E-pattern sales still being allowed on eBay???

I have noticed a couple of sellers on eBay who are still getting away with selling e-patterns! As many of you sellers of e-patterns know by now, eBay stopped us from selling digital downloaded e-patterns some time ago.....I know that I had a lot of my e-patterns REMOVED by eBay before I had time to get them removed myself.
Anyway.....I am just wondering why this seller here is able to get away with selling her e-patterns on eBay ...PDF file (adobe) which is EMAILED to the customer!!!??? Why is she getting to and none of the rest of us??
Pass this link on......let me know if you think I read it wrong....but it CLEARLY states in her auctions that it is an E-MAIL PATTERN TO BE EMAILED!!!!
Here is a link......Scroll till you find the patterns listed....She has other things among the patterns as well...

Here is a link to the eBay policy.......

You can list digital delivered goods in the CLASSIFIED AD's on eBay for an outrageous price per month, but you are still NOT able to do any transactions through eBay....the buyer has to email you about the goods and do the transaction outside of eBay.....really a DUMB rule...but one that we ALL have to go by now......Not fair that this seller is able to continue to sell her e-patterns and the rest of us NOT!!
I have reported the listings, but nothing has been done....Maybe if MORE of us report, they will do something?????????

Just my thoughts.....But I feel if one of us can get away with it, then WHY NOT THE REST OF US who had to STOP or be kicked off of eBay for doing it!!!!??? :)

Will it be OK for us all to list our patterns like this? If so, then why do they remove some of ours and none of others?? I am a little confused I guess.....

Ok.....I am finished.....for now!! Just had to vent!! :)
Am I wrong??? :)

Is she selling under the classified ads instead of auction? I believe if she is then she can sell.

Becky said...

No..she is selling under AUCTION format...you can't do transactions under a classified ad..you can list and be seen on eBay under the classifieds but there is not a buy it now button....only contact email for contacting the seller about the classified....here is an example of a classified ad..
CLASSIFIED AD

You read her auctions correctly! I agree that if no one can then no can sell e-patterns. I loved buying email patterns and was mad when e-bay stopped them.

I've turned her into ebay too. And still, she's selling epatterns. I don't understand it.
It's completely not fair tho.
I'm STILL upset that Ebay done away with the selling of epatterns anyway.
I don't sell in the classifieds cuz no one thinks to look there. It's a waste of my time.
O well.....
Perhaps if we called Ebay customer support on the phone?

I couldn't list an item with "insurance is optional" in my lising. I know we can't do that now, but sometimes it slips by me. I can't understand how she can list and e -pattern. That's old news. What the Heck?

Good old ebay, I haven't bothered selling in months. They really ruined it for crafters and stopping epatterns hurt my business, I got a lot of new customers by using ebay too.

Same with insurance, no way will I mail without it, so now i just add 2 dollars to the handling fee.

INCREDIABLE!!! I reported the item yesterday and it is still for sale. I don't get it! Why are they allowing her to still sell epatterns?

Becky said...

Vicky....I've reported it SEVERAL times, and so have a few other people & yet they are STILL ALLOWING it to be sold as is.
AMAZING!!!!!! So I guess the rest of us should call eBay to let them know that we will start selling our e-patterns like hers, this way we can get by with it????

i think it was really silly in the beginning that Ebay took you guys off just because you are selling pattern by email.. silly really, and i believe ebay would of lost alot of it customers by doing so.. maybe you should give it a go by trying to sell a pattern on ebay - you never know your luck i guess..

I prefer e- patterns , they allow me the ease of printing the pattern on card stock, saves me loads of time, considering how many patterns I buy, and was put out that ebay stopped it, but I always have The Patternmart and I dont have to ((wait)) for the seller to email me , the pattern is right there at my finger tips,
Ebay has lost touch of the " easy factor" and the customer sees it, that may be their down fall.

I didn't see that date of the original post before I posted. Sorry for what I said. I didn't realize the listings had been changed. Retract.
