|slbrooks||I agree, and I think 10k feedback is too high of a standard. Consumers aren't usually dumb (especially those who take the time to search for deals) and can evaluate a seller's approval rating/number of feedbacks to determine what is an acceptable risk to them.|

How about you guys learn about the new eBay standards that rolled out in August, review your policy, and then realize why it is stupid.
Moderators are so smart. Buy deals get promoted FP (where's the TRS badge)?
But deals from APMEX (100,000+ fb, 99.8% positive, official silver/gold dealer of eBay) get remove for not being reputable? LMAO

I just had a post taken down yesterday b/c it didn't meet the 10,000 total feedback ratings which is confusing. The seller was top rated + power seller with a 100% feedback rating.
I find most of the best deals are from the smaller sellers on eBay and Amazon but according to these guidelines, we're only allowed to post from sellers that everyone already knows. Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of using this site since we can just subscribe to those 10-20 stores and receive updates faster than using this site?
Also, slickdeals is just a posting forum whereas eBay and Amazon already have buyer protection policies in place. Feedback on those sites are not mandatory so even if a good seller does thousands of transactions, their feedback qty might not reflect that.
I'm just trying to make sense of this guideline as it appears almost counter-productive and not really offering the BEST deals available to the community. Just my .02

I have a question for clarification.
According to your eBay policies...
To post a deal on eBay, it must have:
Are these rules meaning that one must have all of these criteria or one of those 3 components?
Also, are these rules not in force when something is an eBay Daily Deal?
Because this deal was front-paged and the seller has less than 1,700 Feedback and no "Top-Rated Plus" store rating.

Thanks for asking but no, you may not post your own deals here. That would be self promotion and we do not allow that.

I have read your new policy of deals posting. But something not understand about submit deals with ebay store.
My total ratting of store 7553 also (98.8% positive feedback), Can I post deal of my product?
Also in top rated plus “30 days money back” in that case I can do?
Also please tell me if I do, then what is way to submit?

eBay Policy - Slickdeals now open to Top Rated Plus Listings
We here at Slickdeals are constantly striving to offer the best shopping experience for our community. To that end, many of you may know that our Moderators and Quality Assurance folks vet the authenticity of each deal that gets posted, so you can cut down on clutter and get to the slickest deals.
Old Policy: Major Retailers and Daily Deal Merchants
Specifically, in regards to the eBay marketplace, the unofficial policy has been to only allow deals posted from major corporate or manufacturer marketplace accounts (like Adorama Camera or the Jockey Store) as well as deals on the eBay Daily Deals page. This was due in large part to ensure deals have sufficient inventory levels, feature authentic products, and offer the best customer experience.
As the community begins to find and post valid deals from other reputable merchants outside of that scope, we want to work with you to open up those deals to the rest of our community.
New Policy: Top Rated Plus
Starting today, we want to invite users to post strong deals they see from any eBay merchant that have:
eBay's Top Rated Plus has metric thresholds that are designed to ensure good customer experience. These include a minimum of 14-day money back returns, proven customer service record, and general overall compliance with eBay rules.
Learn More about the Top Rated Plus designation.
Please No Self-Promotion
Please keep in mind that self-promotion rules are still in effect, so business owners, employees, or agencies should please refrain from posting and voting on their own deals. Rather, we encourage you to message a moderator or staff member to learn about other ways of working together with Slickdeals.
We welcome any feedback, comments, and questions below. Thank you!
UPDATE: Please keep in mind that we only allow for Buy It Now listings from eBay, however we don't allow auction listings. While great deals can certainly be had via eBay auction listings, we want to avoid hosting these listings since they are often very limited in inventory, and are more viable to product quality issues.
If we have FPd the merchant in the past through another source we may opt to FP them again even if they don't meet other criteria regarding eBay. We would have considered them a merchant in good standing to FP them the first time
