    Hi all, well, apparently I am registered as a business account on ebay already. I have reached my selling limit of 140 items a month in like 1 week... selling cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin if you guys didn't know it already. I was just wondering what is the best way of going about to have this limit increased? I was contemplating on phoning them up to have this restriction lifted. But I am slightly worried that if I did that, they might ban my account for selling these digital goods despite me having 100% positive feedback and some of them even want to buy more outside ebay as I couldn't list anymore.

    So should I

    a) Phone them up to have this limit removed - I have 791+ feedback and have been a registered member since 2002

    b) Make a new stealth account - seems quite complicated

    Any ideas what the selling limit for a new account is as I will exceed that very very quickly I think - looking at 140 items being a "high limit"

    Give them a call, I should think they will increase the limit no problem if you have good selling history.

    It is always good to have 1 or 2 stealth accounts as a backup, just in case one of your accounts gets suspended, then you can still continue selling on ebay.

    My main worry is that I know they said that digtial or virtual goods are not actually allowed to be sold on ebay although I've not had any problems yet. If I were to phone them up and they ask me what I am planning on selling, should I just say my graphics card plus a few unwanted presents ? :p

    What selling limit is my 'next level' or can I request any amount of selling limit ?
