    I was wondering if any of the many experienced ebay stealth people can help me on this. A couple of days ago a mishap occurred and the stealth paypal account I was using got linked to my real paypal account. Both were restricted indefinitely. However, the ebay account under this stealth account is still active, and I have received an email today that i can list even more. So my question is, can I create a new stealth paypal account and use it to receive payments for the ebay stealth account? If so, should it be in the same name as before but maybe with a different address? When items are listed on ebay, there is a form field to have payment go to any paypal account, so I am thinking this is possible. Otherwise why is there a field on each individual item? Can payments go to any paypal account that I have set up? And then of course I will need a paypal account linked in order to keep selling. My ebay selling fees were due yesterday so of course I need a paypal account set up to do this. But can I just create a new paypal account and link it in order to keep selling? And the real question is, can it be in the same name as before? It seems a bad idea to use the same name on paypal as before, but it also seems that if I don't use the same name as the name my ebay account is under it could likely have problems.. Any advice is welcome. I really want to save this account since it just got bumped up from 20 items a month to 60 item listings a month. I just want to be super careful about this so funds dont get seized by paypal once i start listing again... thanks in advance!

    Once an eB acc is linked with a PP acc ("link" = received payments from ANY listings, paying fees from your PP acc, etc., not only manually "linking" them using the button), it's forever. So whenever you use a new PP acc, it should be restricted and linked as well - no matter if you use other address/name or not.

    Also if you have received payments from items on eB in the past, you'll see that in some of 'em people have one name for an eB acc and different name for the PP acc. That might be family member, cousin, new owner or so. So there won't be any problems I think. Yes, it's recommended to have the same name/address everywhere but it is NOT necessary, right.

    Learn the Stealth again, fill up your mistakes, start new accs. Make new multiple accs. eB1/PP1, eB2/PP2, etc. And do NOT link them no matter what.

    Regards.

    Once paypal and ebay accounts are linked, it's usually just a matter of time before both go down, even if one is alive at the moment. It can take months, but at some point the chances are that the eBay will go down also.

    so its pointless to try to send any payments from this ebay account to another paypal account? its a real bummer, i was going to give up this account but when i got the email that i can list even more it made me want to salvage it somehow..
