I got BANNED on Facebook Marketplace for Selling a PC...

  • Published on May 21, 2019
  • So I listed a Gaming PC on facebook market place and got shadow banned, which is basically like getting banned but facebook hopes you won't notice... (hoping you will quietly do nothing about it)... but basically its the same thing as a ban. So what can you do to get unbanned on the marketplace? Well today I share with you a solution... and it ain't a good one, especially if you have to make a new account, which apparently needs 3 months of activitiy to unlock the marketplace...

    I've been banned 4 or 5 times for selling PC's and Laptops .... easy work around .. only list off a new accounts. When making a new account, use orginal pics and make a few postings a month. Add a few people, it's not hard to do. Just don't be lazy. I maintain around 8 accounts all going thru a VPN all with orginal pictures, postings, etc etc etc and I have good sales on most of those accounts.

    It is a waste of time waiting for facebook to un ban you. Hardly any one works for faceyawn as I call them, everything is auto mated and replies are often ignored just going to dummy drops. Faceyawn would have to employ a million employees just to deal with customer complaints to which they are not going to do.

    Gumtree is way more rational. I've been banned few times, and every time I live chat them, they give me a second chance. Facebook fucktards show no mercy if you do something wrong. They punish you like there is not tomorrow. However, unfortunately, marketplace is a better and larger platform for business than Gumtree :(

    Make the other account - or 3 ;) Use a VPN on 3 different computers showing 3 different locations within your city - sell items to yourself - I'm sure it can probably trip something in the algorithm that will put you in good standing. Or just have 10 friends pretend they are buying stuff from you. ' Worth a shot!

    Had something similar happen and i ended up sending a letter to the closest fb office as registered mail. Sent it as registered mail for the tracking. This way they had to sign for it so i knew they got it. Within a week after my letter my issue was resolved.

    This is ridiculous man. I get FB has algorithms, & key words & such, but absolutely nothing wrong with your ad. Then you have no way to communicate with them that the error is on their part. The censorship, banning, shaddow banning has gotten way out of hand. But with FB especially. From the security/privacy issues, among other things, FB is just ruining themselves. I recently deleted my FB as I didn't really ever use it & then it got hacked. It was a funny thing too b/c just the other day a hashtag deletefb was trending #1 on twitter. FB is a valuable tool for people such as yourself to find various avenues to sell, and buyers to buy at the same time. But FB no longer fosters a healthy environment to do so. I mean, where are the explicit rules of what you can/can't have as words or wording in your ads?

    Something's gone wrong with Facebook Marketplace in England. I thought I too was shadow banned, but I've tried other accounts and the same thing happens. It no longer lists the new items first, your item gets buried near the bottom and you can no longer renew it. It's gone from being quite easy to sell things to just about impossible. Is it broken, is it deliberate? Who knows? Does anyone have any insider info?

    I didn't get banned but I got a listing removed. It was just a T-shirt with no fancy words, just a plain description. It auto removed my listing and said that it was against their TOS. It also did the same for my listing about computer repair.

    How do you get all these computer parts that you sell ? Shouldn't you start a computer hardware shop if you want to sell that many hardware ? Marketplace is meant for people who occasionally want to sell some stuff not the amount of products you offer.

    There's no messaging a "person". You're messages go to no one and they make sure you can't talk to anyone at all to make sure you're screwed over to the fullest extent and they have no consequences. You can't get a facebook representative to respond by any means unless you know one in person because they don't have that as an option. If you find an email, it's an inactive one that sends you an automated message to say it's no longer available. All you can do is click review and hope the algorithm restores it witch is very rare.
