What do I do if my eBay account is suspended?

If you are reading this, then there is a good chance that your eBay account has been suspended. It can be an incredibly frustrating experience but don’t let it get the best of you! There are many ways to try and fight back against being suspended on eBay. In this article, we will discuss what options are available to you if you have had your account suspended for any reason.

  1. Appeal to eBay

If you are sure that your account was shut down unfairly or if no clear reason for the suspension has been provided, then the first place that you should turn is eBay itself. You can submit a case and try and get their attention directly through this link:

  1. Contact the Seller Protection Team

Most suspensions fall under eBay’s seller protection policy. This means that the most likely reason for your account suspension would be due to a claim made against you by another user who purchased an item from you. If this is the case, then appealing directly to eBay might not do any good if their guidelines were followed correctly. Instead, you should contact them and ask how to resolve the claim. They will often times work with you to provide a solution that will satisfy both parties. You can reach their Seller Protection Team by submitting a case here:

  1. Remove any existing claims against your seller performance

If no claims have been made yet but your account is still under threat of suspension, then the most likely culprit is a negative rating on your seller performance. In order to prevent this from happening in the future, you should go through and try to resolve any outstanding issues with buyers. Continue working hard to provide positive experiences for everyone that leaves feedback!

  1. Filing a lawsuit against eBay

If none of these methods have worked for you and/or you feel that the suspension was done improperly, then there is always the option of filing a lawsuit against eBay. This will take a lot of time and money so it should only be considered as a last resort. More information about this can be found on Lawsuit Against eBay .

  1. Use another account and try not to break the rules again

One option, if you are certain that your first account was suspended for a flase reason, is to open up another one. This will allow you to take advantage of everything that eBay has to offer without putting at risk both your money and reputation. However, if your issue was within the past 30 days (or even if it wasn’t), then you are taking a risk by buying or selling under a new account. This option should also not be considered unless absolutely necessary.

If none of the above methods have worked for you, then there might be another issue at hand. There are several reasons that can cause suspension on eBay ranging from seller fraud to violation of user terms. Visit our Suspended on eBay page to find out more about potential problems with your account and how to resolve them.

Don’t give up hope yet, even if you are unsure which option above will work for you – there is still a chance that it will! If they don’t work the first time though, then you should try another option or file a case with eBay. We wish you the best of luck!
