    Hi All

    My first time on this site I wonder if anybody can help.

    For over a year, I have been on ebay

    I source my items a tonne of different ways, from drop shipping, to buying when stores have discount sales etc

    Recently I bought some branded headphones overseas - high value - from a legitimate store on holiday. Sadly I made a loss selling these as people did not bid really. Ebay removed the listing after I shipped them because I apparently was not allowed to use the official photo.

    This it seems has led to paypal limiting my account (I cannot think of anything else that would?!?!)

    I received this email requesting:

    - Supplier contact information
    - Business model information:
    Reason for the increase in payments
    Expected monthly payment volume for the next 6 months
    Do you post from inventory or drop ship?
    - Supplier invoices for the items sold
    - Proof of delivery

    I have no idea how to respond to this, I mean I do not use one supplier, and I sometimes use retail stores. I have never sold anything not authentic. I even use amazon sometimes. I do not have invoices.

    I do not have a business model, I am a personal account holder on Paypal, business ebay account.

    The increase in payments is because my dad sent me some money, as did ebay because I bought a high value voucher that never came so I had to chase the ceo for a refund. My sales have barely increased.

    I drop ship and buy randomly so I have no supplier invoices.

    I have proof of delivery for most items.

    My main issues are.

    1. What the hell do I say? I am really worried.

    2. Also, I have about 3k of things I have not sent as yet as I was drop shipping. If they are going to limit my account, I want to refund these people, but I am well aware that I cannot now add money to my paypal so how am I meant to do that?!?!?

    3. My ebay has not been limited, if I use it where will the money go?

    4. I have won an ebay case for something I bought and they said they would refund me but I cannot receive payments.

    5. How long do I have to respond to paypal?

    This is such a mess.

    Somebody please help, I am panicking..

    Why not give Paypal what they are looking for? You act like you're legit but I'm guessing you're not? Paypal put a hold on my account once and I had it resolved in a few hours by just giving them what they asked for. You say you have everything, so what's the problem?

    It's better to have a business account with Paypal if you're using it for business. It doesn't stop you from getting a hold, but it does reduce the chances of it.

    1. What the hell do I say? Give them the information they are looking for. Tell them where you got the stuff from and where the extra money came from. I am sure you have emails from eBay CEO if you really did get money back from them.

    2. Also, I have about 3k of things I have not sent as yet as I was drop shipping. If they are going to limit my account, I want to refund these people, but I am well aware that I cannot now add money to my paypal so how am I meant to do that?!?!? What you need to do is send the items you are planning on dropshipping to them. See #1 to be able to clear this all up.

    3. My ebay has not been limited, if I use it where will the money go? Depends on the methods of payment you accept.

    4. I have won an ebay case for something I bought and they said they would refund me but I cannot receive payments. See #1.

    5. How long do I have to respond to paypal? I am sure PayPal does not care how long you take. I would do it sooner than later though. Get your things together. If you bought them as a drop ship give them the drop shippers information or get your drop shipper to give you a receipt for your order. It is really simple. Just follow their rules and you will have it fixed in no time.
