Angry Help Please!? Seller Restriction.

Hi, I don't sell a lot on ebay, but on occasion I'll stop procrastinating and eventually list something. Well today I went to revise a listing (drop the price on a couple things), and I got this "reminder":

...I have been selling since April or sometime around there, and never had this come up... From what I was able to figure from google this is usually done to accounts that got a negative or new sellers. I am neither. My account is in good standing, both PayPal and Ebay Verified (for what that's worth)... and relatively good DSR's.


So my question to you guys that are more experienced sellers on ebay, any idea why this would come up now? And how on earth do I get rid of it... if I have to sell <10 things a month for 3 months or something like that I'm screwed. I am strapped for cash and have dozens of things that need to go up before Christmas (legos, cards, art prints, memorabilia, etc.). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
-M


EDIT:** If you want to check my recent feedbacks, my ebay username is above and also on the left under my username on here.

Ugh, I hate dealing with eBay and PayPal customer service. Last time I had to call them was last January. The supervisor lady sounded like she had the damn headset mic up her nose. Loud breathing and muffle words.

Nope, I didn't figure I sold enough to warrant a store. As well as the fact that I have no credit card on record with ebay.

BINGO! I'm almost positive you need that bad boy to remove restrictions.

Bummer, so I guess it's not so much that I need to 'establish my reputation'... but more that eBay wants a backup source of payment... even though I consistently pay off my fees before they're billed/invoiced.

Either way guys, thanks for your help/input. I may have to call eBay Monday if this continues. I have a John David Booty card ending Sunday... I hope this doesn't mess with that.

I'm not so sure. I didn't have a credit card on file until about a week ago when I opened a store and I've been able to list as much as I want whenever I want. Granted, the credit card requirement could be new or something, I don't know.

I'd definitely contact them and find out on this one though. I don't see why the account in question got hit with restrictions.

I know they have been making changes. That's the only reason I suggest that. Again, I'm not 100% positive - but that's where I would start.

To the OP, I hope he gets it resolved.

Update: This is just getting idiotic now. I wish I had an alternative to eBay. I got an automated email today from ebay, and after scanning it- doesn't seem applicable to my problem, but then I see this bit at the bottom:


Well I go to the suggested chat and enter my information and then wait (watched a tv show) and finally a guy shows up. This is my conversation... can someone point out if I missed something, because in the hour it wasted- I don't see how I am any closer to getting my account de-limited. His solution was to send an email though a link that I did originally... which is was prompted the automated response which is what gave me the suggestion to try the live chat.




Lesson: everything to do with eBay is a pain in the ass and neither the people through online chat nor the people on the phone are helpful. Looks like I'll have to call corpo support tomorrow.

What annoys me the most is that I've been limited, but I've dealt with sellers with worse feedback and horrible shipping time/packaging/etc. and they have no issues. I buy a lot on ebay, and sell some- why the hell would they limit me; every time I sell or buy something, it's money in their pockets.
