    Today I was banned from ebay as i was selling digital items repeatedly. I still have my old ebay account which has the same details as the one that was just banned. In order for this account to survive, should i change the ip addresse and use a different paypal account?

    As the paypal account I previously used had a good rapport with ebay and they pretty much sorted me out if i was in any trouble.

    I was thinking that adding an additional email addressee to my already established paypal account could work?

    Any tips/help


    Thanks

    Well you could try that and hope they dont connect the accounts and ban the old one.

    You don't have to change your old account in anyway. Just don't sell digital items on it. I have 2 accounts still active (i use moderation when selling digital items on them and i never get banned) i also use the same pp on them and same ip.

    In the end you'll still be banned. To avoid this do not sell again digital items.

    Avoid calling to request for a higher selling limit at all cost! Someone recently called eBay and had their limits lowered and restricted.

    Also if you goal is to make a quick buck instead of growing your eBay account then go ahead sell the digital copies. But remember, it is more profitable to grow the account than to make a quick buck.

    Why do you take your real accounts for granted? why risk them selling digital items and other less profitable products and unaccepted? I just do not understand it, these real accounts are worth gold mine at the right hands, try to call eBay and get your real account back, you'll not regret this. Call them, they usually open up the account if you can talk them through.

    As everyone above already stated, do not sell digital products anymore, in the end you will get banned. Later on you might want to start a real eBay business and you won't be able to, not to mention your PayPal account is also at risk.
