    I Just got a mc999 message from ebay and I have a serious problem.

    The message said:

    We need information from you before you will be allowed to sell on eBay again.

    We would like to know the supplier of your Dr. Dre Beats.

    This is the documentation we need:

    Proof of Merchandise

    ?Invoices from suppliers showing supplier's name, contact information, date and invoice number. Invoices must be itemized and include pricing information per item.

    ?Receipts from retail stores and outlets that include store name, location and contact details.

    ?Proof of payment for invoices and/or receipts. Proof of payment can be in the form of confirmed wire transfers, credit card receipts, checks, credit card statements, or PayPal Transaction Detail statements.

    ?Supplier contract

    Other

    ?Tracking Information
    ?Delivery Information

    ?For security reason, we don't accept email attachments.
    ?You'll need to fax the information to the number provided in the email we sent.

    ?Once you've faxed your information (please send an email to let us know it's been sent) we should be able to get back to you within approximately 72 hours.

    I have had about 30 stealth accounts and this is the first time I have ever been asked to fax Proof of Merchandise.

    The Identity Proof and the Address Proof part on the mc999 is a cake walk. I have faxed them that information and done it dozens of times and they lift the restriction on my account everytime afterwards.

    But never one time have I been asked to provide Proof of Merchandise. I need some help with providing documentation of a supplier.

    Where or who can I get the documents for a suppler?

    I need anything that looks legit and would be ok with ebay.

    I would pay for the service of course by paypal.

    Im looking for some one who has had this problem in the past and has goten through it many times with ease.

    Thanks.

    Personally, whenever I ran into this in the past I just left the account and used another stealth account and kept selling.

    Can I ask how many did you sell to warrant that message? I'm guessing it was a lot. Buy it now, free postage? Also do you sell on eBay.com or .uk etc?

    You won't be able to falsify this information for their request, because eBay will actually contact them.

    The account has had over 500 positive feedbacks, The account is a power seller and has very high selling limits , and The account has top rated seller status.

    That particular stealth account that got the mc999 has never had any blowbacks!

    I mean not one negitive feedback, Not one return or opened case agasint me, Not one bad message or complaint.

    Im so mad right now If I end up loseing that account I will screw paypal big time for this.

    I would really like to know how that account got a mc999 to begin with ebay must be randomly putting mc999's on high selling accounts now to make sure what you are selling is safe.

    I only sold on ebay.com

    Try these steps mate:

    1. Go to a discount retail store and buy something where you get a receipt.
    2. Scan the receipt.
    3. Use Gimp or PS to edit the numbers and item description on the receipt.

    There you go! Now do you really think eBay is going to call up Bobs electronics store and ask about your purchase that was
    made awhile back? No way! At least very unlikely.

    Good luck bro!

    PS: To the guys who say leave it. +500 feedback is not an account you want to leave. Fight like hell to keep it. If you lose then at least you tried! :)

    In most cases, you can fake an invoice and eBay will never call them. Because Beats are highly faked, eBay has a pre-existing relationship with the Dr. Dre Beats company thats located in Nevada to eliminate the amount of fakes being sold on eBay. This exists because eBay could possibly be sued in the future for allowing a market place to exist that doesn't pursue copyright infringement. If you sell more than a couple, eBay flags your account because they want to verify that you are an authorized retailer of that product. So even if you go and buy 10 from the store and get a receipt for 10, eBay may not let you sell all 10 because you aren't an authorized retailer for that item.

    That is not how you handle an account with 500+ feedback mate :)

    actually purpandgold88 is correct. Doesn't matter really when it comes to phaking a invoice for the items he sold on eBay. Its not like an PayPal account is limited, its a eBay account. The % of you fixing this account is very very low. You need to make several account's, and spread out the sales. It doesn't matter if the account has 10 feedback or 100,000 feedback. eBay will shut you down if they feel you are some type of threat. Best to sell 2 high risk items a week on 5 accounts, then 10 high risk items on one established account. It makes sense to eBay, and you don't look like a threat to anyone else. Good Luck!

    Just like to add that beats by dr. dre are like a big red flag if you're selling them due to the amount of counterfeits on the market. Plus if you also open a new account I would not advise to start off selling those either because they'd probably restrict that account very quickly.
    As to how to fix the current problem... Sounds like they're gonna need some legit docs so not sure what to tell you.

    You should never sell anything high risk or name brand like Dre beats on a new account. Ebay will catch this and send you an mc999 quickly. Avoid listing these types of items for the first month of your new account and you will be in a better position as the accounts ages.

    I have a pawn shop and I am running into the same issue. I sent them my purchase contract invoices of where I get my product and it still didn't seem to help. I guess I need to find out how to make some stealth accounts. What is the best way to go about setting those up. I am an ebay veteran, we did everything legit but it still didn't seem to matter to ebay.

    Hi, I need your help, I called eBay to request a higher selling limits as I recived a promotional offer to list 100k, my account can sell up to 300 a month. When speaking with them, requested me to email my suppliers and restricted my account only to list new products, now the only thing I need is to provide them Receipts or invoices for the items I would like to sell. Already faxed some suppliers from china, but still requesting new eBay Certified Suppliers, and what I do is Drop Shipping Orders from my suppliers, can you help me on how to get new invoices with eBay Certified Suppliers?
