    I have a paypal business account under my own personal name that was linked to my mothers ebay account (same last name). I was able to do business up untill about 2010 then i stopped using both accounts. I would like to get back on ebay but open a NEW account with a variation of my name or open a ebay business account. My question is can i link this to my paypal without any issues or will paypal have a problem with the fact that the paypal was linked to another ebay account in the past? I understand that alot has changed since then and ebay/paypal want all the info to be the same so i dont want to loose my paypal account.

    You should be able to have the same paypal account linked to multiple ebay accounts.

    this would be no problem. but if one account goes down (lets say you get too many complaints or whatever) so will the other one.

    Now could I continue to use my mothers account under my paypal? From what I understand all info has to match between accounts. This account was opened in 2007 and I used it for 3 years with no issues and it has 3000 feedback. Will they shut it down because the first name doesn't match with payals info?

    You can just update the ebay accounts registered info to your name. But it shouldn't matter as when your listing you specify payment email so the actual owner of the paypal account can be anyone.

    Buy a stealth account, upgrade to a business account and you are ready to rock and roll. PM me as I have a lady who makes killer ebay and paypal accounts. She is the best in the business. You need to know what you are doing or you will link. You need access to different ips, user accounts etc or you will link to your old account. I have 10 accounts right now and never link any of them. Dont even need a variation of my own name.
