Final eBay Suspension / Suspended Account Guide

Read the updated eBay Suspension guide, eBay Stealth. It is written by me and kept up to date. Good luck everyone! – Aspkin

I have posted two eBay suspension guides on how to create a new eBay account after being suspended; both have had great success, so this will be my final guide with all the details, strategies and facts I’ve gained about eBay suspensions.

What happens when you become suspended by eBay? You lose all your auctions; your eBay fees are immediately due; your IP address, credit card number, website URL, email address, physical address, phone number and any other information you have giving eBay will now and always be used to recognize you as a suspended user. If you try to create a new account with any of this information, you will immediately be flagged as a suspended user and the new account you created will be suspended. So your goal in creating a new eBay account is to become someone else, stealth as it were.

There are a few steps to take in order to create a new account. These steps are easy compared to the traps you don’t want to trip to keep your account active. The steps to create a new account must be followed exactly in this order without missing a step. If you miss a step, try to take a short cut, or feel you know a better way, you run the risk of eBay detecting who you are and losing your account. Remember this is the easy part. 

The steps that need to be taken to create a new account after a suspension are in this order:

  1. Delete your browser cookies and saved passwords
  2. Uninstall any 3rd party eBay software i.e. Turbo Lister
  3. Change your IP address
  4. Create a new email address from Gmail or Yahoo
  5. Add that new email to your Paypal account
  6. Create a new eBay account with the Gmail or Yahoo email
  7. Create a seller account with a new Credit Card and Bank Info

Remember you goal is to change every aspect of your account to fool eBay into thinking you’re someone else. Any information that can be tracked back to you will link accounts and trigger a suspension. There are many ways to mess this up. I’ll try to explain the above list in more detail and show you what eBay does to link your accounts together and ultimately suspend you.

1. Delete your browser cookies and saved passwords – – The reason to delete your browser cookies and saved passwords is because eBay leaves cookies on your PC with your eBay username and password and this is used to link you to your account. If you fail to delete cookies and accidentally log into a suspended account using the same IP address for your new account, both of your accounts will be linked together and suspended. Therefore never log into suspended accounts once you’ve created a new account, you’ll run the risk of having your new account suspended.

2. Uninstall any eBay software i.e. Turbo Lister – – The reason to uninstall Turbo Lister is because just like an internet browser, this software will sometimes automatically try to log you in to eBay and link accounts. If you try to use this software after you create a new eBay account and it auto logs you in, any new eBay account you’ve created will be linked and suspended. In order to reinstall Turbo Lister and use it without any problem, you’ll need to install it in a new file directory; doing this will make sure you won’t use any previous databases or information from the previous Turbo Lister. Your CSV files are okay to use.

3. Change your IP address – – Your IP address is the easiest way eBay can track who you are and even where you are located. So changing your IP address before you create a new account should be your primary concern. Changing your IP address is fairly simple depending on how you connect to the internet. I’ve had a ton of questions on how to change IP addresses on my last two eBay Suspension guides so I’ll try to explain this a little better.

Depending on what type of ISP you have there are a few ways to change your IP address. First if you are using dial up, don’t even worry about trying to change your IP address. Every time you connect to the internet your IP address is different.

Cable modems (IPs) stay the same until you reset your modem. To change your IP address, simply unplug the power source for 30-60 seconds and plug it back in. If that doesn’t work try this: Go to Start >> Run >> type in CMD; a black prompt screen will pop up. Type in “ipconfig /release”, without quotes; this will release you current IP address. Once this is done unplug your modem’s power source, wait a couple minutes and plug it back in. This only works if you are directly connected to your modem.

If your modem is connected to a router there’s a little more work involved. You must reset your router to accept the new IP address from the modem. DSL modems are basically the same too. If you’re still unable to reset your IP address, I recommend researching your hardware setup on how to change your IP address or try calling your ISP for help.

4. Create a new email address from Gmail or Yahoo – – Once your eBay account is banned, eBay will log all your information used to create the account as suspended. If you try to create a new account with ANY of the same information you will be linked and banned. This means email address too! Do not use your own domain name for your new eBay account either. I know it helps with advertising… i.e. [email protected] If I were to try to create a new eBay account with [email protected] after [email protected] was suspended, eBay is not dumb and will link my accounts together and I will be suspended. This is not the case with widely known email providers like Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail. So just make sure to use a widely known email provider for your new account and you’ll be okay.

