Facebook Marketplace Bans, Account Reviews, & Tricks to Input Tracking #s [Suspensions SOLVED]

Facebook Marketplace Bans, Account Reviews, & Tricks to Input Tracking #s [Suspensions SOLVED]

wow what a week it's honestly been on
facebook i know
i was obviously banned for the second
time this week i know literally probably
thousands if not tens of thousands
or more people that sell on facebook
marketplace were banned this week so in
this video specifically we're going to
tok about
all of that and more we're going to tok
about you know the facebook marketplace
bans
the account reviews how to actually
input tracking
i'm going to show you how to input your
tracking even if you're banned right
because
for a lot of you i know other people
have made videos on this in the past and
you know good videos and that's how i
found out about it
and you know there's a lot of these
videos circulating in the facebook
groups
but for those of you that might not have
seen the videos this will really really
help you as well as i think i'm really
going to simplify it so you can get like
the gist of it in like a minute or two
instead of watching like a 20 minute
video like some of these videos are
right so
i'm gonna show you that first here in a
second but uh and then we're gonna tok
about you know why i think that the
bands are happening
what you should also do about it like if
you get banned in the future and you
should put
your input your tracking via your phone
like i'm going to show you in this video
so that you can still get paid
but also you should focus your attention
uh on other marketplaces and drop
shipping on other marketplaces i'm
very very glad that i got banned this
week a i'm up and running this morning
we're also going to tok about that here
in a second
and i'm going to read a bunch of the uh
the posts from the actual facebook
admins from the shipping on marketplace
group
uh so i am up and running again but i'm
very grateful that i got banned because
it honestly let me
focus on other marketplaces and really
opened a lot of other tools namely on
like poshmark mercari
uh and amazon amazon has literally been
ridiculous
uh yesterday alone i think i sold like
1500 bucks
just drop shipping on facebook
marketplace and i literally just started
it like two days
ago so they're not facebook marketplace
excuse me on amazon okay
so i'm all over the place as i was this
week but i'm very very grateful
i i focused you know a lot on facebook
marketplace in the past
and i was like well i want to eventually
get into walmart i want to eventually
get into amazon but like facebook
marketplace is so easy it's the
low-hanging fruit and so
i never really focused any attention on
the other ones well this week i was
forced to
because i literally couldn't do anything
on facebook okay so there's a lot of
potential on a lot of other platforms
it's not just
facebook so let's get into all this
first and foremost
why would you need to input the tracking
numbers why would you need to get back
in your facebook marketplace account
if you're banned well if you sell on
facebook marketplace and you have
pending orders
you're not going to get paid for those
pending orders and they're going to get
canceled
if your account is in review or if you
get banned and in the meantime you can't
input your tracking because you can't
even log into facebook marketplace
so a workaround for that is logging in
via mobile
turning your data off i'm going to show
you how to do that here in a second
literally a screenshot of the video
and that way you can at least input your
tracking numbers so you're not out a lot
of money so
i would have honestly if i not wasn't
able to do this i would have lost about
a grand probably
in profit because i had a bunch of
pending orders
i'm that might be a little bit of a high
estimation or it could be there
like i haven't really specifically
analyzed like what my margins are but i
had a
lot of pending orders and if i wasn't
able to do this i've already paid for
those orders to be shipped to those
people
those people wouldn't return them and
then obviously i'm out the money for
that but then facebook would cancel
those orders because i could never input
the tracking
because i couldn't log back into my
account and so you're probably in a very
very similar position if you're banned
or if you're not banned this is a
valuable video because you're going to
be able to do this in the future so if
you ever get banned or if your account
is ever in review you can do this
so that you are still able to make that
money and get paid okay
so i'll pop the video of me actually
doing this up on the screen i can't do
it now currently on my phone live
because i'm not banned anymore
but i did do this yesterday and record
that part of the video yesterday so
thank god
i woke up to you know this morning to my
account not being in review anymore and
i'm back
live as are you know thousands of other
people it looks like via the group so
we'll tok about that here in a second
but basically all you want to do is
you'll see the video up on the screen
i'm literally logging into facebook so
i'm going into facebook i'm turning my
wi-fi
and my data off and then i'm going to
the marketplace little icon
and then selling and then as soon as i
hit marketplace selling i'm immediately
swiping back down
turning the data and the wi-fi back on
okay now i've done this with both the
wi-fi
and the data and i've also turned the
wi-fi and the data off and then swiped
down and just turned the data on
both of them seem to work but you do
have to time it properly
you do have to time it right and full
disclosure it took me like the first
time i did it
because i had to do this twice the first
time i did it i think
it took me like almost like 30 times to
actually time it right
the second time it only took me like 10
so you might have to do it a bunch of
times but
really that's how you do it right so you
x out of facebook if you're logged into
facebook right
swipe down turn your data off turn your
wi-fi off
go into the facebook app click the
marketplace icon
click selling really really fast right
before you see like the urine review or
whatever
and then as soon as you click selling
