    Hello to all the community,
    I'm moving from the USA to France for 3 years. My Ebay and Paypal accounts are 100% verified with 100% feedback. I maintain my US based bank, bank details and address. Is it possible to continue normally use my paypal account from France? For indeed, my home address will be different between my ebay and my paypal account. Ebay or paypal will ask me additional checks? I do not want to risk suspension.

    Thank you by advance,

    Marc

    i don't think that you'll encounter any problem just because of this, you definitely don't risk suspension, suspension and limitation is two very different things anyway
    on the other hand what if they ask additional utility bills or other proof? they won't, but what if? you'll be able to provide it assuming your staying in France will be legit, so you'll have an address

    but let's just think about the EU (i mean the union) for example, people freely move to one country from another, you can go and live/work basically anywhere inside the EU w/ not too many restrictions, there are people who need to commute between countries frequently because of their job, that's a lot of people, millions of people and a lot from those have paypal accounts and they don't have any problems using paypal whatsoever

    obviously if you need to use ebay in that 3 years staying in France, you change the shipping address and that will be all

    As long as you use the same browser cookies and most importantly - flash cookies, you can move anywhere in the world, having any IP. But as long as you freq. change laptops, PCs, etc. - who don't have your ORIGINAL & GENUINE flash cookies (LSO objects), you risk the account to be flagged and then they to want docs.

    Thank you very much Staunch. What do you exactly mean by "original and genuine flash cookies"?
    It refers to the cookies set by ebay when creating the account?