5. Add your new email address to your Paypal account – The reason to add your newly created email address to your Paypal account is because you won’t be able to use the same email address eBay has suspended to send or accept funds from eBay. It has been logged as a suspended user’s email address, and trying to accept funds to your suspended email address will cause your new eBay account to be suspended.

In other words you’ll need to add a second email address to your Paypal account to use with your eBay account. Go to your Paypal account >> Profile >> Email and select to add a new email address. Once this is done, Paypal will send a verification email to that email address for you to verify. Once verified the only thing you have to do on eBay’s end is to add your paypal email address to your auctions and you’re good to go. Do not select to link your eBay and Paypal accounts via ‘eBay Seller Account’; this will cause your account to be suspended. It’s fairly easy, don’t overcomplicate it and you’ll be okay.

*Note: This method won’t work anymore as PayPal has been purchased by eBay. You will need to create a new PayPal account using the same strategies as your eBay Stealth account. If this is confusing read the full eBay Stealth guide for more details.

6. Create a new eBay account with the Gmail or Yahoo email – Once your cookies and saved passwords have been deleted, Turbo Lister uninstalled (you can reinstall in a different folder), your IP address has been changed and you have created a new email address. You are then ready to set up your new eBay account. Quick tip: Since you’re trying to become someone else, and using your old information will have you suspended. Don’t use your same name or street address. If your name is Marcus Miranda. Be sure to change a few letters around. You’re new name would be Mark Miranda. You can actually use any name you want. It’s your choice. Just remember to never use your same name or address. Be sure to keep your city and country the same however. You don’t want to draw unwanted attention from eBay. Trust me on this.

7. Create a seller account with a new Credit Card and Bank Info – If you’re seller, which I’m guessing 90% of the people reading this are, then you’ll want to be able to sell again. This step is tricky and requires a few more steps. For US sellers, you’ll need to verify who you are before eBay gives you the keys to a seller account.

Here are the steps!

Step One! You’re giving the choice to either submit a new credit card or debit card of yours, or establish proof of identity with their ID Verify, which I don’t recommend. So you’ll need to use a credit or debit card that has no ties to eBay in order for you to create a seller account. Fortunately you’re reading this and have my vast knowledge and expertise on your side. You don’t need to use any of your current credit cards if you don’t want to. I found that prepaid credit cards or virtual gift accounts with either Visa or MC logos work the same and are safer to use. There are several sources to obtain prepaid credit cards or virtual gift accounts. I recommend the VCC sellers in our support forum here or you can search Google for prepaid credit card or gift cards, you’ll have a lot of options for you. Any card which has a MC or Visa logo that you have not used before with eBay will work when creating the account.

Step two! Once you obtain a new credit card you’re ready to create your seller account. When entering your credit card details – your personal information should automatically be entered, your name and address. Try to use this information first when submitting your credit card, 90% of the time eBay will accept this information which should be your bogus name and address. Never use your same name or address on any eBay account; be sure you to use your same city and country for IP reasons. Once your credit card has been accepted you’ll need to enter your banking information.

Step three! Unfortunately the only way to create a seller account is to have a bank account and since 90% of the people reading this has had their bank account information black listed by eBay. Meaning if you enter your old bank account information, eBay will link your eBay accounts together and suspend you. The only way around this is to obtain a new bank account or use a virtual bank account, prepaid cards that have attached bank accounts.

Important! Frequently Asked Questions and more information on specific details you’re going to ask me!

