Dominating categories with listing strategies

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please point me to the Bidorbuy terms and conditions for:

- Listing items on very short auctions (e.g. a one day listing automatically relisting every day)

 

A seller can dominate a category with this strategy and it becomes even worse when all competing sellers start doing the same.

This also includes but is not limited to: repeated multiple relistings with short durations, keyword spamming, spamming categories with multiple items (with the same or similar items), and listing in the wrong categories. Users found abusing the system will be given a warning first, thereafter, if this activity continues, the Seller will be charged an excess Listing Fee of R0.10 per listing on their listings over and above their free listing allowance. The free listing allowance will be calculated as the greater of:
