My account has had near 900 seller feedback in the past 12 months . Ive had a few people cancel their orders because either the item had a defect , they changed their mind etc. The account is also 3 year old which is alright too, but because I went below standard my listings no longer rank in the "best match" ( default ) search filter and the majority of sales I get are from my 150 followers . ( not so many , 1 or 2 per day ) I tried numerous ways to get back my rank and it doesnt work , even boosting my items by buying them from other accounts doesnt get them ranked anymore . Is it time for a new account ? Why is ebay so fucked ? I mean below standard is 2% and above standard is 0.50% ? 0.50% is near impossible for Christ sake . Here are my options that I figured could work but idk if they truly will . First of all create a listing for 1$ ( so I pay minimal taxes ) use a second account to buy that listing 200 times ( my limit ) and I have to do two months in a row , and even after buying it 400 times I I calculated my defect rate would go at 1.92 , which is pretty close to two . Do these rates reset themself in a certain period of time ? I don't really know what to do , someone please help . I mean I could always open another account but it would take another year to get it to this level + new accounts start with 10 items per month , retarded funds on hold etc.
