Bidding restrictions on your account Sat Jun 04, 2022 07:13 PM Quote

Hello!
Why does my account have: Bidding restrictions on your account? At the moment, I have a German ebay account of my relative in Germany, but for some reason the sniper does not work. What could be the reason?

I have no way to check without the item number.
Anyway, if you don't want to share it, that's not your account. This is an item-specific restriction set by the seller.
Your manual bid would not work too due to the same restriction.

The following bid attempt was done per your request:
Item #394186102865

Status from eBay:
Bidding restrictions on your account

I tried betting in manual mode it worked.
But I didn't bid higher because I was hoping for myibidder

Voxen,
What was your bid amount on this listing when you tried it manually?
Also, why do you bid on the same listing from different accounts? You just increase the price for no reason.

Betting from the same account, I just decided to check the restrictions.

The full response from eBay reads the following:
"The item you are trying to purchase is not available for purchase in your location. You cannot buy this item."

It usually happens when you changed your shipping address after you bid manually and so the seller does not ship to the new address you set.
The listing indicates the seller ships to US only. If your shipping address was different during the last seconds, that may be the reason why your bid was blocked by eBay.

Please let me know the second question. Why do you snipe using different eBay accounts on the same listing? It just does not make sense in this case as you miss the advantage of proxy bidding.
I'm just curious.

I didn't change anything in the address.
I pre-bid manually to check the restrictions. Then I just waited for myibidder to work.

I bid from the same account that myibidder is tied to.

My bid is 1310.
Another buyer won with a bid of 1335.

Myibidder did not work due to restrictions.

The restrictions are not set by the sniper, they are set by the seller and controlled by eBay.

If you were able to bid manually, but could not bid on the last seconds, that means the seller changed the restrictions or something was changed on your account.
If you are saying you did not change anything, that means the seller did.
Please feel free to contact the seller to find out.

I don't think he had time to change anything. I looked at the stats a lot of bets don't work because of this. I have a US account and a US address that is many years old.

It's not a matter if he had time or not, the seller has the ability to make such changes.
Something was changed, but I can't see what was changed because I have no control over seller's account and your account.
I take your word that you did not change anything, so I can only suspect the seller changed something.

The sniper just submits your bid and nothing else. If eBay blocked it for one reason or another, the sniper just saves the response from eBay and passes to you.
The sniper does not handle any restrictions.

I'm still not sure if bidding from two different accounts may or may not cause the block of your bid. That's possible too.
I would recommend you to set a snipe from one account instead of two accounts in the future.
There are no benefits by sniping from two different accounts.

Hi. The program has not been working properly for several months now. for any lots I get a notification "Bidding restriction on your account". Definitely, this does not depend on the personal settings of the seller for a specific lot in relation to my account specifically. My opinion is that the problem is global, perhaps the platform determines situationally that the bet is made by a robot (application), and not a living person.

You did not provide the item number so I can't really check what happened in your case.
But why do you think the sniper decided if you are allowed to bid or not? And how it's being determined in this case?
