    I know this question is a FAQ from us who got our eB--ay accounts suspended. I know its possible to increase your limit on a new account. For example I have two accounts that have a 5/500 limit. Can anyone help me out? It's really hard to make a living, and a pain to have to be running literally hundreds of accounts to be able to sell a high volume of legal, legit items. Can someone please help me in private?

    How many times have you tried method 1 and how many times has it worked?

    If there is sellers out there, then there is something they are doing in specific. Since they are selling at a regular basis. Personally I don't have the extra money to dump out on an account that can get limited sometime in the future. eB--ays fees are high enough. So if anyone has any real method that has been tried and tested, please help me me.

    I'll be willing to pay for legit information. Thank you.

    I've had zero problems I called in, but the ones I called in were semi-legit accounts where I knew what I told them would show up in public databases. NEVER, EVER call in on full stealth accounts, that is just asking to be banned again.

    1. What makes you think people who sell on a regular basis in a stealth account call in? I personally have 4-5 accounts aging and growing limits at all times. These aged eBay accounts that allow you to get back on eBay if bad things happen don't come by on accident, you know...

    2. If there are magic words you can say that will make everything kumbaya with eBay and stuff, people would abuse it and it would stop working in a short while. eBay may be inefficient at times, but they are not dumb.


    ANY stealth account can get limited in the future. By buying an aged account, you are paying for someone to clear the first hurdle, and if you buy from a legit seller and you have done your homework, it should not go down unless you do something stupid.

    The thing that I am wondering is how they are selling accounts that are under 30 days old, no feedback, no sales on it with 100/5000 limits on it. I have never in my life of making stealths gotten a 100/5000 account. So how come they are doing, and I can't create one myself?

    I am convinced that there is something they are doing it, and just want their guidance that's it. I wouldn't want it to be leaked. Because it would defeat the purpose.

    You realize that some of these people are literally making hundreds of accounts, right? There are things you can do to increase chances of doing it like using a real address where you have access to, but nothing is written in stone. Those 100/5000 are tougher to get to 15000+ limits than 10/1000 accounts anyway, in my experience.

    I know they don't raised the limits as much. I was looking more for a short term solution. I'm just frustrated because I have over 100 items to list, and I keep getting 5/500 accounts.

    one of the most important things you learn making stealth accounts is that there is a right way to do it, and there is the quick way, and almost always, it's not the same thing

    I called in the other day about my account and they told me this:

    If my sales approach more than half of my limit (eg. $2550/5000) then I could call in again and get my limits raised.

    Keep in mind my nearly new account has nearly perfect feedback and customer ratings.

    you can call them tell them your from amazon and developed seller trying out ebay- i lifted my limit the 2nd day to 50k/ 5000 items. but category limit still implies- however i got my own way to take care of category limit which is kind of hard to explain.

    Try calling in like another person suggested. Tell ebay your story and how you require a quick limit increase. Half of the time they will increase it for you. That doesnt mean they will all the time though.

    Category limit - usually browsing the other subcategories with no limits, the qty is limited to 5. So if that's the "magic", then yeah, it works for me as well. After 90 days all is good.

    About the "amazon developed seller" haven't understand that fully. What you mean? Amazon programmer? Seller? There're 2M+ Amzn sellers.

    Sell to your limits every month, and keep your ratings high. You will get increases eventually.
