    I have a list of about 100 Medal of Honor beta keys, and wanted to put up an auction on eBay. So I put up an auction lastnight lasting 30 days, with buy it now as the option of purchase.

    This morning while I was at work, somebody purchased one..5 mins later, eBay took down my auction saying this:
    [FONT=Arial, Verdana]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Verdana]

    [/FONT]Why was my listing removed, when I've seen MANY other people selling keys for Starcraft II, MoH, etc. How do other auctions stay active and mine was removed that quickly?

    Is there any tricks I can use to keep my auction up? I spent money on the keys, so I don't want them to go to waste and not get any money out of them.

    1. It's pretty hard to make to what you're trying to say, at least use a translator if you barely know english.
    2. No, the auctions were never removed when the Starcraft II beta was running and people had auctions up for beta keys.
    3. This forum lists methods of auctioning replica items, which is against eBay ToS as well, and I am not selling any "replica" or "bootleg" versions.
    4. It says "beta software, pirated, duplicated, bootleg items" which is not what I have. I just have a code, not any software or pirated copies of anything.

    I just want to know if there's anything I can do in my auction, word it differently or whatever, for it to stay up.

    The term beta and medal of honor probably strikes a flag with eBay, I got mine removed after 16 hours, but made 15 sales at $5 a pop. Try to remove the term beta and see how it works out for you. :)

    Thanks for the info. If it gets removed again, will my paypal account be affected at all?

    Nah your paypal account shouldn't be affected, but eBay account would get suspended temporarily usually for 3 then 7 days if you keep doing it. After 120 days the eBay warnings usually gets cleared. You'd get your PayPal account limited though if they believe you're money laundering of committing fraud such as selling and distributing private Microsoft product keys.
