    Possibly. It may be caught in the CL filter and is commonly referred to as "ghosting" ads. It usually happens if you are using a proxy ip outside of the geographical area, your ad has spammy keywords, or you've been using an email/account that has been used too many times. But by the looks of it, it seems like your ip is the problem if you don't post that much.

    It's really hard for people outside of the US to place ads in US cities unless you use private us proxies. This is because sales/ads are supposed to be local, which means ads with foreign ads will almost never get posted.

    Yeah I know, this sucks but CL has really cracked down on the rules. People who spam or post a lot know how to get around the filters. People who are new to posting ads or maybe just want to post one or two ads get screwed. It's a struggle to get their ads up.

    So who wants to dropship and make $20 each bag sold?
    Can you sell 20 bags or more weekly?
