do you own a few niche sites, own an Amazon product review site? What methods, did you do to earn these sales?

    It's a losing game selling webay/Amazon. They have all the power and control you are simply jumping through hoops every day praying they do not take a dislike to you. You are basically a parasite to them. Essential but thay'l lthink nothing of knocking you off should they chose. That's no way to run a biz!

    It's a very tricky game, and you need a careful balance. If you sell items that are high risk, you'll get suspended. But the key is to find out which items are high and/or low risk.

    You sold make-up? What category were you selling in? Last I knew they weren't letting any new sellers into health and beauty. If you were working around that ban by selling it in their "Everything Else" then that is your reason for the ban.As far as a new account, I don't have any experience with a new sellers account but it shouldn't be much harder than setting up a new Adsense account: new proxies, new name, new email address, new address, new SS#, new bank... I think that's everything.

    I guess I've been fortunate. I've ordered a lot from amazon used.

    I've only ever had two errors.

    One seller emailed me to make sure that I knew what I was ordering was an ebook rather than a paper copy like the website said it was. I cancelled the order and didn't have any problems.

    Another seller sent me the wrong book by mistake (2nd in the series instead of the 3rd). I emailed to let the seller know what happened and he sent me the correct book. He didn't want the other book back, so that was the end of it.

    I've been burned several times on ebay, but I've never actually been burned on amazon.

    Honestly, I've been doing ebay for years, and every 6 months it gets worse and worse. I ship out upwards of 200-300 packages a day, and between fees I lose well over 10% and when you include shipping and shipping material it's probably closer to 15%. That 15% isn't even off the profits, its off of the entire sale. The new rules coming up soon are going to destroy my sales, apparently they're doing sellers a favor by requiring them to ship within 24 hours or lose their power seller status. Probably about 5% of our products are made to order so we're sol.

    Create a new entity and get a new address *from a family member or friend) and start again. If you do the same thing again, you will get banned again, so I would try harder to find out why you were banned. Ask to talk with a supervisor every time you don't get a good enough answer. Everyone you will talk to has a boss, so after they spill their stupid shit, just say, I want to talk with yor supervisor, until you get an answer to your query..

    They tried to scare me by saying...if you try to make a new account in your husband's name or a relative's name then we will ban you.
