Q: I want to send out emails to previous buyers in ebay (I
don’t have a store yet) and when I try to send out the emails after a while I
get a message telling me that I have exceeded the number of emails I can send.
I’ve searched the eBay site but can not find anything that tells me what
that limit is. Can you help? Is there a limit to the number of
emails I can send in a day or a week or a month or even a year?
A: (from Janelle
Elms co-author and eBay University instructor): “The
limit is one per buyer per day, unless the buyers have agreed to be emailed.
eBay does all it can to prevent spamming, so they take this very seriously. You
can send 10 of these per day. Sellers with 0 or negative feedback can send one
per day. If you have an eBay Store, you can legally send out emails to
members on your “opt-in” mailing list. Buyers and sellers will continue to have
direct access to each other’s email addresses. The Contact eBay Member feature
is used when members do not have a transaction in common.”
