Thought you may want a heads up on this unique situation!
I have had several listings removed by a seller who claims I have infringed his patent - however I received an email from this same person stating I can resell the item due to me purchasing it from 1 of his 'ASSOCIATES' (Smell something here?) So I purchjased for Associate. Then Ebay pull the listing - I relisted it telling the Powerseller support and it was pulled again - however I sold the item on Craigslist - NO FEES = NO HASSLE!
The thing is I tried to list some DVD's yesterday and it comes up with, I can only list a certain number due to counterfiet products - this I understand - so I called Powerseller Support - they told me it was due to me having my listings removed for the patent issue and listing 1 product in the wrong category?? As a powerseller I Should know better.
Needless to say, I can work around these issues...I have read that Paypal represents 25% of the profit/revenue for Ebay so does anyone know of an alternative to Paypal that can take US and UK payments, I am based in the UK.
My main plan is to build 3 sites with the products that sell well on Ebay and list the odd 1 on Ebay, but send the traffic to my site to buy and pay - I Know this is against Ebays TOS, but I have found a way and it's legit, just!
So, instead of paying Ebay
