    Notes: 100% positive feedback. Account since 2003.

    Ok so on Christmas a customer on ebay made a order for something that costed him $100.
    I then went to my manufactures website and placed the order that costs $12. And had it shipped to him. 15 mins later my account is limited with those 2 transactions in quest and there's a huuge list of things I need to confirm.
    Should I just tell PayPal I drop ship? I know they don't like it.

    Or should u lie and say something else. I'm praying to god they don't close my account over this.
    Surely there is somthing I can tell them to where they will just forget about it all and un limit it.
    What should I tell them so they don't close it? Should I have my mom who is a lawyer's secretary write up some threatening letter??

    Thanks guys.

    lol... if your mom is a lawyer shouldn't you know that faking this sort of stuff can get you in serious trouble?

    Give it some time and wait and see if some one else here has a better idea

    Its my legit account. 100%of info is real.
    I just hope they don't say that dreaded phrase "sorry but paypal has determined that you pose to much of a financial risk so we're closing your account"

    Maybe I should call them and say I wont do it again lol

    No need to Write threatening letters,etc.., Call their Customer Care right away and ask them to de-limit your account. They'll ask you to verify your paypal account using bank account or credit card. They may also ask you to provide ID and Address Proof.

    Take a snap of those using your mobile phone and send it to them. Limitation will be lifted in no time.

    *This is all what i did when they limited my account at January this year

    So don't even go through the paypal site or limitation dept? Call the main customer service dept? ?? My bank account is already confirmed. Im 17 so would need a fake id. What if they say I still need to provide the other proof?

    Thanks.

    I don't think drop shipping is the problem. Must be the product.
    You only pay $12 and can sell it for $100?
    Maybe the product name triggered the limitation. Now ebay will follow.

    Paypal must have limited your account because you may not have a business account and you are using it for doing dropshipping business and/or if you are dealing with a product which does not fall under the allowed products by PayPal

    LOL? You have a account from 2003 ROFL and your 17? LOOOL?!

    Nice.


    Anyways, dont call them just yet, if the account is confirmed they will ask for proof.

    I would order like 5 copies from the manufacture and ask them to send all the invoices by emal straight away!

    Then contact paypal and they will ask for that info you have it ready. If they say why is the date not before the order..

    Try to bullshit them, that you had bought some from a offline retailer but you sold everything and just realized you needed to make a new order. Then start talking about your past performance and good feedback etc. (dont go over board tho, its a fine line between pointing it out and looking desperate/guilty).

    If you are using your dad's old account, become your dad. Use his ss# get his driver's license number etc. It's just paypal, it's not the cops or the irs or whatever. I have a close friend that has done this, and she was posing as a man and is a woman. If she can do THAT shit, you can pose as your dad. How cool is your dad? You might be able to talk to him, show him the $ you've been making and explain how paypal does this shit and that you need help.

    If the items you're selling aren't replica or vero, just give them the supplier info of the place you're buying this stuff from, and an invoice from one of the purchases you made from them.

    If it's replica or vero, find a local very small auction house, download some receipt software and make yourself a nice little receipt for some random goods including the ones you're selling, give them that and the auction house info.

    When you get yourself out of this mess, move to another payment processor for ebay, preferably a merchant account.

    @OP

    They will NOT budge on the SS# requirment.IF you tell them you are not comofrtable they will go on to talk about how secure their encryption system is etc.

    If you have had ahistory of complaints on your account DO NOT give them your ss#.They will keep it, and then ban you permenantly(and keep your money).

    If you have had a clean history with PayPal, then there shouldnt be a problem with the information.If your credit is clear, then you are fine.If your credit history is empty, no information will be on it(age,adress,etc)

    For the invoice:
    Open up microsoft word, and download one of their invoice templates(this can also be done in quickbooks).Place a company logo on it, and a semi-belivable price.Print it. Scan it.Open it back up in photoshop and blur it..Crumble it a bit and hten fax it in.

    If possible find somone with a lot of stock of such item and get a watermarked picture(a peice of paper with your email or account name on it).Send that too.

    Above all else, remain calm, cool nice, and respectfull.Most of the time whether you will get unlimited or nto is at the discretion of the person on the phone

    If you give them your ss# make sure the name matches the social security #.

    Awesome thanks for that info. So how would my SS# even benefit them?


    And also I submitted legit invoices for them. So hopefully this will all get sorted out.

    I always used dropshipping with my paypal account. Why don't you buy the item and have it shipped to you . Then post to customers. I also have a business debit account. Bank verifying have nothing to do with the limit. I had a paypal account without a bank account link to my paypal account. I used my "Account Now prepaid card" theres a bank atached to most prepaid accounts. Once Paypal deposit the money just call your prepaid card or look into your account.
    You have to contact customer service and found out why there's a limit. But if I can remember correctly there's a link or procedure within your paypal account that can lift the limitation. First call before you jump the gun. And once you get your account verify apply for a business debit account.Hope this help

    Well fuck ebay and paypal.


    The bitch on the phone closed my account because it was linked to another one. And since im doing a Jv with someone selling gaga tickets I pose a risk to their corrupt company. Mind you I submitted all the REAL documents. and the lady made no mention of me not submitting my SSN.

    Guess its time to go stealth. But I have absolutly NO clue where to start. So im left with a closed account that was 100% feedback made in 2003 and a closed paypal account

    Your info was helped everyone though!
