Ebay's new policy of having external links like JotForm

    Have you any solution to Ebay's insistence on not having external links (such as my links from my listings to a jotform for details).

    This is the message Ebay have sent me:

    Contains contact details and/or links to non-eBay websites(45)
    Create listing
    We don't allow listings to include contact details such as email addresses and phone numbers, or links that take buyers outside of eBay. Look in the Type column for guidance on correct listing aspects. Please review our contact details policy and revise these listings.

    I do not include contact details so the only thing it can be is the jotforms I use, do you have a work round solution?

    How about using the form source code or embed codes instead of embedding the form URL? Do they still allow it? I'm not sure if eBay supports this but I think it's worth checking.

    Here's how to get your form source code: http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-Download-a-Source-Code-of-your-Form. You can use the iframe embed code too.

    I'm afraid we do not have any other solution we can offer other than this.
