Newegg Account Suspended—What You Need To Know
Having your Newegg account suspended or banned can be frustrating, especially if the reason is not apparent to you. Companies ban accounts for various reasons, such as violating the company’s terms of service either directly or indirectly—but whatever the case, you want to resolve the issue quickly.
If you don’t want to miss the exclusive sales and promotions Newegg offers, learn what may have caused the issues and discover how you can appeal your account suspension.
When you try to log in, you will see a message stating that your account has been suspended or banned—you won’t have access to your account either way.
Online retailers and platforms maintain strict user policies, which many people fail to study in detail—this means that you can violate the rules while performing seemingly normal activities. When your Newegg account gets suspended, you probably want to know the reason. In most cases, all you will get is a general reason, like “an account suspended due to a fraud alert” and nothing more specific than that.
Here are some of the common reasons that may cause your Newegg account to be suspended or banned:
- Using a bot on the Newegg website
- Making several failed login attempts
- Performing activities that trigger fraud alerts
While you may want to maximize your chances of getting the limited high-demand products using an auto refresher, loader, or crawler, it may get you in trouble. Your IP can get permanently banned from Newegg.
According to the retailer, using a bot gives you an unfair advantage to purchasing limited merchandise—it violates their policy to give every buyer a fair chance of getting the items.
Making several login attempts without success results in “time-outs,” which means you have to wait for five minutes before another sign-in attempt. If you get too many time-outs, Newegg will block your IP from additional sign-in attempts.
The Newegg system may interpret certain activities on your account as a fraud alert, which usually results in suspension. This is often done in an attempt to avoid unauthorized access to your account.
Every company has its own rules that every user needs to respect, and the decision to unban your account is up to the company. No matter why your account got banned or suspended, you should attempt to recover it as soon as possible. Here is how to get unbanned from Newegg:
- Request help using the Newegg website
- Contact Newegg via email
- Use the live website chat
- Make a phone call
You can use the Newegg website to appeal a suspended account. All you need to do is visit their Feedback page and provide all the required information in the web form. The necessary information includes:
- Your email address
- Your account number
- Other Newegg accounts (if any)
- Accurate billing details
You should expect to receive a response within one to two workdays.
If you believe that your IP should not have been banned, contact the retailer at email@example.com.
You may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you require urgent help or feel that you got to the suspended page by mistake. The email should include:
- Your IP address
- The error code displayed
If Newegg finds no violations from your IP address in the next 24 hours, the company may unlock it.
If you want to chat with the retailer’s customer support staff, you can use their live website chat by visiting the Help Center page and taking the following steps:
- Enter your name and email address
- Select the product category related to your inquiry
- Select the appropriate contact topic
- Click on Continue and wait for someone to talk to you
You may also call the company at 800-390-1119 and explain your problem.
