    I've beenselling reps but not on ebay. I have however encountered some customers that have complain about my items being fake even though my products have no brand name on them. I have offered refunds to those customers but I continue to sell my replicas on these message board (with relative sucess)

    Is it possible to get my paypal account limited because I have a few complaints? I am not selling on ebay and in most cases, I've only read about PP being limited due to being vereoed on ebay.

    Please let me know, thanks!

    Pay Pal will limit your account if you get more than 2 complaints..

    PayPal will limit accounts for many reasons, it's very easy to get an account limited.

    You haven't mentioned much information about your PayPal account so it's difficult to give you an accurate answer, even with information no one can give you a conclusive answer.

    How old is your PayPal account? Have you used this account for previous transactions? What country PayPal account is it? Is your account information 100% real? Is your account fully verified?

    Also what do you mean by complaints? Do you mean disputes within PayPal? If so then you're very lucky your account hasn't already been limited, unless of course your PayPal account is old and is fully verified. If a dispute/complaint is made against a new PayPal account, it would be automatically limited until the account holder provides PayPal with personal information and order information.

    If your PayPal account is old, has a lot of transaction history and is fully verified with real information then it's unlikely that PayPal will limit your account over a dispute.

    Thank you.

    The account is my personal fully verified account, has hundreds of transactions, and is about 8 years old. I'm just curious how many disputes it can handle before it gets shut down.

    It's impossible to say, however I doubt a couple of disputes will get your account limited.

    Is being reported on ebay for selling a rep carry the same weight as someone opening a dispute through paypal (when the item is sold outside of ebay)?

    I'm assuming items sold on ebay carry a harsher sentence.
