    I have a legit eBay account. On phone eBay rep told me i can create other accounts. I created another eBay account. They both are linked. Each account has 10 items/$1000 limit. Account A i listed 10 jewelry item and account B i listed 10 cosmetic items. My question is since eBay limit is 10. Will eBay suspend my account? am i suppose to used 5 items in A and 5 items in B to make a total of 10? Thanks:confused:

    You should be able to,if you got suspended it was probably something else as that's what most people including most ebay reps themselves prefer for you to do(you can have up to 8 accounts on one paypal last I remember)

    Well, I did read something about limits the other day and they specifically said..

    You are allowed multiple accounts but they must NOT be used to bypass selling limits.

    I guess if you max out limits on each of your accounts, you looking for trouble.

    I would say your 5 items per account approach is safe. And that is exactly why eBay say you can have multiple accounts i.e. for separating business niches.

    Well, here is a link to show that eBay do in fact allow multiple accounts but specify the purpose should not be to bypass selling restrictions.

    My advice is based on a written statement from eBay (albeit UK, US is probably the same). The logical thing to do is play it safe and not break the rules.

    I wish Smokinfilla was right, and maybe he/she is. It sure would make my life easier. I'd love to tell you to try it out and see what happens but if this is your personal account it would be a shitty start to your venture if you were blocked.

    I would move slowly on the accounts and stay under the radar

    please be careful and always speak to ebay reps by email so you have evidence. as others stated you cannot have multiple accounts to get over ebay rules, so long as you watch out for that you are ok.
