    Backstory - When I was 14 years old I sold some fake iPhone cases (Lifeproof) on eBay. I WAS FREAKING 14 YEARS OLD! After shipping a few out, these people reported me and PayPal banned me.

    Now, I'm 18 years old. PayPal dominates the internet for sending and receiving money. I would love to be able to sell again through eBay, but you can't do that if you don't have PayPal, can you?

    Is there any tips from people who were able to get their PayPal account back? I called once and they told me no, that I can't have my account back. Should I continue to call everyday until I get my account back?

    I want to sell on eBay again so bad! I made a killing there (with legal products, obviously).

    TL;DR - Lost PayPal account, want to sell on eBay again but need PayPal!

    I THINK you need to sign up for a Paypal business account and use an EIN instead of SSN. Not sure if that's possible but that would be my guess.

    Take the advice provided in the previous comment or purchase what's called a "stealth account" on the Marketplace here on the forum.

    Awesome, thank you :)

    What's an EIN though? Never heard of it. Do you need like an LLC or something?

    I had this problem a little over a year ago and I looked into it for a while and from what I have gathered you can't get it back. You can appeal it but that hardly ever works. Your best chances are just to make a new one.
