I don’t get it


You ever seen a kid outside a shop asking if you can get them a packet of fags? This thread is the equivalent of that.

Whys everyone jumping on OP's back? They are clearly trying to make their own way in life and make a living the honest way, if they have had nothing but positive feedback and lots of sales then good on them, I'd be proud if that was my kid doing that. They deserves respect not condemnation for what they are doing, theres lots of teens just loafing around with no direction in life this lad/lass clearly has ambitiononly for it to be thwarted by petty rules.

And how would anyone have known that you were not?
I don't remember ever saying this before, but.

Well Done, eBay.

They needed id after 3 months of very successful selling and only positive feedback and they stopped all of my funds. I had no choice but to give it them knowing they do not allow under 18. I sent it them scribbling out the dob and passport number but they wanted to see it so I had to and they banned me

Ok, so here is what you need to do then to start selling again on eBay. You sit and wait until you turn 18.

Then ask a parent to register on your behalf or go and sell on Gumtree. If Ebay terms and conditions state that you have to be over 18 to sell on there then I'm not sure what you want anyone here to do about it.

So even if you could make a new account, you would just suffer the same issue again.

Ahh ok😬they can unban me but I need to wait a year still
well done for trying to make money what's your secret
Why don't you ask your parents to make a account for them and you just use it?
You just need someone you trust.
No point making another account as you could lose money if they catch you.
Could try selling on gumtree or Facebook?

You are not old enough to use eBay as stated in their terms and conditions and so had your account deleted. You are asking us for help in using it again even though you have not yet reached the required age. That is why I compared the situation to a kid outside a shop asking a passer-by to help them get a packet of cigarettes.

This is why I don’t get it - why didn’t you just register in name of someone you know who is over 18.

Didn't you post something about not wanting your parents to see the money you've made that was in your bank account a few weeks back? Something doesn't add up here
What age did you give when you signed up?

Thought you meant. I was begging for money. I dont see any reason why it is bad that I'm selling on ebay whereas, using cigs is clearly negative

What were you selling out of interest? Did eBay send you an email confirming the reason for your ban that you take a screenshot of and post (filtering any personal information).

If you were making good money then good for you the future may be bright, were you paying tax on your profits?
Hi deals69. Hope you're well. So, back when you were asking about "hiding money" from your parents - that's where the money came from. Ebay sales? Had this come to light in that thread, it might have made a difference as some would have known you shouldn't have been able to do that. Is this why you were worried about your parents finding out?

Unless you were using a VPN, I would imagine Ebay will have your IP address anyway so I don't think setting up another account would get you very far. Have they seized your funds, by the way? They are no longer owners of Paypal so if your funds were there, you should be able to access them - unless; of course; Ebay have already informed PP of the situation. Paypal, I believe; is also an age 18 account restriction.

Whilst some of your actions might be seen as 'entrepreneurial' the real issue is of course the circumvention of the system. I'm not looking to chastise as it's not my place but I will say: "Silly billy." When you say "morally wrong" my friend, that's exactly what you DID do. If you meant to say you never hurt anyone - then that I would agree with. As for the 'legal' implications, I couldn't possibly comment but it would go along similar lines as fraud, I would imagine.

I wish you well and hope that this 'lesson' will not be a severe one. Life is full of them...

Kind regards, Phsy.

(P.S. - I really do hope this is not a TROLL post - as it wastes genuine people's time and help. )
Did they hold your funds in PayPal also?

This may go a little way to explain, harlzter. It's a 'bigger' picture...

hotukdeals.com/dis…306

People perhaps see it from an understandably different angle now. I too had an empathetic viewpoint originally but the fact that deception has been effectively used to 'make their way' doesn't seem the 'honest way' as you put it.

Agree. I can't believe how moralistic people are on this thread, 99% will dive on any glitches that will cause so much harm to small businesses and yet they attack a person who has come for advice from 'grown ups '.

In addition Ebay can be scummy so don't anyone go and defend them too much.

Mate, good luck in your venture.
