Have you checked that they received your returned item?

I also tried posting a Gameseek deal and got a pop up saying they were banned. It said something along the lines of we don't take decisions like these lightly...
So yes OP is right. They have been banned.

If they were banned, I'd expect there to be a message to that effect on their merchant page hotukdeals.com/dea….uk - that's odd that there isn't if you're getting that message still.

Hopefully one of the mods can clarify in the morning.

Yes hopefully and in the meantime I went ahead and ordered once again from them. When I checked my order history I had 7 cancelled/refunded orders and 0 fulfilled orders!

Fingers crossed it is 8th time lucky!

I've never had any significant issues with them, but I know that they have a reputation of often not honouring misprices - might that be the issue with your orders? What have you been/are you now ordering?

I've ordered PS4 games from them and the issue was always games showing 30+ in stock at my time of ordering, followed by me requesting a refund a month later when no game turned up. Mainly older games like X/X-2, which may explain why they didn't have the stock they claimed.

Im interested to see if they honour the Switch prices they promised, or if they wait until people get bored of waiting for stock and cancel.

Given that they've made an explicit announcement that they'll honour the price, I'd be very surprised to see them not doing so, as and when stock levels allow.

Hi, it came up saying the merchant is banned. I had a gameseek email saying Breath of the Wild Switch is £44.99 for limited time, checked it and it had gone up to £46.50, still best price going, checked here and surprised it hadn't been posted, so tried posting. Wii U version also best price £39.75

Yes

Yeah they really suck as a company. Back when i did order from them, i ordered smash bros for wii u, it was the last straw for me. They took my money and never sent me the game one month after release and it still didn't appear. It took numerous phone calls for them to figure out what was going on. And a further month and a half to get my money back. Terrible company, id avoid every time. Im very surprised they are honouring their switch pre orders, if not just a very few people actually receive them.
