Removed Listings "Circumvention of Fees"

I had some listings removed by eBay, I know for definite that other sellers on eBay are using the same wording that got my items removed.
Yet despite my reporting these items to eBay, they still haven't removed the other sellers items!
I have contact them at Customer Support, they have told me that action has been taken, yet the said listings are still live on eBay.
Everytime I contact eBay I get the same reply, but nothing is being done about it, what can I do?
eBay have said that all sellers should abide by the same rules, but it's not happening in this case!

    Ebay tricked me into closing this case! Now they have washed their hands of all responsibility. Nothing has changed and the seller is mute!

Then stop selling emails
just dont put anything like ill send u the info on how to get it by email or dont put ur phone number in and say that contact me so that i dont have to pay ebay fees or anything similar to that such as putting ur paypal accnt in there and telling the buyer to pay u directly so tht u can cancel the listing to get ur fees back
if u continue to do this they;ll bann ur accnt just like mine got banned
and some of them got removed while the others didnt because one of two things
ebay doesnt have the time to go through all the 6 million auctions each day
or someone reported u and when they did they didnt report every listing only some of them

In order to place an item on ebay to sell is there a forty cent charge for each item, no matter what the item your selling is?

You are partially correct in your understanding: there is a fee just for listing an item to sell. It is not, however, a flat 40 cents. eBay uses a graded insertion (listing) fee system that depends on the starting bid of the item you list. Below is a summary of the tiers, with the starting bid range on the left, and the insertion fee on the right:

$0.01 - $0.99: $0.10
$1.00 - $9.99: $0.25
$10.00 - $24.99: $0.50
$25.00 - $49.99: $0.75
$50.00 - $199.99: $1.00
$200.00 or more: $2.00

Listing upgrades, such as bold titles and additional title lines, will incur additional fees.

eBay currently waives the insertion fee for user's first 50 listings per month. This policy may not be applicable to all sellers, however, and it does not encompass listing upgrades such as those listed above.

I am a first time ebay seller, and when I set up the sell, I kept making changes, at the end before I clicked on to pay, the page closed. I went back in and set up a new sell item, but I am concerned that...

Unless you push the button EDIT changes, your item will remain the same without any changes. If you do double list, just contact EBay's help centre, I'm sure they will cancel one of the listings.

Do I need a web site to advertise?? Can I advertise items from companies such as "coleman" addias etc??

Hi there!
You don't necessarily need a website since it'll cost you to maintain one but you can register with eBay and create a seller account and you will just pay for seller fees. And if you are going to sell branded items, please check their policy with copy right or you may end up getting suspended for violating policies.
I hope this helps a bit. Have a great day!

Why do they charge $0:50 listing fee in one item listed for 424$, then they charge $20 listing fee for another item, same price of 425$? Pls some one help.

With regard to your question, you were charged $0.50 insertion fee for the listing with a starting price of $24.00 because according to the table of fee for Auction-style format listings, starting price which ranges from $10.00-$24.99 will be charged $0.50. Now, for your other listing wherein you were charge $20.00 it is possible that it is listed under the Business &amp; Industrial Capital Equipment category.

Okay if I understand you correctly you are no longer buying the truck you are just covering their seller fees charged by Ebay since you backed out of the deal, right?
Yes Ebay charges seller a closing fee upon closing a sale you never completed the sale so the buyer can file a NON PAYING BIDDER claim which reimburse the buyer of the fees Ebay charged.
The buyer could also do a second chance offer to the second highest bidder. Trust me the seller has options one of them is not to charge a winning bidder closing fees for an incomplete sale.

I want to put something up for sale and i dont know how to do this

First if you have an eBay account, you will just need to upgrade it to a seller's account, once you create a listing on eBay you will be automatically routed to a page to create a sellers account. To create a listing, just click on "Sell" tab on the upper rigt corner of your eBay page. Then click on "Start selling", it will ask you to choose a category and just click on "Continue" button until you reach the page to "Submit your listing".

Ebay Removed My Listings Without Warning

I used to work in the clothing business a long time ago.  I wonder if comes from complaints from the clothing companies because of some people out there selling brand name clothing that could be counterfeit.  They could have been threatening them with legal action.  I think if you can prove where the clothes are coming from you can get them re listed.
EBay cancels auctions based on complaints from other customers if there is any suspicion of fraud.  The only other time I heard of any auctions being cancelled is when some have tried to sell organs.
Good luck on that.
