    Ok so about a year and a half ago my ebay account was suspended indefinitely and my paypal was also. I had sold several dslr cameras for several thousands of dollars, around $8000. I was a newbie and I sold them to buyers out of country and I didn't get tracking services. So in the end they claimed that they never received the items and paypal put a hold on my account and I had a negative balance. I quickly changed my bank account number and cancelled my credit card as well as I did not want to get a charge back for any reason. I was wondering if I can in anyway open a new account on both ebay and paypal and sell again? Would paypal catch on and try to charge my new account with the old balance?

    If you have been using the bank account and credit card without any dispute or report of fraudulent activity then you may be safe.

    Why not get a new bank account and credit card to be on a safer side? I think that sounds better.

    yes,they will catch you sooner or later,they will never take money from your new account for your negative balance on another account,but they will limit your new account til you fix your neg balance on the other account.if that neg balance will not be fixed by yourself then you will be contacted by a fire credit company and sooner or later you will have to pay.(from my own experience :) )

    no, they won't charge your new account, but they will link your new account with your old account, so your new account will be suspended too eventually if you register using the same name/address/CC/bank account
    you'd need to create/buy a stealth account both for paypal and for ebay
    how to do that? already quite a few threads dealing w/ this issue here

    I think not going full stealth in this situation is a mistake. So the OP shipped $1500 cameras without tracking and buyers complained that they didn't received the package? eBay/Paypal is going to think that he's 100% scamming.

    I have a different account number and cc number. Is that all I need? I have opened different ebay accounts to buy stuff but usually after 40-50 stars they close it for some reason. I had always used different names on ebay but the same address. What can I do to start selling again though? Can I do something myself or will I have to get somebody to make stealth accounts for me?

    Well there's your problem. You're making it easy for ebay to link you. If you want to get back to selling on ebay, you need to use completely new information for everything. You can do it yourself, but it's going to take lots of research on how to properly make accounts so you don't continue to lose them.

    Of course they're going to ban you if you keep using the same address because eventually eBay is going to figure out that it's the same person. If you ever want to sell, you're going to have to start with new everything and start by selling stuff not related to photography.

    You would think that the address doesnt matter since people move all the time. What if somebody had moved into that house does that mean that they cant open up an ebay account? So how do I go about paypal? Wont they want my social security number? I.D. number? Any push into the right direction would be appreciated. I would rather try and do it myself.

    Most likely it wasn't the address alone that caused the suspension - there are many other factors. But making a new account with a banned address shortly after you were suspended most likely caused them to look further into your account, and they saw enough similarities to link you.

    Usually people don't set up brand new ebay accounts when they first move in a house, and if they do then they wouldn't have any of the same info as you (did you re-use anything else besides the address?), which is why they wouldn't likely have problems.

    You don't need a SSN to open a Paypal account. If they ask for one, then you're selling items that are too risky, or doing something else suspicious.

    Why not open a FULL Stealth PP account? Using different Address-CC-Bank account and you will be on the safe side for a while...

    Since you want to make your own account, then to avoid detection you'll need a new: name, address, phone, IP address, user account, Paypal account, bank account, credit card (gift card), etc. You can't take any shortcuts if you want the account to last. Good luck with everything.

    The "shortcut" is buying a 2nd hand account (for eB and PP) for XXX amount of money and operating with it using the same Chrome/Firefox profile with the same cookies, and using the same VPS (or private dedicated VPN) used to create the account.

    Ok so I open up the paypal myself. Can I use my bank account and cc (they are both different from the last paypal account i had)? Or should I use my bank account and a prepaid cc? Name and address wouldnt matter, I can just get a p.o. box or any old address? But how do I get around having to use my ssn to sell using paypal?

    use everything brand new. You have to go stealth now. They will link those accounts if they are under the same name and address.

    You wouldn't be able to use your own credit card since it's in your name and address and would fail AVS check. A gift card with no name/address attached, or buying a VCC from someone is needed.

    PO Boxes are good. For best results you want to be able to access the address on file to properly handle returns. You can start off with a random address from a real estate website since you shouldn't have any return issues the first month or so, but after that and you know the account will last, getting a PO box is a good idea.

    Like I said above, you don't need a SSN to use Paypal. Paypal will only ask for a SSN if they suspect something strange going on. You have to be selling shady items, or doing something they really don't like, which causes them to want to verify you more.

    You don't need to change your address on your bank or credit card. Paypal won't be able to know the bank billing address, and using a gift card/VCC is a way around passing credit cards's AVS check.
