Hello everyone, So I had an account a year ago, was selling VERO, bla bla bla, I got banned from ebay. My stupid mistake. Then a few months ago, I created an account through a friend selling completely LEGITIMATE items. Got verified through PayPal, etc. Everything is going smoothly. However, during the Christmas rush, I got a bit behind on shipping, and due to a relatively high number of customer disputes, ebay has now rated the account as "below standard performance". Which means lowered search results, and man it HURTS! Now, I know that you are allowed to have up to 8 ebay accounts, all attached to the same paypal account. So, I would like for my friend to simply open up another account and to start selling under that. However, I have a few questions about that first. 1) Will ebay rate the new account as "below standard performance" as well automatically? I really REALLY would like to have this new account be more of a "clean slate". Can anyone provide insight on this? 2) Perhaps less importantly; on the current account, I have a seller limit of $15K/month. With the new account, will there be a new, separate seller limit? Or will the two accounts have a joint seller limit of $15K/month? Or perhaps something else? **EDIT:** 3) Also, does anyone know if opening up another account raises any red flags with ebay? There have already been some "close calls" and I want to try to avoid ebay's watchful gaze if possible. Thanks for any help!
