Ebay Suspension / Suspended Accounts

Please note this guide is a couple years old and has been outdated with time. If  you’re looking for a solid updated guide to setting up a new eBay account after a suspension I recommend you read eBay Stealth – eBay Suspension Guide. It is written by me and kept up to date. Good luck everyone! – Aspkin

Ebay for most people is great for getting rid of unwanted items or to make extra bucks on items lying around the house — but for some people it means finical stability and freedom from the corporate world. There are people out there that depend on eBay for a large part of their business.

Hardcore eBay-ers can do thousands and thousands of dollars a day in sales and the next day have their account suspended and unable to create a new account, I would know I was one of them. Fortunately after tons of trial and error, I’m able to create new accounts even after being suspended and continue with my online businesses.

What happens when eBay suspends your account?

  • You may never use the same credit card number to register a new eBay account.
  • Your email and eBay login trigger cookies with eBay, that list you as a suspended user, and ban any eBay accounts on your network or accounts you have ever logged into.
  • EBay places cookies on your computer with all your information on it. If you try to create, or log into another eBay account. EBay will link the accounts and suspend them also.
  • Your name, address, phone number among many other personal identifying information is logged and used against you with any new accounts you create.

Way’s to get around this and to create a new account safely.

  1. Clean your computer. Delete any software from eBay that might be forwarded information to eBay aka turbo lister. Delete all cookies and logged information from your internet browser.
  2. Change your IP address, keep a log of IP address, and do not use the same one from a previous eBay account. Command prompt > type ipconfig or visit http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation to check your current IP address.
  3. Register a new eBay account with a different email address. Preferability a Yahoo or Gmail account. I have found, if you use your own domain to register an account, example [email protected], eBay will be able to ban your account faster as most likely only you will use this domain and eBay is not dumb.
  4. Register with a pre paid credit card that can be throw away and acquired easily.
  5. Try not to use the same information twice when registering. Example, name and address.
  6. When asked for a bank account and routing number. Change a few numbers with the account number. Just remember choose payments to be made by your credit card.
  7. There are a couple more important factors to know but I do not want to give all the secrets out. Through trial and error you’ll be able to thwart eBay and continue with your business. Just remember never use the same information twice, especially your IP address and always remember to delete your cookies and never log into old banned accounts.

On a side note… the reasons I have been suspended were mostly stupid. My auctions would either be all images; sorry I like them to look nice. Or have a link to one of my websites, which is also bad. These are horrible reason to kill someone’s business. The good thing about it is, every time eBay bans one of my accounts. They lose out on hundreds of dollars in revenue. Why pay after they ban you?

Want to learn how to get back on eBay and stay on? I wrote a complete step by step guide called ‘eBay Stealth‘ that will show you how to safely and easily get back on eBay and PayPal and stay on! If you have been suspended by eBay and you don’t know what to do, then you need to read my guide.

Good luck!

Hi

I read most of the messages here but something is not clear to me.
If you use a different address (so you won’t get suspended again), how would you get the delivery of the items you buy?

Thanks

Hi. I have just had my ebay account suspended and it was a total nightmare with pay pal involved and all. So basically what do i need to do in terms of changing my adress and bank account info, as well as credit card. As you stated it would still be fine if i would just misspell my name on the registration and the adress? and also is there any way to get the ebay account reinstated even if it is linked to paypal suspension ?

Hi there,

A quick question you say Try not to use the same information twice when registering. Example, name and address, is there any way you recommend to get around this and have goods sent from or to the same address without the Ebay Gasapo finding out and linking it to a banned account?

Also is there any way to use the same paypal account?

Regards

J

Hi,

my ebay and pay pal account were both suspended so I used my sister’s account info and ebay suspended me again bc i didnt change my IP address. How can I follow and your steps and still use a bank account that’s mine but won’t be traced back to ebay or paypal? What name, social, and address would I use? Is my only option to keep on trying my family’s bank account information and hope that I won’t get suspended again?
Thanks

Hello,

We were a top power seller titanium status! Our accounts got shot down all of them – over 6000 + actual positive feedbacks. We sell a specific product brand and line. How can we get back on ebay? We had live toll free support and everything. Can ebay shut us down under a new name because we are selling a certain branded product?

Is that illegal?

Please help out! We need it!

Hi, aspkin, I just bought my new prepaid visa card from simon.com and of course, in order to sign up, you must have banking information, if you change your account # around a little, won’t it reject the account? because they might verify it w/ my bank and if it comes back non-valid, won’t that screw me over? should i just open a virtual bank account w/ a new name, new address and new everything?

Right I am on the UK ebay site if it makes any difference. I had 6 accounts suspended, fair enough I’m over it now. I have been using a friends account, recently Paypal have limited this account. Is it possible for me to link up a previous paypal account to this account?

thanks

You can use the same paypal account for more than one ebay account. Do not use a paypal account that was linked to a suspended ebay account though.

If you live in the USA, I suggest using a Simon Gift Account.

Merchant Plus is a great merchant account processor to use away from paypal also.

Hi,
I want to sell some skin care products at Ebay and I want to use PayPal as my payment method. The only thing is, PayPal held some of my money before when I was selling some other stuff. They were asking for tons of my info: ssn, my supplier’s info, etc. I just want to know if you have any knowledge to prevent being suspended in PayPal? Thanks so much for all your help..

Dear Aspkin, PayPal doesn’t accept pre-paid credit cards for premier or business accounts? So, in that case, how can you even possibly begin to create a seller’s account? Also is it really that easy just to change a couple of numbers around on a checking account & routing # and it being accepted by both ebay & PayPal? As far as all the rest of the info I need in order to create a new account, I am already well aware of. I’m just simply puzzled a bit by the whole pre-paid credit card / bank info thing… Your response… Read more »

Helli Ask Pin,

I have been suspended 6 months ago by getting a few late delivery and dispatch scores on my dashboard – it is suspended indefinitely.

Let me get this right, to start again i need:

New email account, new paypal account linked to the new ebay, new billing address, new credit card registered, and new IP address.

If i transfer all of this to my wifes name and register details to her old home address should that be fine?

thanks
