    HI, i've got 3 stealth accounts on the go trading in blag headphones but ive realised now after i sell 50 in a day an rake in like £1000 the paypal account becomes limited.

    I never can be bothered to send all the info in to unlimit it, so therefor the ebay linked to the paypal also becomes useless.

    My question is can i get a way with just leaving the fees on the ebay accounts that i will no longer use and just move onto another account to carry on selling?
    My fees are always between £60-£100. What will happen (if anything) if i just swerve paying the fees?

    why not just pay the fees and be done with it? you can pay right back out of paypal. sooner or later they will track you down if you take the money out of paypal.

    if you have not managed to get all the funds out of paypal before they limit you then paypal will just pay the fees over to ebay anyway

    so dodge them as much as you want but if there is anything left in the paypal account ebay has first dibs anyway

    PP isnt a bank mate.

    The newbies trying to scare you are trolls working for pp and ebay.
    No need to pay the fees, it's not like they'll let you sell on that account again.
    Its a stealth accnt so just toss it.

    Maybe I'm an old fart or something but you used their services, which you know cost a set fee. Pay the fee and do the right thing.

    Why are so many people OK with theft here? Everyone is hurt deeply when they are stolen from, so why on earth would anyone have any reaction other than complete disgust for someone who is openly explaining they are stealing?



    (yeah I know it's an old thread, and a moot point for this guy probably, but this makes me mad. What's the world coming to when people are Ok with this kind of thing?)

    you might want to try to do a cancel transaction request with your customers because then you wont have to pay fees with that transaction for every cancel transaction request that you do.
