ITA Especially when you click around and see listings with half a page just keywords (designers, celebrities, gadgets, etc) and they keep on running, while your's being cancelled for mentioning 1 or 2 designer
it is keyword spamming, because if someone puts in for example "new, vuitton, batignolles" your's would come up because you used the word "like new"
It's not just handbags, it's across the board.
I buy my DD Oilily clothing from eBay and if someone puts "like Oilily" in thier auction or description then their NOT Oilily stuff comes up in my search and wastes my time.
^^^I see. That sucks. They credited my account for the listing fees but its still a pain.
According to the email they sent it WAS the phrase "like new" that got me in trouble.
How was I supposed to know? is there a ebay rule books that I missed somewhere? not trying to be funny....I'm serious. I don't want this to happen again.
Sorry that happened but it's equally frustrating to buyers out looking for a new item. Also "like" is a trouble word. Ebay bots consider like to be a comparing word "like Chanel" or "like Juicy" which is a HUGE no-no. Use words like "mint" if it's like new.
I don't think it's stupid. She's not selling a new item, so to have it say new in the listing is misleading on searches. If I search for a new vuitton and get listings that are "like new", I would be frustrated. The correct wording is "used" since it isn't new. Or, to just say excellent condition or something like that.sorry, but that's just stupid ush: ... if they see that as keyword spamming, they hace to cancel everything that says NIB, BNIB, NWOT as well ... ebay gets weirder and weirder everyday
The issue isn't the word "like" that she used, but "new". So "practically new" would still be a problem. You can't say "new" for an item that is used. KWIM?I remember looking for Tiffany things a year or two ago (then learned not to try and buy Tiffany's from eBay). The number of six prong 'like' Tiffany settings that came up were mind-boggling.
Anywho... Maybe using the term 'practically new' would be more acceptable (for now at least).
