DIYBMS v4 ebay sellers

noticed this seller on ebay with DIYBMS v4 ,
any idea where the leaf download is or is that their own board design?
edit facepalm , found it uploaded on git 7 month ago …

and the warning says it all !!!
!!! WARNING !!! IMPORTANT !!! READ BEFORE BUY !!!

Due to laws in Ukraine I cannot accept paypal payments and ebay merchant payments. Direct payment or cryptocurrency accepted. Can accept payments via liqpay.ua. You can offer me your payment options

!!! WARNING !!! IMPORTANT !!! READ BEFORE BUY !!!

Don’t buy this if you have no idea what your doing, I will not be able to support you.

I have only permitted the OpenEnergyMonitor shop to re-sell the DIYBMS parts, this is all very clear in the open source terms/ license on the design/product.

I also recommend avoiding anyone who won’t accept genuine payment methods, just has scam and fake written all over it!

File a copyright complaint against the listing with eBay. That may be the only option for persuading them to not list them.

Its my listing on ebay. I just sold modules of a failed project, I ordered them for my own money and the client refused to buy cells. if I violated any of the license terms, please explain which ones. And yes, I cannot accept paypal, you can see it on the website. Ukraine can only send money via PayPal.
Stuart, my personally apologies, if you say I close ebay listing. I really appreciate your work and the world of open source

Hi @inya, thank you for taking the time to post.

The licence terms don’t permit any commercial use of the product - which includes making money/profit from the product by reselling.

If you are simply selling a few left over modules, I don’t have a problem with that, however the sales stats on ebay say that 9 controller boards have already been sold - seems like a high number!

because it is a multiple item listing it will be showing 9 as the total amount of bits sold ,
how ever he did have at least 8 controllers so their might be a good ~500 modules in stock
I know I built 5x controllers and 300 modules myself

I sell just 1 controller and 8 modules, its personal stuff, 6 controllers, 42 cell modules and 11 leaf modules in stock. I don’t plane to make money, just try to return my investition. I personally have 2 working battery and its amazing!
