The new eBay seller limits have been placed to help people become a successful seller. These limits are placed on specific categories, accounts, or items. These limits are placed on the members until they are able to provide certain information or give positive selling history. If the members understand the rules properly then they will be able to improve their selling experience and also increase the limits. People who have eBay store might face other selling limits in their account. One should always keep in mind that selling and buying from other existing accounts or creating new accounts to avoid limits is violation of policies created by eBay. Different types of limits are as follows:
• Account limits: In account limits eBay reviews the accounts of the members and confirms certain information of the seller. This limit is based on the selling activity of the member and can be increased with positive selling activities. The account limits don’t apply to Motor vehicles and Real Estate.
• Category limits: In this limit eBay restricts the items that can be listed by the seller in certain category for a certain period of time. These limits apply to those members, who have registered their account less than 90 days before, members that have not sold multiple items in that category, members who have not sold anything in that category, etc. It is important to have a positive selling history in the category where the seller is listing the item.
• Item limits: These limits are for a safer selling and buying history. eBay restricts the sale of items that are fake, unauthorized copies, or counterfeit items, etc.
Cancelling a transaction is the worst thing that can happen. In eBay the transactions that are cancelled are handled by the resolution centre. One should try not to cancel any transaction and continue with a successful sale and purchase. eBay has become stricter by bringing in new policies about the transactions. There have been many news letters sent to the members related to these policies related to the limits on sales and transaction cancellations. While cancelling the transaction people should contact the sellers and inform them that they would like to cancel the transaction and eBay would be sending a note to them to start this process. Whole process is solved in the resolution centre and eBay keeps a track of the dialogue between the seller and the buyer. Both the buyers and sellers must try to go through a smooth transaction and never cancel it.
