Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Hi there :)
Just need t get my response ready
Your rights in this situation will be rather limited unfortunately. eBay is a private platform and there is no general legal right to be allowed to sell on it. It is at their discretion that people are allowed to become members and as part of the user terms, certain restrictions could be imposed if necessary. However, if they believe that there are reasons to restrict someone's access, or even the access of people related to them, they can do that. It is like someone inviting you and your mom to their house but after an argument with her, they ask her to leave and subsequently you are asked to leave as well because you are associated with her. It is their house and they have the right who they allow in it. In just the same way ebay is a private website and they can decide who they allow in it, or what restrictions they place on users. I agree that it is unfair but is it illegal - not really, and that is what creates your rights in this situation, meaning there is little you can do to challenge this apart from continue to try and resolve it with ebay directly.
I see you are trying to exit chat - has your original query been answered or do you need me to clarify anything before I close this at my end?
