    Hi,
    I am from outside USA and registered an account on ebay.com for the first time using my old and verified paypal account. I am trying to get the account verified at the time of listing using my google voice number that has been forwarded to a paid US skype number. The numbers are working fine as I can make successful calls to these numbers from outside USA easily. However, I am not getting any call on this number from ebay or any text message either. Is ebay not calling on google voice numbers now. Is there any other number I can get to get it verified. Thanks

    It shouldn't be prob. I used my Google voice number and got everything verified without an issue, but I'm in the US. I take it that your Google voice number is not a US one. If that's the case, just get a US Google voice number (through a proxy, vpn connection) and download the GV phone app to make it even better + easier to take - receive calls from abroad.

    I used a VPN to create the google voice account and get a number. I got a valid google voice US number and it is receiving calls as well. Only problem I am getting is I am not getting the ebay confirmation call on it.

    Oh...that's weird then. Because I got the call from them to my GV number when I registered my new a/c.
