    So I'm planning to sell on eBay some items on my site that are returns and pretty much in the "outlet" section of my site to bring more sales in. I have a few questions for the eBay users here at BHW about eBay and things I should look out for.

    1) I have one eBay account (5 years old 99 feedback) that got its paypal limited because I didn't ship out stuff about a year ago (it was two items) can I use the account with a new paypal and change the person name under it? If not I have another account with 1 feedback thats only 6 months old.

    2) is there any programs to use to upload products or manage them?

    Thanks guys! If I missed anything important that I should know please do tell. :)

    1. If the account in your real info, try to work with them to resolve the limited. You will get link and shutdown if you open new pp account and link to that ebay account

    2. I don't know the answer :)

    Good luck

    1. I would just go for a new account. Sells some 'loss leaders' at break even price (some cheap crap) so that you build up your feedback + sales. 99 feedback is not that much, with a good loss leader you can make that up in 1-2 weeks.

    2. Yes, Channel Advisor (I used to work on it for my former company), but its bloody expensive I heard. They then switched to iBay365 or something.. which was much cheaper. Its Chinese but you can probably switch to english.

    3. .. will PM you

    1) Unlink the limited pp acct and link a verified and active acct. You don't need to change your name on ebay. Keep the old acct, you should be able to do/sell more with it.

    2) Turbolister and Selling Manager (both free) should be enough.

    Good luck!
