Hi, first let me explain. According to ebay, you cannot link to a store website outside of ebay on your auction ad. Your only allowed to link to ebay stores. However, you can put 3 links to whatever you like ( except questionable content)outside of ebay on your about me page if you want to.
So anyway, I was linking my outside store directly on my auctions and have been getting away with it for some time now. I figured they would catch me sooner or later but they never did.
I am having a decent sized train items auction this week coming up and I decided to put my store banner on my auctions and link it to my about me page which in turn will give a link to my store (totally within the rules right?). I mean it might have my store name on the banner but it isnt linked to any outside website right?.
Anyway, after I got them all ready for scheduling I got to thinking maybe I better not put the banner on my ads for fear of them cancelling my ads after I have invested my time and money for listing fee's, so I went in and edited every single one and took the banner off. Now it just says visit my online store with a View My About Me Page link.
I really want the banner on there so my question is, would I be breaking ebays rules if I did put the banner on them? I mean technically Im not breaking the rules if it has my store name on the banner but is actually linked to my about me page, am I? I cant seem to find an answer to this on ebay and from everything I have read, It seems Im ok to do it.
Thanks in advance for your help. William
