Yes, we have just received some clarification regarding the drop-shipping. They are still providing the drop-shipping service, but are only releasing limited accounts so as to not over saturate the market and effect their existing account holders. So new account applicants are subject to meeting their qualifying criteria to be accepted.
While we didn't go into details about your application, they have stated that applications that don't meet their criteria will be rejected, so it looks like for whatever reason, you're application has just been rejected by them at this point.
They also told us that they will soon be releasing a new line of products and more account opportunities will then be available. So it might be worth while seeing if they will notify you directly when those new accounts be come available and you may have better luck with them at that point.
On point the seller made in their response is that they aren't keen on taking on any more eBay sellers. So that may well have been the reason for rejecting your application if that was your intended market place. A word of caution to other interested members as well regarding this supplier, eBay seems to be off the list for now, the supplier is quite happy with the current account holders who are servicing eBay.
