    I read that ebay does remove software keys from their site, I sold 2 microsoft keys there and I wanted them to lift my limit from 10 to 50 as I had new selling account. I contacted one of staff their and told him that I want them to lift my my limit from 10 to 50, he asked me what I was selling and I told him I am selling the windows 10 keys, he asked where to I get them, I told him I get them from retail. He said to me he will help me to remove the limit from 10 to 100 instead of 50. The guy knew very well I am selling windows 10 keys and he did not told me that, that does not allowed there.


    My question is why did they not banned me, and can I sell more or they will ban me?
    Or how do people sell there and they have more than 1000 sells without ban.

    1. Level 1 eBay reps are often undertrained and do not know eBay policy that well.

    2. In some countries selling microsoft keys may be legal under eBay TOS of that country.

    You got extremely lucky. Please don't think this is normal or that it will happen every time. Next time you call a rep, he/she might ban your account for selling these keys.

    Simply saying "retail" does not mean anything. People make up stories to ebay all day. The reps have heard every excuse/story there is. This guy was very lucky and received a new rep or a rep that didn't care. But there is no magic keyword that allows you to sell this type of good on new accounts.

    Since you said retail that sealed the deal, since most staff don't have time to cross check.
    But it's just a matter of time, bank hard till you can! And don't forget to buy eBay views from fiverr

    Been down this road, i pumped and dumped some ghosted ebay and paypal accounts years ago, server 2012 R2 Edition, made a good 12 grand in about 2 months. I was lucky to get all the money out of them accounts, cause none of them are around today, they all got swatted down

    first rule of ebay seling NEVER CALL, 90% of the time, you will be redirected to Philippines ebay. they all sound exactly the same, and don't really help at all. if you want to have higher limits, max your account out for 2 months either buy quantity or sales, and you should automatically get limits.

    It is not illegal to sell original Microsoft Windows keys. You have just to know how to do it the right way.
