    You cant change all details.
    Only address and phone .
    Do phone first then wait few weeks then do address .
    But note if your own address allready has allready had a banned account reg there you cant use that address - same for phone number .

    Take your time! Do one thing, then wait a while, then another. That's your best strategy.

    Changing the name is an instant red flag. You don't need to change the name anyway.

    You may not have a problem right after you change it, but you will eventually because of it.

    Contact eBay and say you bought your friends business and want to transfer ownership of the account to him. If they say you can't, ask to speak to CSR in the United States and ask the same question to them. You will be asked to fax something in, and then it will all be legit.

    If you want to be less legit, change the phone number, wait a month and change the address, and then change CC details a month after that. Changing a lot of information too soon will raise some red flags.

    Changing the personal name puts you in a special file.
    FYI... you don't need to change the name.

    Yeah you cannot change all the information on the account. Just make sure you have it where eBay can in fact
    contact you via phone or email.

    This sounds about right. I would not change anything. If I did, it would be one thing at a time. Like the address first, then the phone number months later. But I would never attempt to change the name, unless the account is under a woman's name and you change the last name to make it seem like she got married/divorced.

    Do not change the name on the eBay account. This is going to cause unnecessary red flags.

    do not call ebay to say you bought it, ebay will just close the account. you cannot sell or buy private ebay accounts. if your friend has a company that owns the ebay account you can say you bought the company

    I wouldn't change anything. A change in ip address is enough. Just start selling.
