    I'm waiting this 90 day crap they make you suffer through before you even can do anything on the site.

    Can I just make more accounts (like 3) so that I can increase the amount of money I'm making during this limited period (and also, I want to sell in different catorgories, but apparently they don't like it if you sell completely unrelated products on the same account)?

    Do you have anyone you live with that you could make an account under (with their permission of course)? That would probably work best. My mother has an eBay account, and I do as well. I use hers occasionally. Haven't had any problems.

    I don't think it should be a problem if you are selling legit items.

    You can make more accounts. Read around here as there are some guides posted. New IP , legit address, new bank acct, new phone, new alias and new desktop acct so you don't mix up your cookies. There is also a place dedicated to ebay suspensions and how to get back on. Not sure if I can post that here but google it and you will figure it out. Worked wonders for me and I am back up and running making good money again.

    i would recommend you to create stealth accounts , that way they wont be able to link your ebay accounts so you wont be banned

    You should probably use stealth accounts.. however I have three accounts all with links to each other and no problems so far. They are nearing 10 years old though

    eBay doesn't ban you if you have multiple accounts. However, if they link them, and one account goes down, ALL the accounts will go down.

    The 90 day thing he's talking about is the selling limit ALL new seller accounts have. You are limited to selling 10 items/month. Only after 90 days have passed and you have good feedback do they lift the limit.
    Same goes with items in certain categories. only 5 per month, like video games, etc. Stuff they deem 'high risk'.

    Egay sucks

    I have 2 accounts , one for buying and one for selling so i'm pretty sure you can have more than 1 account.

    You cant get banned for having more than one account. I have about 5 all in my name! I've sold on them for years. I also sell many different things without out a problem. I really dont know why you are getting these restrictions placed on your account...Also all of you accounts count as one in terms of selling limits. So if you make multiple accounts, it wont make a difference.

    Taniya, I dont think you can sell virtual things like "likes" or "followers". Have you ever tried Fiverr ?