before it even loads you want to
immediately swipe down on your iphone
obviously i'm not sure about android
here
and then turn your data back on really
fast and if you time it right
you will then be able to log in input
your tracking like you're seeing up on
the screen
right now okay so that's how you're able
to input your tracking even if you're
banned that was a lifesaver i would have
been out like i said probably about a
grand in profit
if i wasn't able to do that because i
was banned like this entire week
and a lot of other people were facing
that issue too so that's first and
foremost
really hope that that helps okay now
there are some other things that i want
to tok about i want to tok about why i
think that the bands are happening and
then we're going to tok about some
other platforms
after this that if this happens to you
in the future or if you just want to
diversify because
you don't trust facebook marketplace and
i wouldn't blame you
uh especially after what happened this
week um just you know you want to put
multiple eggs in multiple baskets that
makes total sense okay
so i personally just think that this was
like an ai or an artificial intelligence
like bug in facebook right i don't think
that they were actively targeting drop
shippers
i don't think that it had to do anything
with like the drop shipping extensions
i don't really think it had to do
anything with like your pictures and not
specifically like screenshotting the
pictures and instead using an extension
that takes the picture like i don't
think it had to do
with any of that there's been wide
speculation all week because so many
people were banned about what was
causing this
and everybody jumped to the conclusion
that they were just like kind of like
ebay
in a way like trying to target all the
drop shippers and suspend them all
but there's been a no proof of that to
be the case right it's just widespread
speculation
and b there's actually been a lot of
proof to the contrary that it was just a
facebook bug
and the ai actually was seeing a lot of
different things
and banning people you know without
cause
and banning people based on you know
certain things in its ai right because
we all know that facebook is
run mainly by ai it has a lot of
artificial intelligence and a lot of
software that runs it and not
always people and human beings that are
literally looking at your accounts
and saying like oh this is sketchy like
your band right it's the ai that's
you know something triggered the ai in
your algorithm okay or in the algorithm
okay
and actually i'm gonna pop these up on
the screen right now for you
so all of these are screenshots from the
facebook marketplace
uh the facebook marketplace the shipping
on on facebook marketplace
facebook group which i definitely
recommend that you join it's literally
called
shipping on marketplace i believe let me
figure that out really fast to make sure
it is called shipping on marketplace and
all of these are screenshots from one of
the facebook admins that posted in the
group
so earlier in the week we had the
original post right here where you see
high sellers hope you all been joining
enjoying the spring blah blah
and they tok specifically about bugs in
progress and one of the bugs
specifically is accounts are being
locked
due to specif suspicious activity and
users are being asked to reset their
passwords after logging back in these
users are unable to access marketplace
and the request to use that platform is
under review which is exactly what
happened to me
and exactly what happened to a lot of
other sellers on the marketplace
so it does lead me to believe that this
is not a drop shipping issue
this is not an issue specifically where
like people were doing something wrong
right
it is not against facebook's terms of
service to dropship or anything like
that
yet currently and so it literally just
looks like it was a bug in their in
their algorithm that they then fixed
right because then we jumped to
a little bit later which was uh two days
ago and we
and she posts again and she says a big
issue that has been brought to my
attention is the account locker account
bam blah blah blah so they're still
aware of it
they're still focused on improving it
and then today
i was actually you know i'm actually
able to sell a marketplace again my
account is no longer in review i didn't
get an
email from them letting me know i just
happened to check and it was fine
and i've also seen like in the facebook
groups like a lot of other sellers have
seen the same thing where they're
automatikally unlocked this morning and
everything's fine okay
and i woke up to this post in the group
where it was like hi everyone
thank you for all your posts and
messages on the widespread account bands
over this past week
i know this is extremely frustrating and
we're doing our best to work towards a
resolution
the team found a root cause of the ban
issue earlier today
and put out a resolution that should
have a lot of you back up and running
and then you she goes on to explain if
the the if it's still happening to you
what you should do about it let them
know blah blah blah right
so what does all this mean how does it
affect you should you trust facebook
marketplace in the future how should you
move forward to it uh move forward with
this
in general okay and i know i'm ranting
in this video but like there was a lot
on my
on my plate this with this video there's
a lot of my mind about this because this
has been like a week's culmination
all the way up to this point and a lot
of things have happened it's not just
like one thing it's been like all
over the place so in my opinion i don't
think it was a drop shipping issue i've
said that a million times in this video
i don't think it had anything to do
specifically with anybody doing anything
wrong using an extension
not taking the pictures or or
screenshotting pictures and renaming
them with the metadata
or anything like that i literally just
think and she literally
said it that was just a facebook bug in
the ai okay
so that would lead me to believe that
while you still might potentially get
your account under review or banned in
the future
