    hi guys

    so I have a seller account that isn't linked with the paypal account

    BUT I do receive payments to it.

    Which means in every listing I post, I need to write my paypal account in the paypal box in order for the payment to get to it.

    Is it the same as linking my paypal account to ebay?

    Im asking because about a year ago I was still in my country [ I moved to USA ] and over there my ebay seller account was limited, using that same paypal [ which is still based in my home country]

    But now when I receive payments to that same pp account ebay havnt ban it or anything. Do you think it will ban my ebay if I actually link the paypal account to it ?

    thanks guys

    Sometimes it just takes eBay a whole to catch up with everyone. And they might never limit you, eBay is weird that way. But you should have a contingency plan for if/when the account goes down.

    eBay works in mysterious ways. I'm fairly certain that eBay has two levels of banning, auto generated and human reviewed. It's not that difficult to fool the machines.
