At the entry-level, which the company uses to demonstrate the concept of drop-shipping to new and potential affiliates, it was always going to be a question of who would get fed up first – eBay or Amazon?
Firing what appears to be the first bullet at DS Domination affiliates is eBay, specifically calling out a DS Domination affiliate’s “selling practices and business model”.
In a recent post on the MoneyMakerGroup forum, DS Domination affiliate “ProfessorX” shared the following message he received from eBay:
After reviewing your eBay account, we have concerns about your selling activity. As a result we’ve taken the following actions on your account:
– Selling privileges have been indefinitely restricted. You won’t be able to list new items. You’re also not allowed to register a new account.
– Some or all of your listings may have been removed. A list of any removed items will be listed further down in this email.
– We have credited any associated fees to your account.
Our decision is based on evidence from our records and our goal to keep eBay a safer place for buyers and sellers.
We’re not comfortable with your selling practices or business model, and we feel they don’t help to promote a positive buying and selling environment.
Please remember that you can’t use other accounts or register new accounts to sell on eBay. If you do, your accounts could be limited, restricted, or suspended.
eBay then go on to list 123 “as new” items he had listed on his eBay account, which were created in line with DS Domination’s claim that
any user can create an income within minutes. Simply by copy pasting product information from one company to another.
ProfessorX claims the account in question was ‘4 years (old), had a 100% feedback score and 45,000 dollar listing limit‘.
In their message outlining their concerns, eBay provided no recourse or appeal option for ProfessorX to engage in, nor did eBay seek any further information or an explanation before deciding to suspend the selling activity of the seller account.
Not surprisingly, ProfessorX is furious and appears to be done with DS Domination:
I’m sorry I ever came across this program. My ebay account has now been hit with permanent restrictions. All 123 items I had listed have now been removed and I am no longer able to list or sell any new items.
My friend who I share this account with is going to lose his mind tomorrow when he finds out that our account of 4 years that had a 100% feedback score and 45,000 dollar listing limit has been shut down.
This is total crap.
As of the time of publication I’m yet to see a response from DS Domination addressing eBay’s decision.
ProfessorX isn’t the only one having problems with DS Domination’s “list Amazon products on eBay” dropshipping approach though. MoneyMakerGroup forum poster “ibjulieb” shared her experience with DS Domination’s training last week:
I sometimes wonder how many people are actually making the 6 figures promised by Roger….I have followed the system to the “T”, have 350 really great items up, kickass titles, 100% feedback and am lucky if some of my 30 day listings get 2 or 3 views in a month.
I suspect that people who have never made a cent online are all ecstatic over a sale or two each day, which is what I manage, for hours of work. No “6 figures” here.
And I can’t, in good conscience, promote this to other people, with the inflated promises made by Roger, when the reality is otherwise.
I did all the things required to qualify as a Top Rated Seller. Indeed, I do get one or two sales a day…but with profit margins being what they are, that hardly propels me to a 4, 5 or 6 figure income.
If this is the first time you are hearing of challenges like these, you are not in the skype chats…people won’t say it in public chat, but privately, many are experiencing the same difficulties.
I applaud those of you who are making such a killing on ebay. I am not. After expenses, I am making a small amount of money each week.
Sometimes, I have 3 and 4 days in a row where I make NO sales. I can’t justify the added expense of the “upgrades” when that information is available elsewhere, for less.
Reach out to Roger? I don’t think so. He could care less…his only advice is to follow the system, watch the videos and wait to retire on the income.
Glad you are all having such success…but if you think it is across the board, you are mistaken.
To clarify, I haven’t seen any issues with eBay closing down any other DS Domination affiliate’s account yet, but from both Professorx and ibjulieb’s posts above, cracks are clearly starting to show in DS Domination’s adopted business model.
What will be interesting to see is if eBay, having investigated ProfessorX’s seller account and identified “selling practices” and a “business model” they’re not comfortable with, will now target other DS Domination affiliate’s eBay accounts.
eBay don’t have a problem with dropshipping per say, so this would appear to be a specific problem related to following DS Domination’s dropshipping advice and training.
I’ll certainly keep my eyes open on this end, and in the meantime stay tuned for a response from DS Domination on ProfessorX’s situation (probably around Monday US time).
