Well one thing that you might try is craig's list, you can probably sell most of them on there and save money at the same time...
I can tell you for a fact that it is another seller who is having your listings pulled. I had the same problem some time back and it can be really frustrating. Ebay personnel told me that they depend on 'other ebay members' to report most all of thefraudulent listings.And there is a 'report button' located at the bottom of every auction listing. All anyone has to do is punch that button and the listing will most likely be removed. However there are a ton of unscurpulous sellers who target new and inexperienced sellers by having their listings pulled. This helps them limit their competion..
I can also tell you that about 99.9 percent of the designer goods being sold on ebay are indeed fake. This being said, ebay has to 'limit their liaibility' by supposedly enforcing vero rights.
This is what ebay vero personnel told me: If a vero owner (verifyed rights owner) reports an item as infringing their trademark an/or copyright, ebay will immediatly pull that listing with no questions asked. If the listing is reported by another ebay member,then an ebay vero employee will look at that listing and based on what they see in the listing, then make a decision as to wether or not to leave or remove the listing based on their findings...
This policy limits lawsuits and liaibility on ebay by showing that they are activly trying to protect vero members copyrights and trademarks..
However,,do you really think that ebay wants to remove ALL of the fraudulent listings?
Do you realize how much in listing fees and final value fees ebay would lose each day if they really shut down all of the bad listings?
Just look at designer handbags. There are around 50,000 listings per day and about 99 percent of those are fakes. The average listing fee for a designer handbag will be about $5.00 plus whatever the final value fee is going to be depending on what the bag sells for. Thats $250,000 per day in just the listing fees for only ONE designer catagory. And the final value fees will be way higher than that..
Do you really think ebay is willing to give up that kind of cash? That is why you see some listing being closed and yet a ton of other still running..They want to give the impression that they are trying to enforce vero rights but yet still let the majority of the listings run..
This is what I used to do when selling designer shirts and handbags:
Always take a picture of the receipt and any authenticity card and/or markings and include those with your listing. Also contact ebay and send them copies of your goods, receipts, cards and of your intent to sell.
Remember that under the 'first right of sale' law. You have the right to sell any item that you purchased leagally as long as that item is not fake, thereby infringing upon someone's copyright or trademark..Put a note at the top of your listing stating that your item is authentic and anyone trying to tamper with by falsly removing your listing, will have legal action taken against them.
Also remember that even though the vero owner cannot stop you from selling a legally aquired item, that you cannot use their photos and descriptions of that item. If you do this they can still have your listing pulled..That being said, you should take your own photos of the items and describe the item in your own words..
Hope this helps..
