I think I am about to lose it now - every time eBay removes an auction due to a hijacked bidder account, I lose about 24 hours on the sale (listing at the appropriate time/day, relisting the item, waiting for it to show up on searches). I am getting about 3 to 4 a week now, and it is driving me absolutely insane. I started writing my account manager some solutions and I was thinking that if more eBay sellers could do the same thing, it might be more helpful. I was on the phone at midnight yesterday talking to seller support and venting, and the guy also agreed they were good suggestions and that they would all forward them along to the appropriate decision-makers. Today I received a similar email saying such suggestions may be considered. Below is my email, please feel free to write eBay with similar or new suggestions as well to please stop this madness with the TKO floodings. If enough people write, someone might listen. I mean these changes are not THAT hard. "I have been getting an increased number of TKO notices and ended listings, averaging 3 per week. If I am a bulk seller then I can see how it would not really affect my business, but as you know my items are unique high-end authentic pre-owned and vintage designer pieces that are not duplicate in quantity - there is only one of each. Therefore, my business is being extremely hurt by this process of the TKO notices. Please read on: It is not that I fault Ebay for removing the listing once it is determined that an unauthorized bid took place. That sounds right. However, what hurts my business is that it takes up to TWELVE HOURS after re-listing the item on Ebay for it to show up in searches, not to mention the fact that previous watchers of the prematurely ended items are not aware of such a relist unless they search for it again (which may not always be likely). Therefore, I would like to see something like the following changes be implemented to the listings of sellers who have been victim to this TKO issue: 1) For all listings ending prematurely with TKO, notify all members "watching" the item, of the removal and that it is not the seller's fault; 2) When the seller relists this item, allow for immediate posting/make it immediately searchable on Ebay (if this poses security issues then perhaps you can include a clause saying that the descriptions must be identical, or even include a link feature to import the description or ad from the previous removed ad) 3) IF NUMBER TWO CANNOT BE DONE, when the item is relisted, put a link in the "ebay item removed" page that shows when the original item was visited that guides the viewer to the relisted ad I agree, Ebay cannot do anything about unauthorized bidding activity beyond the efforts it is taking currently, and I do commend Ebay for taking such measures to protect both buyers and sellers from fraudulent activity. What Ebay can do and is not doing is to make this process seamless for the seller whose auctions and sales are affected. EVERY TIME THERE IS A TKO NOTICE, I LOSE ABOUT 24 HOURS (and extra man-hours) fixing the problem. I look forward to your response and seeing how Ebay can help rectify this situation in the sellers' favor as well as for the buyers."
