Don't fall for this one

Yesterday, supposedly opened their venue to sellers of collectibles in the "everything else" category.  Dumbass that I am, I applied. Supplied my tax number, my checking account info and all my websites and venues. 

BTW I've sold online for 18 years. NOT like I started yesterday. 

Well don't fall for that BS. They are NOT accepting people in that category and I have the email to prove it.

Thank you for your interest in selling on the Marketplace. Unfortunately we are unable to open your selling account at this time for the following reason:

· Your product is not something we are looking to carry at this time

We receive a large number of seller applications each day and have set up these guidelines to help us manage the marketplace effectively. We do thank you for your interest and will keep your application on file in case there are opportunities for us to work together in the future.

Thanks for your interest in selling on Marketplace.

Why do companies do this?? If they don't want collectibles dealers, fine. But don't say you do and reject the first 200 or whatever apply.  And DON'T expect me to reapply later or to shop there any more (Yes I do shop there..oh wait DID used to shop there.)

  1. Hey Beth,

    I sent you a note but just wanted to post something also. We got the timing a little wrong here. My interview with John was done on Thursday and was a scoop for my brother. This is a timing thing. I was surprised to hear this morning that several sellers had received similar emails.

    Sorry for the trouble and the error on our part. Trust me on this, since I am the one running this new store. You are exactly the type of seller and product we want on Solid seller ratings and great Collectibles product.

    Please accept my apology for the way this was handled.
