    Hi guys,

    having read quite a few stories of people getting accounts suspended and money frozen I thought I would see what you guys thought of my situation.

    I had a ebay account about 5 years ago when I was 17/18 and sold a piece of software on it for a few hundred ££. Decided to not pay the big commission to ebay in some act of rebelion and just used my brothers account when I wanted to buy stuff for the past few years.

    However now I want to do some dropshipping and want to open a new ebay account. What I dont want is ebay to connect the dots to my old account...

    ... so does that mean I should get a new bank account with another bank and setup a paypal account with the new card / account? Would this cover my tracks effectively?

    Or should I just bite the bullet and login to my old ebay account and pay the commission then close the account? (hopefully there isnt any % added on for late payment as 5 years of late fees will be a bi*ch lol)

    Advice would be great - I just dont want to start making some decent cash on ebay and then get the plug pulled for a dumb 5 year old £20 commission I didnt pay.

    Cheers people

    Jon!

    add a new email address to your Paypal account and give that email address to your new ebay account.

    You can add multiple emails to your account I guess about 6 at all.

    Ok so its that simple. No way they will get wise or Paypal will give them the info?
