    Now I have a good supplier for clearomizers.

    I intended to sell them on eBay, because I found many sellers there offering them and completed listings showed me they sell quite well.
    I listed one for 3 days, about 10 hours before the end of the auction eBay removed my listing telling me it is not allowed to sell e-cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol related products etc.
    Now this is NO electronic cigarette, but only an accessory for it. If I look now on eBay, there are still 75 active listings with this product. So why did they remove my listing and not other ones?
    Also, are they complete idiots or why do they even suggest me a category when I type "clearomizer" in the title field when I made the auction? They suggest me a category instead of telling me I cannot list this? Personally, this looks like scam to me. Normally, if you intend to list something that is not allowed to list, they are obliged to tell you this fact and to prevent listing of such products instead of letting you go through and later on remove the listing.
    But instead of this, they even remove ENDED and SOLD listings. Do they have a screw loose?

    You're better trying to sell them on vaping forums, e-cigarette accessories are easily to shift locally but not online without a proper setup it seems...

    Hi,
    It's not possible to reason with Ebay, I say that from my experience! I listed a cell phone unlock service under "cellphone", and was told it needed to be listed under "services", so it was delisted. I called them numerous times saying there were several dozen identical listings to mine, why were they not removed? Their answer - We don't know - we'll look in to it, but told me again not to relist under that category. After trying for 3 months to get a viable answer, I finally gave up!
    To sum up: Don't try to reason with an idiot or argue with a fool!

    Yes, sometimes I also think there are idiots working at eBay. So last time they removed an ENDED and PAID netflix code. So I already received the money from the buyer, he left positive feedback. Then they ended it telling me they refund my fees. Ok great, so this auction was for free *lol* But they told me it is allowed to sell these codes, but only if they are sent by post, not by email. But in my listing I wrote "It will be shipped to you within 24 hours by USPS" and I selected "one day shipping" as shipping method. So how can they think it has been sent by email??? The buyer works for eBay and reported me? *lol*
