Can you get banned in Shopee?

Yes, you can get “banned” in Shopee, which means you won’t be able to access your account or the Shopee platform.

It is also possible that there will be partial limitations on your account instead of you being banned.

Reason for being banned in Shopee

The general reason for being banned in Shopee is that you violated the Shopee PH Terms of Service.

Of course, you can use common sense to avoid being banned, but you should also review the Shopee terms of service.

The top reasons for being banned in Shopee can be creating fake orders, abuse of vouchers and discounts, scamming other users, and duplicating the exact listing of other sellers.

If you violated the Shopee Terms of Service, your product listing might be deleted, and cases can be filed against you.

In case you aren’t banned, there might be limitations on your account that can prevent you from placing orders or creating product listings.

It is also possible that your ShopeePay balance may be held if your account is tagged by the system for fraud or suspicious activities.
