damn it

Dear celestehutchins,

We regret to inform you that your eBay account has been suspended due to concerns we have for the safety and integrity of the eBay community.

"Abusing eBay" of the eBay User Agreement states, in part:

"...we may limit, suspend, or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our website, remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Site if we think that they are creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies."

Due to the suspension of this account, please be advised you are prohibited from using eBay in any way. This includes the registering of a new account.

Please note that any seller fees due to eBay will immediately become due and payable. eBay will charge any amounts you have not previously disputed to the billing method currently on file.

Regards,

Safeharbor Department
eBay, Inc.

Bloody wankers.

Can I dispute this? Maybe I should move to another service?

Why? I don't get it. Is your auction dubious somehow?

Good luck working it out with ebay. Look forward to bidding in the next auction.

They have very strict restrictions about auctions for things that are not actually in your possession when you list them. You can only do it with things like pre-releases of Harry Potter or whatever if you are a brick and mortar shop who has been garunteed that you will actually receive said items.

However, they also allow you to sell services via eBay and I would argue that I'm selling a service and not a thing. No ownership is transfered through musical commissions. However, actions are undertaken which the commissioner benefits from. That's more like a service imo. I think Meet The Composer or some other group ought to start a portal for eCommissions. Some established non-profit org.
