For a long time if somebody contacted my asking for a prices reduction on eBay I’d say "sure". Then I’d give them my price and tell them to send funds to my PayPal address which I attached as a picture. I have done this for over a year and eBay never did anything until about two weeks ago when I sold an item and copied in the item number of the PayPal invoice (to reassure my buyer). That night I got a message from eBay saying that I did an out of eBay deal and not to do it again. Long story cut short I did it again and now my account is restricted for 7 days and I can’t list anything new. It’s not the end of the world but I’m not sure how I’ll occupy myself. Basically I think it was copying the item number in the PayPal address both times that triggered this and does anyone know how to get the restriction lifted sooner?
