Listed an item for sale on eBay and I'm getting a bunch of offers from new buyers with 0 feedback.

What's that supposed to mean?
Probably scammers. I get these all the time, with some sending offers higher than listing price.

What do they gain? I sold it to one and they just never responded, no payment,no shipping question etc.

Why are they doing it?

They probably hope that you'll ship without payment. A few weeks ago I had 2 orders from more sophisticated scammers. They used someones account to buy with a stolen credit card, then tried to intercept the shipment I sent to the buyer, to try to reroute it to them. Thank God a keen eyed Postal inspector noticed that an item was marked as returned to sender but wasn't returning to sender, rather to a third address. She called me to ask about it and saved me $1400(Macbook). Since then I've only shipped with UPS for high value items.

I won an eBay auction for a store GC.
The next day I got a message from the seller:
"There was a user demanding the card to be shipped to their address saying it was you but a different account they're using, which doesn't make sense. If it is you then just let me know. "
 
I told him NO, and gave him my correct name and address.


If he'd shipped it to the scammer, I would have opened a case and won.  And he would have been out the money.


Only send to the address on file at ebay (or paypal)!

What's with all the ebay coupons lately?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I don't understand the article.

What will be the alternative for sellers?
Amazon? Why didn't they do that to begin with.

Some random platform thats not in the crosshairs of the states? Not so many buyers. Plus if they get big they become a target.
Jack of all trades, master of none.

I shipped one package straight to a buyers group and they shut my account. Was on the phone with a rep for over 30 minutes and got nowhere. Anyone to talk to to get it reopened?
One minor offense closes you for good?
I got an email today about my account being suspended for making too many orders while using guest checkout and circumventing the ebay polices.
  @Dan writes on the ms how one can place multiple orders with the coupon while using guest checkout, you are prone to have your account locked by doing that, which I'm not sure why Dan advertises such activity without writing proceed with caution or...
  Any matching info will be linked and have yourself shut down.
  There's ways to create stealth account and move on,  but why be busy with that when you can avoid the issue to begin with.

  Email I received looked like this,

Hello myi,

My account has long been banned and any other account i open is also banned after 1 or 2 orders. I was able to keep it for a bit by using a different shipping and different paypal account but I once slipped and had an order shipped to my old address and it was immediately shut down. So it might work to try that as long as your very careful to keep everything completely separate from the old one 
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
