I read about this on the CCBoard (children clothing discussions on ebay forums), and am not only saddened, but TICKED! ugh!
I've been trying to have 4 listings up, I get about 1 pulled each night. And relist the next night. I've been putting big warnings on the auctions to let bidders know what is going on with ebay, as well as to encourage them to use the BIN, or just contact me for a BIN, if there have already been bids. I think I'll link this thread if noone minds, because at least one mama has emailed me thinking it's a spoof (like some kind of sick sales tactic for me)
I've also found that emailing all bidders on your auctions helps, just so they have your contact info if/when the listing gets pulled, since it's not accessible once pulled. Something like:
"Hi, you are bidding on the XXX cloth diaper auction of mine. Ebay has recently decided to manually pull cloth diaper listings, saying they are ""adult material... used underwear ... inappropriate to list"". Once they pull an auction, bidders and sellers no longer have any record of the auction or contact info for eachother. So, I am just giving you my email, incase this gets pulled and you are interested in buying these directly from me (through paypal). Let's hope this stays up!
Anyhow, just a thought for y'all, since I had one at a bid of $20-ish and it got pulled and I had no idea of who the bidder was
I've had 2 folks take me up on off-ebay BIN's.
