eBay cancelled my account

    eBay sent me a message that it is canceling my account because it "has been dormant." It must be because I changed my HubPages account from my Yahoo email to my Gmail email. I did this because Yahoo has been giving me problems signing in, especially from other computers than my own. I have been trying to change all my main email to Gmail. Can anyone give me some advice as what to do? Thanks.

      To say your account has been dormant means that you've made no sales and no one has been clicking on your eBay ads. If they haven't cancelled your account yet, you could look up to see if that's true.

      I didn't know they could close your account down for that reason, I just learned something new.

        I saw a notice somewhere that Ebay was cracking down on dormant accounts.

    For me it was not approved at all. What could be the reason behind?

    Ebay has lost ground to Amazon big time. They are losing popularity. On Alexa.com you can see that their daily reach has dropped from 3 percent to 2 percent. That is huge. Amazon has dropped from 2.5 to 2. which is alot better.

      I've noticed that too. EBay sales are dropping off and Amazon has been ramping up for me.
      I know at one time Amazon almost dropped me because of inactivity, but then I started making sales, and now it's coming along quite nicely. In fact I just made my first large ticket sale on Amazon this week, and made almost $7.00 on one item that was sold.

    What do you mean by "daily reach"?

    Your eBay buyer/seller account, or your eBay affiliate account?

    Affiliate account. I thought it was because I'd changed my email address. They said I could open it up again, but I wasn't sure I knew how to do that. And if they close it again because I don't get clicks, what am I supposed to do, just keep doing it over and over again?
