    That sort of happened to me, although Ebay was the first to get perm limited. Wait a few days, my PayPal seemed to be unaffected, but the next day it got limited as well.

    If your account is limited and you want to start fresh with eBay and Paypal with new accounts that won't get limited, let me know. I can help.

    focus on verifying your paypal, make everything legit.

    Hey so this happened to me 3 times now. The following are tried and true facts:

    1. If your paypal account is limited for breaking paypal policy, it will not affect your ebay account.
    2. If your paypal account is limited for breaking a paypal rule that is also a rule of eBay, both accounts will be limited/suspended.
    3. Now if your eBay account is limited you should expect your paypal to also become limited. (It just happens that way)
    Hopefully this helps

    I've actually seen it with some friend's where there paypal account was limited and than there ebay account got limited right after 10 days. I just think it varies. Unfortunately paypal does not care about the livelyhood of these sellers
