    Hey all,

    My PayPal was limited a while back which caused me to go delinquent on my eBay fees.

    I recently it got my PayPal sorted out with them after a lot of back and forth which is great news, I have PayPal again! However, my eBay account was suspended for being delinquent on those fees.

    Does anyone know if I can be successful in getting my eBay account back if I call them up and explain that I couldn't pay because I was suspended, but PayPal reinstated my account so I can pay the fees again?

    Thanks .

    You could try, as they're interconnected companies, so to speak.

    I hate how they are rolling the coin the way they want always. I mean, always. You play legal - they limit. You play tricks - they limit. You fart at your home - they limit your account, FFS.
    I hate also the fact that they are the biggest and one of the most used payment gateways, otherwise, I'd piss on their services each time I could have a chance.


    and OP, I think you can contact them and they should get your eBay account back to you. It's nothing illegal you have done, other than been limited by their shitty partner.

    Thanks. the issue is that I have been delinquent on fees which could be problematic. Their original emails said that they would reinstate my account when I paid, but they no longer say that. I think if I call them and explain the situation I should be fine though.

    If the only problem is eBay fees, you don't even need to call. Just pay the fees and the account will automatically reinstate. I did it several times with different accounts, including just last week. I already sold a couple things and there is no hold like a new account. You can verify with a call if you are worried. I have a couple more old accounts to pay ($200, $80). Never understood the big problem with accounts; they never said a word to me despite using one address and similar name.

    The only problem is a glitch when listing. It asks for additional identification verification but it is blank with no links, no information. The eBay worker said there is no reason and no hold on my account so tech support is supposed to fix it. I got around it by using the eBay app to list. I can do everything else on the desktop fine, like ship, feedback, etc.

    Thanks for this info.
    My issue is that it is has been months since it was suspended and the original emails said it would get reinstated and the more recent ones don't. Did you have the same thing?

    Mine was August 2014. Just reinstated last week. Already sold a few things with no problem (except need to use the app to list).

    P.S. You can still log in and look around at your invoice. It will say something like, pay your fees now for reinstatement.
