    First off:

    I'm not sure I had any problems with ebay on my old acct registered to my current email. I may have owed money at one point but they were paid I'm guessing. I can't remember because it was 5 or 6 years ago.

    I received an email from them a few months back saying they were going to cancel my acct for inactivity. It was cancelled. My paypal attached still works perfectly to this day.

    My main question is: is it safe to create a new acct and attach it to my old paypal?

    I'm concerned that they might link it and see I had some payment trouble at one time and not let me sell. But that's a minor concern. I mainly don't want my paypal affected because I use it for run of the mill Internet purchases all of the time.

    I have some stuff to get rid of... but I don't want to be on paypals bad side for a reason I can't remember.

    All feedback on "is it safe" is appreciated.

    Thank you!

    You need to figure out what exactly was your issue with your previous ebay. If you didnt pay your fees at some point and had received a restriction before you paid it off then I wouldnt attach it. Let's put it in other words: if you are not concerned about account being gone/limited at some point of time then you can do what you planned but if you wanna be sure your account will not be affected by this issue then dont attach it.

    Can I?
    I feel like I'm in passive aggressive interrogation when talking to them. They don't seem to care about explanations


    And I don't have a great one. 2010 was a pretty rough period for me. I did some research and I believe this is what happened. I just sold a bunch of items. Never sent them. Never withdrew the money because I just had so much crazy stuff happening.

    Then... paypal just refunded everyone that bought the items with the money from my balance. That's super sketchy on my part but that's the story.

    Thanks all for the responses.
