Do not panic! If your eBay account has been suspended, there is always a way to get back on! Why were you suspended in the first place? If you are a small entrepreneur, selling something personal online or a growing eBay based business, there is always a chance that you may get your eBay account suspended.
Get Your EBay Account Reinstated
Resolving an eBay Suspension can be difficult at times. The first thing you need to do is try to find out why your account was suspended. There are quite a few common causes of eBay account suspension. Ask yourself these questions:
- Have you paid all your seller fees? It is essential that all fees be properly paid.
- Have you violated some rules and regulations repeatedly? eBay might give you a leeway if you have violated some of their rules once or twice but repeated offense is a ground for account suspension.
- As a seller, do you have negative customer service satisfaction? Negative feedback from the buyer says a lot about you as a seller. eBay takes customer satisfaction seriously.
- If your phone number or other contact information invalid? EBay likes to check that your personal information is up to date by randomly attempting to contact you. If you have outdated personal details on your account, your account might be suspended.
It is a common mistake among eBay members to create a new account, repost all your items and continue selling. If you attempt to do this without covering your tracks, eBay will be able to link your accounts and shut you down once again. EBay has state of the art software and tools that can detect certain account connections. They can trace your IP address. They can connect your bank account information, what items you’re selling, among other details.
Getting Your Account Reinstated
The first thing to do: Contact eBay directly. Ask them how you can re-instate your account, resolve the issue and you may get lucky and get your account back. You have to be patient with eBay as they can take weeks or even months to get back to your inquire about your account at times. But once resolved, your account is open to trade again. When eBay makes that decision to re-activate your account, you can trade again but this time make sure that you read the fine print, especially their notification and conditions for reinstating your account. If you are not so much familiar with the rules, you can always read their FAQs to guide you. Read them carefully and make sure that your account won’t get suspended again.

Over the last decade the way we buy and sell has changed a great deal thanks largely to advancements taken through the Internet. This has allowed commerce to be faster than ever, allowing us to buy and sell more things in a faster and more secure way.
One of the best ways to do the auction game is on eBay, a longtime favorite auction website of many that has been running ever since the modern Internet era really took off. This auction site gives you the option of bidding on items or clicking “Buy It Now” to get them immediately for the price they are offered at. Many items, from car parts to health supplies to video games to toys, are often constantly popping up for bid. Gifts, necessities and a lot of other things are often available right when you need it, often for the price you want.
This site has allowed many people to get the items they need and want in a quick and orderly manner, but sometimes people run into trouble with their accounts which may get suspended. This is clearly an unpleasant occurrence that keeps people from making the most of the Internet’s purchasing features. Many things can be the reason behind a suspension – counterfeit goods, negative feedback and etc…, but the important thing for a seller is getting back in the game as soon as possible to save their reputation and make some money. There are guides available online to teach a suspended seller just how to get back in the game, like Ebay Stealth.
Investing in the right eBay Stealth can get a suspended seller unlimited lifetime updates of the guide that deal with current circumstances. They must also learn and remember how to be fully anonymous when browsing and selling, not only through eBay but anywhere online. As they will need a verified Paypal account, there are steps they will need to figure out to verify accounts without compromising their identity or even (for Americans) using their social security number. There are many other features and steps that can be learned, but all the effort is worth it to never have to deal with fear of suspension again.

The internet has been a great venue not only to shop for things in the fastest and most hassle-free way, but also to sell a variety of things and earn extra income. E-bay is the leading auction and shopping site used by almost 10 million people worldwide.
However, recently eBay suspended some account holders and informed them through email on the reasons why. A member may get suspended for different reasons. It can be due to reports of non-payment of outstanding e-Bay fees, problems with identity verification, listing auctions beyond their allowable number or copyright infringement. Once eBay suspended your account, you will no longer be able to access your account. You will receive an e-mail informing you of the suspension and automatically, all auctions that you listed in your account will be closed. Thus, you will not be able to get credit fees for ended listings. Your email account and other personal information associated with it will be blacklisted from the system. This means that if you try to create a new account upon the suspension of your previous account, the system will reject it. Having one’s account suspended for someone who relies on eBay to earn extra income can be devastating. You’ll lose your contacts and most importantly your current auctions. Thus, leading to losing your chance to somehow save more and get additional money for yourself and your family. No one wants this to happen.
The good news is there are ways on how you can go back to eBay. Start off by creating a new email account. Using your old email account may not be a good idea if you’re planning to create a new account on eBay. The website’s system has already noted your old email account and has already blacklisted it, so why would it want to accept another registration from it again? Once, you have been blacklisted from eBay, this means that any information you used when you had your first registration will be useless and will only get rejected no matter how you try several times. After registering a new email account, register a new PayPal account as well. Another important thing to remember and be cautious about is to make sure that the computer you are using is virus free, it can be a major factor for your account to be hacked and suspended.
Once you have done this, be more careful and wary of any links you add in your eBay account. Moreover, get to know how the system of online selling and auctioning are properly done in eBay. Not knowing the proper procedure may lead to another suspension of your account. It is always important to read the terms and conditions of any transaction that you involve yourself with. If you give importance to the reminders above, you will not have any future problems to deal with when it comes to sustaining your eBay account.
