    They asked me for receipts or proof of stock like 4-5 years ago. I was selling game codes so I didn't have any. Fast forward last month, they said they would reinstate my account (I can still buy, but can't sell), but I got no email from them.

    I really want to sell on ebay again since there is so much money to be made. But how can I get my account back?

    Don't believe what eBay tells you.

    Do you really want the old account back? Usually an account that has had problems before are flagged and prone to quicker bans in the future. Starting or buying a stealth account and building it up is usually faster and less painful in the long run if done right.

    Thanks for the reply. No, the account doesn't really matter to me. It only had 10 feedback on it. But the problem is when I try to create a new account, it also gets the limit like 1 day after creation. How can I make an account so I don't get caught?

    Then obviously you're either linking yourself to previously banned accounts or you're trying to list a banned or high risk item on eBay.

    EVERYTHING has to be new. Remember, eBay has a log of every login from every account since 1995. You may survive initially by doing a short cut, but you don't want to start ramp up selling and then they ban you because you go through manual review and you get red flagged for something.
