I tried to post a deal for carparts4less.co.uk and it reported the merchant is banned - how do I find out why?

Because it wasn't really a deal. Just a code which they ALWAYS have available.

Fair enough, however I found their 5l of 5W30 engine oil @ £12.43 delivered to be the cheapest and I wanted to share!
(I appreciate the feedback btw - thanks! (y))

Hype were banned for the same reason but are allowed back now but all deals for them go into moderation. But i’ve seen the editors posting deals for them recently.

There maybe hope for carparts4less.
Yep banned for self promotion, loads got posted a while ago by just a couple of people and the ban came in soon after.

Think cp4l also has an issue with its colourful marketing claims and even more colourful accounting structure

I got told by 3 managers they decided they were not going to follow the consumers rights act when they sent me a faulty part. I had to email their CEO and got through to his PA very helpful and dieted things out but she couldn’t understand where I got his personal email from and she has never had anyone email him before.

They are a right mess to be honest and you can bet there is more to the company than meets the eye, and from news stories earlier in the year you start to see that and it’s accounting standpoint that’s certainly true.
Just post it in here instead. I buy loads of stuff from carparts4less and not had a problem yet.

Same with gsf.

I will get myself over there and search for oil myself.

Ta. OP
Is it semi synthetic oil?

They also have a ebay page which ironically may not be banned.

Who?

I’ve googled MandM sports and only M&M Direct came up who aren’t banned as far as I’m aware.

Yeah mandm direct


They must be new to the banned list I posted a deal on the 20th of Oct and someone else did on the 21st.
Hey Yep - MandMDirect are currently suspended for self promotion.

Really

I didn’t notice a flood of deal over the last week from them to trigger it although perhaps I wasn’t paying attention.

I’m only surprised as I’ve posted a lot of deals from M&M Direct as they usually have pretty good savings.

Glad I saw this won’t waste my time searching on there for deals

A lot of the self promotion doesn't make it to the boards because we catch it before it goes live so you guys will never see it.

Thanks and glad that your blocking what is effectively spam, however as someone who likes to find and share a good deal (I try to avoid sharing bad deals) why stop us posting a deal? Banning a suppliers URL doesn’t effect the supplier if you ban them, it effects us.
