Why are actual retailers allowed to sell on ebay?

Written by  on November 14, 2017

Got a great question for you. I think I got ebay on this.
So ebay has this awful policy where they state you are not allowed to attempt to make off-site sales.
In other words, if you makes sales on ebay, you can't contact those buyers and tell them you got your
own online store where they can just purchase DIRECTLY from you next time thereby saving money
for the buyer and the seller on ebay fees. Even if you HINT at attempting to doing it, you can get restricted and even banned forever….

Each account had over 10,000 feedback scores so they are very established and have been around for a while. Is this actually allowed?

Can Buyers on ebay scam sellers like this?

Honest question that really confuses me based on my observations of how ebay system works.
It seems that buyers can open up a case and claim they did not receive the item and request/demand for a refund.

The only way a seller can be 100% protected from losing an open case is to provide full tracking number that shows the item was SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERED. Once it shows that status, it gives you immunity from a "item not received" case, (of course they can open a claim that is "item not as…
