eBay taking no action against “Bad Actors” operating multiple duplicate accounts

eBay states it’s against eBay policies for a seller to operate multiple duplicate accounts or list the same item multiple times under a single account. This is because “Bad Actors” can dominate eBay search results with lots of listings of the same product, pushing out the compliant sellers who only list one product.

Most of the “Bad Actors” are overseas sellers, with many being listed in the Top 10 eBay Sellers in the World and making multi millions in sales. (https://www.webretailer.com/lean-commerce/worlds-top-ebay-sellers/).

eBay takes no action against these “Bad Actors”, even when it is reported to them. This is putting sellers who play by eBay’s rule book out of business.

eBay is putting its profits before its policies, the UK High St and not ensuring eBay is a level playing field for all sellers.

eBay states it’s against eBay policy to operate duplicate accounts and listings:

“Not allowed; Duplicate listings policy; Selling identical item listed separately by Multiple accounts belonging to same seller”

Joe Billante, eBay Vice President, statement to the Public Accounts Committee:

Joe Billante of eBay was quizzed by the Public Accounts Committee on 13th of September 2017 about Chinese sellers operating multiple accounts. Here is what was said:

Q62 Caroline Flint: Okay. Could I ask Mr Billante a couple of questions? In your opening answers you seemed quite confident about how many of your sellers had a VAT number listed on their sites, but I understand that there are something like 20 different Chinese seller accounts using the same VAT number. Are you aware of that?

Joe Billante: Yes. The reality is that people use the platform in different ways. These are not 20 different sellers; there are just reasons of pragmatism in terms of how they organise their business. It may look like they have 20 accounts because they put certain categories of certain goods into different accounts. When we look at enforcement actions against our own policies or against notices, we take into account all the seller’s activity, no matter how many different individual parts they have on our platform, and we take action across all of those consistently.

Q67 Caroline Flint: Yes. I suppose the thing is that those companies in the UK are much easier to track down, whereas we are talking about these overseas sellers: non-EU, and Chinese in particular. What might be a compliance measure or acceptable for an onshore business or within the EU may be different. Is that a fair comment?

Joe Billante: It would not make a difference in terms of our ability to link the accounts together. If the same seller wants to operate five accounts because it operates in five different categories, we are able to see that information internally as the seller signs up. We are able to link that together in our systems.

http://data.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/committeeevidence.svc/evidencedocument/public-accounts-committee/tackling-online-vat-fraud-and-error/oral/70106.html

So Joe Billante says it’s OK for a seller to operate multiple accounts as long as they are selling different products in different categories. eBay have internal systems in place to ensure compliance.

However this doesn’t ring true, as our example below prove; eBay is allowing sellers to operate duplicate accounts with multiply duplicate product listed in the same account. eBay does not enforce its own policies.

We assume there has been some kind of mix up in what Joe Billante has lead the PAC to believe. Perhaps the Public Accounts Committee should ask Joe Billante to clarify his statements. They should also remind him what the penalty is for misleading Parliament.

Next Step

It appears that Online Marketplaces are more interested in protecting their revenues rather than protecting their sellers, their customers or the UK High Street. We will be reporting our findings to the Public Accounts Committee, National Audit Office & the Government, recommending that further regulations are required for Online Marketplaces.

Example Duplicate Accounts:

Below we have listed some duplicate accounts that have been trading on eBay as far back as 2008.

Some of these sellers have been reported to eBay but no action has been taken against them.

The techniques using to operate duplicate accounts are:

  1. Listing the sample products multiple times on one or more accounts with variations in the product name and price.
  2. Registering accounts with different company names & addresses. However, after the recent changes in the liability laws, overseas sellers have to give company names & VAT numbers that eBay must check. So now you will see lots of Chinese accounts with the same company names and VAT numbers, with different contact details listing the same products. Before they could use made up company names and VAT numbers.
  3. Registering for multiple VAT numbers through multiple identities and using them on different accounts
  4. UK Sellers can register multiply accounts using different contact details with made up company names because eBay has no business verification process for UK sellers.

Please note we will be adding to this as we are made aware of seller operating duplicate account:

  • 1 to 45 – added 25/07/2018
  • 46 to 56 – added 26/07/2018
  • 57 – added 07/08/2018

IT will be interesting to see if eBay will now take action against these “Bad Actors”.

1) PMS Express Co Ltd – GB 256032034

UPDATE 7th August 2018 – all these accounts have been closed on 29th July 2018. Nice work, lets hope action will be taken against the rest of the sellers on the list.