which the the main risk there is not
being able to input the tracking numbers
so you get paid but i
already solved that for you earlier in
this video and showed you how you can do
that
the main issue there is been removed
right so you can put the tracking
numbers in god forbid you get suspended
again
i don't think that you will it seems
like they fixed the issue and it also
is clear that they're aware of issues
and they're working towards fixing them
and moving forward right they're also
introducing a number of features i just
saw
realist uploaded today i saw the quick
insights
uh uploaded again in my mobile so you
can just renew listings super fast
so there's a lot of of things that
they're doing they're trying to improve
and they're moving in the right
direction so
i commend them for that right like i
can't think of another platform
specifically namely like amazon or ebay
or poshmark mercari or anything
where like sellers can have their voices
heard in a group like that
and the the platform is actively working
with sellers
in the right direction so i commend them
for that i know a lot of people have
been saying in the groups like
i don't trust them this is horrible and
i totally get it i've felt those
emotions earlier in the week as well
myself
because like you're left kind of in the
dark like what's going on why'd they ban
me i don't think i did anything wrong
like i totally get that and so
you it's like the trust in the
marketplace has been severed right
but there's full transparency here on
the facebook group shipping in the
marketplace
they're actively working towards moving
in the right direction and
they're constantly working on fixes it's
not a perfect marketplace yet it's not a
perfect platform
as we all know facebook clearly has
their issues but they
are doing the right things and they're
trying their best to move in the right
direction so i'm fully trusting facebook
marketplace i'm not doing anything like
going back into vacation mode i'm not
you know you know just listing a few
items here and there to like make sure i
don't tik off the algorithm
i'm jumping full back into it i'm
obviously diversifying other platforms
like we're going to tok about here in a
second
but i'm jumping full back into it like
nothing's wrong
and assuming everything's right because
it seems like they fixed everything okay
so i'd love to hear from you let me know
your thoughts if you were banned down in
the comments
what you think caused it or your
experience specifically
but what i would recommend regardless of
if you get banned
in the future if you're currently banned
right now or if you've never been banned
in the past or you don't think it will
ever happen to you
i still recommend you know diversifying
your drop shipping or your reselling
on other platforms i've already covered
in other videos specifically i'll drop
one up in the right hand corner right
now
of other marketplaces that you can also
drop ship from
i wasn't just making that video to make
like a cool video i'm literally telling
you you can drop ship on those platforms
i've seen success on poshmark with this
i've seen success with this on mercari
i've seen success with this on etsy i've
seen success with this on offer up okay
and i've
seen crazy success just the past couple
days
on amazon with this okay so full
disclosure like amazon and walmart
specifically like i toked about in that
video you
are only supposed to wholesale drop ship
you're not supposed to drop ship from
retail suppliers
so i want to hit that home but there are
so many other marketplaces i don't
recommend just putting
all your eggs in the facebook basket
because if you get banned again in the
future
then obviously even if you can input the
tracking all your sales and all your
profit
and you know all your business's revenue
go to a screeching halt so
yes you should focus on facebook i am
putting my trust in it
it's still a great way and it's
extremely prom a great way to make money
it's extremely promising it's widely
profitable and it's ridiculously easy
sales like i haven't seen anything this
easy
in a long time but one thing i
definitely recommend is while i do think
that you should put your trust back in
facebook marketplace and start
dropshipping again even if you're you've
never been banned or whatever
you should also be focusing and
diversifying on other platforms so that
you can get sales from other platforms
you're not solely focused on facebook
marketplace and you might
who knows like maybe one of the other
platforms ends up being like
you know one of the best sellers for you
or hitting there's been a couple
products on other platforms that
have just kept reselling for me
obviously amazon's one of them
but like to give you an example like
mercari there's a couple of items on
mercari that just sell constantly for me
for higher profit margins than they do
on facebook okay
and i know i've heard other people say
in the past like other platforms like
poshmark mercari and stuff like that
like have super low
margins because they charge you a higher
fee i have not seen that to be the case
i've seen the complete
opposite to be the case where i get
higher margins on those platforms
obviously my sales aren't you know up to
facebook marketplace or even close to it
but i am getting high margins there so
when i do sell things
i'm making a ridiculously high profit
margin so i know this video is all over
the place
i wanted to cover a lot of things namely
we cover the tracking issue i really
hope that that helps so if you get
banned you can input your tracking
or if you're banned now do that you can
input your tracking numbers so you don't
have facebook cancel your orders
and you can still get paid we also
covered why i think it's happening as
well as why facebook literally said it's
happening
as well as the fact that they're working
on improving it and we also covered what
you should be doing and why you should
be diversifying your marketplaces that
you're doing this on
you know right now but also obviously in
the future if it happens to you so
i really hope that you like this video
give it a thumbs up you appreciate the
value in it
and i'll see in the next one
