    hello :D

    just a quick question.

    i currently sell on ebay through my verified ebay/paypal account. all legit.

    my sister now wants to set up an ebay account.

    would this cause a problem as we live in the same house i.e have same address and same internet connection? but we have completely different bank accounts etc.

    any advice guys??

    It is not an issue, I have multiple ebay accounts that goto the same paypal account. You can also do separate, don't go overboard and you will be good to go. If you screw either of the 2 accounts up and get it limited then it will also limit the other one.

    You'll run into issues if you are both actually trying to sell stuff. After she sells her first 10 items, she will be limited. If you have an account that sells an item while she is limited, red flags will go off and both accounts will be further limited.
