    To make a long story short, I really got screwed by a supplier, eBay and Paypal would do nothing to help me, and now my paypal account is closed and my good reputation on eBay is totally ********ed up.

    Here is my question....

    I have a new eBay account that was made with a different email address and from a different IP address. It links to a different Paypal account that is linked to a different back account (duh...paypal only allows you to use a bank account on one account). But all the "personal" information on these accounts is the same (name, address, etc).

    Is this going to be an issue? I had the other account for 6 years, so I'm not looking to Kill eBay seller accounts and keep creating fresh ones...I just want a clean start.

    I'm just afraid that there will be an issue where ebay (or paypal) will make the connection and screw me over.

    Do I need to be concerned?

    It all depends on what you did in order to get your other account limited in the first place. You will probably be all right with the same info just change the name. Or just the first part.

    I had an account permanently limited, I opened a new account with the same address and phone number. Used different name, bank account, and cc info. I haven't had any problems yet...knock on wood.

    I was selling digitally received goods in the adult section.

    Btw, my Bay accounts and PP accounts always have the same address, but different names, So I do not have any problems.

    Ok, Hopefully I'll be OK then. I go screwed by a supplier and when I called paypal for help, they said the couldn't help me because of a technicallity and they procedded to limit my account. When I gave them info to have the limitation lifted, they said the limitation could not be appealed and the account would be closed in 90 days.

    THis made refunding the buyers (out of my own pocket since the "supplier" already had the money) nearly impossible since most opended Ebay disputes...which "holds" the funds making it impossible to issue the refund (and with the limitation I couldn't send money on my own) So I was screwed. My perfect feed back on my ebay account is now at 61% after 6 neg feedbacks that no one would retract eventhough I explained the situation and refunded everyone. So the account is dead. I can't sell because of the my feedback rating and I don't even think buying with the account is a great idea at this point....so I got victimized and when I asked for help, got screwed from all directions.....Sorry....didn't mean to unload on this thread...

    Anyway, I hope this will give me a fresh start and I can start building a good rep agian.

    Thanks for answering.

    I feel your pain, i always said this "paypal sucks" You'll be fine with your new paypal account, also your ebay account is not useless yet, you still have more than 50% reputation so you can still use it to sell & build your feedback.

    Gaypal and Egay Sucks they limited all my accounts after receiving payments. I send them the requirements but i received an email that it cannot be appealed. I use alertpay and moneybookers now.

    Giving the supplier to PP is sometimes used to have that info on file so you can't use it again. They won't lift the limitation, they just want to know who you are getting your stuff from so they can ban em. Then no one else can use them.

    I heard that sometimes they don't even check it, just see if you got it.

    But, if you did something suspicious, they will have someone actually read it and see if it's legit.


    Yea, I'm tired of all the b/s. Buyers don't care, any little thing goes wrong, even if it's out of your control. They won't hesitate to neg you, because you can't do to them.

    I rarely get them to withdraw it, most the time they change to neutral.

    I play the back and forth game with Bay about wrongly left feedback from a pissed off buyer. They will always say they can't help. Maybe, after 50 e-mails and making my message sound as automated as possible. Then, I might get the feedback removed.


    That is the unfortunate part. But, there is not much to do but start over.

    It's just a hassle dealing with all the crap, and shenanigans. Every week I'll create a new account, just for insurance. I've come to notice, most people don't really care about the low feedback as long as you have some and it's positive. If they want it they will buy it.



    No point, it's dead. It will take too long for the feedback score to go back up. Most sellers will be suspicious. I don't know if buyer feedback brings up the score, I'm not sure though.


    No one cares, not Bay, not the buyers. Bay wants their money, they don't care how hey get it.

    The buyers just want their item, and won't hesitate to screw you over if something goes wrong.

    It's all good, we are all here to converse and exchange ideas, and tactics. Also, to vent our frustrations and get advice from the other members.


    It's what makes BHW such a gosh darn special place. lol:p:p:p


    Give it a week and build some feedback on your new account. Sales might seem slow, but they will pick up. Just keep doing what you are doing, nothing's changed. You just have a new account.
