I would like to see a suspension period in play as well as termination, I know there is an initial 30 day suspension to start, but during that period you are permitted from trading on that account.
So let's look at this scenario.
Someone just starting out with drop shipping gets into trouble with the delivery times, the average goes into the red, ebay whack a 30 day suspension on the account for poor seller performance.
Now ebay inform you that you have 30 days to improve you performance or you risk having not only that account terminated, but all your accounts, should you have more than one.
Of course you may well still have customers lining up to mark you down on delivery time, so that takes place during the 30 days, then ebay come along and terminate the account because you didn't improve the performance level.
Of course you didn't even have a chance as you were locked out for that period, and now you are terminated from ebay for the rest of your life!!
That's just an insane situation in my opinion. Zero flexibility in policies lead to these types of situations on ebay, and those that are just starting out can quite easily be terminated before they even have much of a clue as to what they are doing.
I hate a lot of ebay policies, but this one is simply lazy. Easier for them to make it black and white than to take the time to spend on each case individually.
Yep, plenty who should be banned are banned under the policy, unfortunately when you drag net for fish, you always get the ones that you weren't even trying to catch!
Quite typical of ebay policies right across the board really. If you are a small time seller just starting out, ebay don't have any interest in you at all. All you are is an annoyance, to them you take up their customer service time with your annoying questions, you make mistakes in listings that they have to hire people to hunt down, and at the end of the day you are making them virtually no money on your items or sales!
The last thing ebay wants is a small seller, and when you add new to the mix, they want you even less!
Only thing that shocks me is that they don't put more hurdles in the way of small sellers even getting an account to start with, then again wait for it, I'm sure it's been spoken about lol
