    Thinking of purchasing multiple accounts for ebay (maybe have 5 on the go at once). Can i use the same paypal address for each account or will this get me banned?
    Do you have to use a different IP per ac also?

    Thx in advance.

    No, you are allowed to have multiple eBay accounts. This is as long as all of your accounts are in good standing. You can use the same PayPal, with different emails and you do not need to use different IP addresses.

    you just cant bid on your own products, they cant help each other out.

    edit: you dont need to purchase them, just sign up

    Well you can use the same IP but I'll assume that you're selling fake goods. And therefore, if one account gets blocked they all will become blocked due to 2 reasons. First you have linked them all to the same paypal. Second you have probably used the same browser, haven't cleared your cookies and most importantly haven't changed your IP. So therefore there is little value in multiple accounts if you aren't going to keep them all seperate. As soon as you log in with the same IP the accounts are linked forever.

    Plus I know it's not against the TOS to have multiple accounts, but having more than one account for the purpose of avoiding ebay limits is perhaps the fine line that blurs the distinction between being within and breaking the TOS.

    in my experience of 6 years. When 1 goes down, they all go down. Best to have 5 different verified paypal address that way it wont be linked when it gets limited or banned.

    What are you going to be selling? If you're thinking of selling replicas then you definitely do not want them all on the same paypal or IP.

    Gotta be careful about multiple accounts. I have been screwed many times. I don't even want to risk using the same paypal. Just go open bank accounts, credit cards. Be sure to create your accounts with different IPs. If they find out is linked, all your account goes down!!!
