I was moving quite a few shirts on eBay a few months ago and the policy police began ending my auctions. They are cracking down on violations such as size options and links to sites selling similar merchandise. I even started hiding links by making banners clickable and such and their "screen scraping" applications caught them and ended multiple auctions of mine... while bids were in on the items. I have since cut our eBay sales way back.jdr8271 said:you can get away with all of those things though, as long as your selling alot of shirts. Ebay only makes statements by ending auctions, with people who dont sell much.
jdr8271... is not so anymore . . ebay has their police pink pups surfing the site looking for violations . . there are several main things that they have been keeping close track on . . . corporation trademark/copyright infringements... illegal items, white keywords, choice, and they have always kept a close eye on website links, oversize banners/icons, etc . .directing bidders/buyers to or for out of auction sales . .jdr8271 said:you can get away with all of those things though, as long as your selling alot of shirts.

This is simply not true... they have ended no fewer than a dozen of my auctions for "small infractions" like having a link to my website in the auction and/or including sizing options in an auction.CJK440 said:The worst thing that can happen is you get a warning. Ebay is here to make money and will not stop you for some small infractions.
when you list articles of clothing there is a drop down to specify what size the item is... you are allowed to leave this blank, however, when you proceed it tells you that this method of listing my be in violation of eBay's regulations. I started putting a line in my auction instructing the winner to specify what size they wanted. Even though I had it listed as a medium or large.CJK440 said:As for the size listings. What if you didn't list a size at all?? I imagine an interested party would inquire in which you can just tell them they choose after the auction. If you have an original design, they aren't going to just go to the next guy.
