    so, i got my amazon seller account banned for the fourth time yesterday for intellectual property infringement. for my first account in 2012 i made $87,000 in six months from selling mouse pads & iphone cases, but i didnt even get banned for ip infringement then. (i was a ip infringin' sonaofabitch! lol) i got banned because i was getting so many orders daily that i had a 75% late order shipment rate and amazon only allows a 4% late order shipment rate. my second acct got banned because i still had my old amazon login info linked to my stamps.com account, so when i went to print postage it tried to log into my old amazon account. d'ohh!!!. i honestly cant even remember what i got banned for the third time, (it couldve been my ip address) but it was obviously for not following the rules. so after spending nearly $2000 on 3 different business llcs, checking accounts and a new pc, i was on my fourth account. the money was a fraction of what i made in 2012, but i was back in the game. everyday i would check my email for new orders but i always felt like a nervous outlaw because i knew one day i would get the dreaded account suspension email from seller-performance-policy@amazon.com. well, today it came. this aint my first rodeo so it didnt sting as bad. i went through the motions of filing my appeal and of course it was denied in a canned, automated response. but this time i decided to call seller support and ask them why it was denied and the person told me my appeal was too short and vague and that i need to send another appeal and they will make a decision from there. i won't get my hopes up but anything can happen. but that got me to thinking: "what if pigs really can fly and i do get my account reinstated?" will i just figure out a way to self sabotage myself again? i've been banned from adsense - twice, youtube, fiverr, and chitika. who da fuq gets banned from chitika? im getting too old for this shyt man and i need to break this cycle. so if anyone wants to chime in with some advice you can. and if not - fuq u 2.

    1. Either stop breaking the rules, or stop complaining about it. You can't have it both ways.

    2. Please use sentences and paragraphs - it makes it much easier for people to read.

    You can't even follow the rules of basic English writing.


    So you know you do wrong, but still do it anyway and cause yourself unnecessary problems.

    Break it down into clear concise sentences and paragraphs... I know you are pissed and ranting, but nobody wants to strain themselves by reading such a large wall of text.

    Easy to read and understand equals easy to answer questions.... Difficult or annoying to read equals ignoring your delima and flamin cause you dont know nuthin bout right grammer an shit.

    Here is the best thing to do.
    Make your own dynasty and be your own king.
    That way, the rules will be yours and regulations will be yours. You won't have to care what you do.
    Or, be a citizen of some other dynasty and follow their rules and regulations.

    sure, no problem. back in 2012 amazon was a lot more lenient in enforcing ip infringement rules. and i was an ip infringin' sonofabitch. i used to get about 100 - 200 orders a day for nfl nba ncaa nhl, batman, marvel comics, bleach, one piece ferrari porsche, etc. mouse pads. and posters and iphone cases too. it's a wonder i never got sued by them. ironically, one of my biggest orders was from the university of arizona sun devils for univ of arizona mouse pads. but i also got big orders from seton hall, the san diego chargers and the the colorado rockies ticket office. i even got reddit bombed for selling league of legends mouse pads. i guess because i was generating so much money in such a short period of time, amazon looked the other way - or big business didn't care enough to complain about my operation. im sure my account would have been flagged for ip infringement sooner or later, but the reason i got banned in that case was because i wound up having a 75% late order shipment rate when amazon only allows for a 4% late order shipment rate. they really tried to work with me until they couldnt anymore. i used to have a little bs video website that made a couple hundred from ad revenue each month and i used to do fiverr gigs as well, but when i started getting those $7k & $13k checks from amazon every two weeks i said "fukk that shyt."

    He was being ironic.

    You missed his intentional bad spelling and punctuation of dilemma, flaming, because, don't, nothing, about and and.

    3 different people also mentioned you should use sentences and paragraphs - which you ignored.

    I guess there's no hope for you - I look forward to your 'Fuck, I've just been banned from Amazon for the 5th time!' thread

    its a known fact that guys bitch and moan about grammar and punctuation on a black hat website of all places are less sexually attractive to females. but then again, you could be gay. if so, disregard that statement. and if i do get banned again. no nuts, no glory right? you'll still be here on the sidelines commentating about nothing, scared to make a move in either direction no matter what.

    see post #11. after reading that if you want to go the legit route and make non infringing mouse pads and posters to sell on amazon, youll need a large format printer for your posters, a sublimation printer with a sublimation c.i.s.s. for your iphone cases and either a modified workforce 1100 or workforce 7010 with a c.i.s.s. to print your mouse pads. i buy all my supplies from coastal business and best blanks and i learned everything i needed to get up and running on the t shirt forums. oh yeah, i buy my large format printer paper from adorama and b&h photo. and that's pretty much it.

    Is it really that easy to print mouse pads and make that much money off it? Considering if you don't ship late and follow the rules. $87k in half a year is a very decent profit.

    no man, its easy to print mouse pads - all you need is photoshop, wallbase (thats where i downloaded all of the images!) and one of the printers i mentioned. however, it's impossible to make that much money off of selling mousepads in six months UNLESS youre cheating on amazon like i was doing. it's either that or youre paying google five or six figures a month for a top SERPs spot like zazzle or cafepress for that keyword. in a way it was worth it to me because i did a lot of good things with that money but in the end i guess it was bad for me because i guess im starting all over once again. but i dont know which way im leaning so i made this thread.
