This is horribly Unfair & Hypocritical.
5 Mile is supposed to be a local Marketplace but seller ads are just used to find what people are interested in so they can be shown National ads from Amazon Wayfair etc for similar products.
The national advertisers pay far far less than we do and dont have restrictions on duplicate or similar ads and can use stock photos. If I use stock photos ads are removed even though I sell new items.
I have people inquire on my items and say they want to buy then I never hear from them again because when they click on the national advertisers that sell inferior product and I never have a chance to explain the difference to them. This also wastes a huge amount of my time.
National and should only be allowed for businesses that don't compete with local sellers. No Amazon or Walmart or Wayfair or Chewy.
This is a huge deviation from your mission & alienates buyers and sellers.
Furthermore, having sellers pay to list ads that become nothing more than clickbait for Amazon is crapping on your customers
