    I have noticed lately that many people who are hosting money mystery auctions are getting their accounts suspended w/ebay & pay pal. Why is that? :eek:oh:

    I noticed that too....I think it is because they do not word their auctions have to sell SOMETHING not the money

    That could be true. I just notice that many people with long term accounts have been losing their accounts. It could be a tax thing too.

    Yeah I just don't understand it...when I did my mystery Stuffed toys...I was careful how I worded everything....I made it clear over and over that you are bidding on the stuffed toy not the contents.....Who was it that sold the jars of money....he had three of them going and he kept getting pulled because he did not say "you are only bidding on the jar" the last time he finally caught on and worded it right...........

    Tax thing??? that is beyond me...maybe they didn't pay there fees??? I can't see how you could not though....Ebay does not miss a beat sucking my fee's outta my account every month...hmmmmmmmmmm who knows....kinda seems like Ebay picks and chooses who they like is all.........

    I believe that Ebay kept pulling the million dollar safe cuz it was really exploitation of seemed as if Ebay was tired of being made fun of......but it is true...anything will sell on Ebay....

    Well I got an e-mail from woohoo man today & he said that he was no longer taking pay pal payments for auctions because he was a high risk due to his bizarre auctions. I was wondering if Pay pal was concerned w/the IRS questioning them for these huge pay outs and no tax responsibility.

    Yeah...E-bay snatches $$$ from me too. And you are right; anything will sell on E-bay, so they need to not be so defensive and picky. They are still making money all the way around.

    oh yeah, i believe that, ive heard some horror stories before

    they gave me guff over an auction i had, of a video I MADE, of i band who gets a cut, and just because they are a dead tribute band i have to send in thousands of documents about copyrights. every time, they want more, i had phil lesh email them and still they are like "it all has to be notarized" ect. but how am i supposed to track him down and get him to sign something?

    ebay does seem to play favs.

    its the multi thousand feedback people who never really have trouble, you notice that?

    ebay does charge a lot on some stuff. i think the promotional (feature, ect) should be a % of final value, so i can sell my $5 item and not have to pay $20 to feature it

    who is gonna join me in starting a new and friendlier auction site?
