eBay for many has become a platform used to grow their business but more importantly, it is used as a tool to support their families. Many sellers depend on the platform as their only source of household income.

eBay amongst other online marketplace giants such as Amazon have changed consumer behaviour by creating a go-to marketplace for any online purchase.

These marketplaces hold way too much control over sellers and sellers always run the risk of their accounts being deactivated with no prior warning. This can be done at any given time without any explanation or notice.

This is a regular occurrence on these platforms and it can leave sellers with thousands of pounds worth of stock with no ability to re-sell or even make an appeal on the decision of being removed.

This results in families being left with no household income and can even leave some in dramatic debt that can take years to recover.

eBay’s motto is based around giving power to the seller and they say we are “stronger as one” but these platforms can take up to 20% of every item sold and offer little to no seller support.

There needs to be more protection in place for online sellers that use these platforms to prevent monopoly-like behaviour and give more and fair power to small businesses that keep these companies in business.

They must be forced to follow strict and clear procedures when attempting to remove a seller to avoid leaving them in financial ruin and give sellers the opportunity to rectify issues and have an un-automated process that must be reviewed on a case by case basis.

By signing this petition you will be contributing towards creating an overall fairer environment for independent businesses to trade and succeed in the online space whilst protecting their assets, livelihood and general wellbeing.
