    As I've been doing more research, it seems that there is a difference between restricted accounts and suspended accounts.
    Not sure if I'm right, but suspended accounts mean that your IP, as well as all information (email, address, phone, cc, bank account)
    are blacklisted or basically, if you use the same info again, you'll be suspended again.

    Restricted accounts can still operate to some degree and your IP and other info is not blacklisted (yet).

    But if you have a seller restriction (meaning, you can never sell ever again on this account), then isn't that pretty much still
    as good as a goner and no better than a suspended account?

    Is there anything I can still do with a restricted account to try and get back to selling? I don't think so. So I pretty much have
    to treat it like a suspended account right? But since I'm not actually suspended, when I use a new stealth account, I don't have to
    worry about changing my IP, correct? If I'm not mistaken, that only applies to users who have been suspended. I've only been
    restricted so I would assume my IP is fine?

    There are multiple levels of eBay bans. They can restrict selling privileges but allow you to buy, or just pull your account entirely.

    When you start new account you can not be linked to ANY restricted or suspended account.

    once your account is restricted even it get restore there are always risk of getting 100% suspension of account.
