    Okay So I have a stealth ebay and paypal not under my name (of course lol)

    well about a week ago my stealth ebay account got linked to my REAL ebay account (that is banned), so i got the MC999. I didnt bother to fight it because it was linked to my real ebay acct lol that account was screwed. my Stealth PayPal was linked but didnt not get limited in any way.

    Ive got a invoice of $70 and another incoming invoice of $70 so basically my balance with ebay is $140 in seller fees. my Stealth Paypal had a VCC under it, for about a week I added my real credit card on there to make a purchase. Both of those are removed so as of right now I only have a Green Dot Bank Account added to withdraw my current balance, after that I'm planning to remove my green dot VBA and ditch the paypal account.

    If I have no payment methods on paypal can I avoid paying seller fees? is it in jeopardy because for some time I had a real credit card added?

    They could come after you and leave a ding on your credit, which probably isn't worth the hassle for $140.

    eBay does try to collect their fees using any means necessary. Not sure where you're located, but in the UK your credit rating can get affected if you don't pay them. When you signed up you entered a contract and agreed to pay fees, so if you're breaking it, they have full legal right to try and get the issue resolved. I'd say - just pay the fees. It's not worth f**kin up your credit score.

    Give the $140 out, its the best thing you can do to avoid the future hassles like this. Plus you can continue the account :)

    If you are looking for the long term business then pay the fees, don't have short term view its not a good for your business, think about the growing your business rather than saving just few bucks of fees

    The more people who dont pay their fees the worse it gets for those of us who do pay our fees.

    If you know anything about DB management, a true (ebay's) DB application will not erase the past vital records, esp relating to the CC. At least not for so many years it has been decided. Although you don't see it, the record could still exist in the eBay's DB'es. Your CC details could well be stored as inactive data, and it can be easily and quickly retrieved by eBay as and when required. That record alone can bring their lawyers to your doorsteps, wherever you are, if they wish so.

    If you avoid paying your eBay fees you will lose your account its that cut and dry.

    Yeah you should pay the fees for a number of reasons one you get to keep your account 2 you don't get passed onto a debt collection agency.

    At this point you have nothing to lose, but since you got banned for being linked to another account, your chances are not that good.