  • Do not host your own gallery images. Have either eBay host your images, where you upload your image to eBay or use a 3rd party image hosting website. Example if I host a gallery image from aspkin.com/images and was suspended; eBay will blacklist my domain for GALLERY images, not auction images. Meaning if I try to host a gallery image again from the aspkin.com/images, my eBay account will be linked and suspended. You can however host auction images from any domain including a suspended one without risk. I could successfully use images from aspkin.com in my auctions. Meaning I link directly to the images within an auction description. This has been proven over and over again. Please trust me with this. Read this again if you don’t understand, at least 100+ comments from my previous eBay suspension guides were specific to this. I hope you understand.
  • The way eBay and Paypal currently work is that they do not share the same information. They work separately for the time being. That being said, you can use any name and address for your eBay account(s) without Paypal being a problem. The only thing you must worry about from paypal is your email address. Once your email address is banned from eBay, you can no longer use it to receive or send payments to eBay. Meaning you must add a new email address to your Paypal account and use this for your new eBay account. Trust me on this! *This is not the case anymore.
  • If you’re having trouble changing your IP address, please contact your ISP or research your specific online connection. I can’t possibly help everyone with their specific changing IP address issues.
  • EBay can not grab your IP address unless you actually log into your eBay account.
  • The difference between a prepaid CC and one that you apply for and have credit with is just that. I real credit card gives you credit to use for future purchases, a prepaid card is basically the same but you have to pre pay before you use the card. I recommend using a prepaid card because they’re easier and faster to obtain then a regular credit card. You can use either-or when registering an account, the main difference is the credit card number its self. That’s what eBay really monitors. There are other benefits when using a pre-paid credit card, but I’ll let you figure that one out on your own.
  • The max number of products I have found safe to upload per day is 100, with a max quantity of 3-5 each item. If you spam with thousands of auctions and 99 quantities that’s a red flag and eBay will ban you.
  • When adding a new email address to your Paypal account, you do not have to make it your primary email address. All you need to do is confirm it and you’re good to go.
  • Do not link you Paypal account to your eBay account. Note from Johnny be Free, If you use your new eBay account with your old paypal account you’re fine (for now) unless you link the two together to use the Paypal shipping feature.
  • One time payments are your best bet to pay your eBay balance.
  • Never log into old suspended accounts after creating a new account.
  • Listing Description and Titles. You’ll want to change these around a little bit to make sure they’re not an exact copy of your previous auctions.
  • Here are a couple websites that will describe what an IP address is and how they work. Wikipedia IP address; How stuff works.

Geez, just use a proxy to change your ip address, it’s modern times people. going to a lot of trouble to change an ip is ridiculous. (You can go through this site and they’ll hide your real ip through several of their fake ones). Most companies charge a small monthly fee and they should. they’re providing a great service. I highly recommend, “gotrusted”
However and with that being said, if you’re suspended from ebay, then I’m sure they had a good reason and you’ll probably get back on there just to cause more trouble…Lol

Proxies don’t work. And many people get booted off eBay for simply being linked to a suspended user.

Hi, I have a quick question. My Ebay account just got the 30 day suspension but I need to keep selling. A friend of mine gave me his to use and he lives in another state. What do I need to do to make absolutely sure they do not connect the two? I would in essence be using a completely different persons account with no relationship to me and all sales on that account I will paypal the funds to my paypal account and withdraw. Would you recommend using my phone as a hotspot for a new ip address? Also… Read more »

Hello, my account got suspended, I tried to import my unsold listings on inkfrog to the library but it won’t allow me import them because the ebay account is not active. Is there a way I could retrieve these listings as I do have another account that’s not linked to the suspended account and I’m trying to relist my other items on the other active account.

Here is what I’m told to do,
(1)Clean your PC out.
(2)Apply for a Prepaid CC as example a Green Dot card.(My question here is,Your name is required to apply for a credit card.When applying for a new CC what name do you use?Can you use your suspended real name?)

I’m not understanding what do you do about your suspended information like your first and last names?You say to apply for a new bank account and a pre-paid CC O.K…Well,in order to apply for another bank account or CC requires your real name,address and SSN#.Example,If John Doe was suspended from selling on eBay.John Doe decides to open another seller account.When he is asked for bank and CC information.Won’t eBay link the name on the card or bank account?

So my account got suspend, and my other acocunt’s selling limits ere removed so I couldn’t sell on it anymore, I look back at it, and I can sell again. How come both my accounts didn’t get blocked? Why did only one?

Also, I’m going to make a new account and start over, I’ll change EVERYTHING, but do I have to change my address? I mean, I could be a person renting out the place that I’m staying at?

I feel your pain. We just had a recent boom in sales similar to yours and eBay has linked and indefinitely suspended 4 accounts of ours, and limited sales to $500/month for 90 days on 2 other accounts.

We’ve now changed our IP address with a free program called Spotflux, which changes it each time you login with the program.

It’s disgusting how they can totally annihilate your life at a whim, and the seemingly inhumane disconnection they treat you with when you try to call them to reach a solution.

Good luck, let us know any updates!

Hi, followed the guide after being suspended and everything is working fine so far. Essential to change your IP and browser though as you can be in the middle of listing something on your new account when your browser will try to auto log you in to an old suspended account which you really need to keep an eye on as it can happen totally randomly without you even noticing then before you know it both accounts are linked, new account becomes suspended and you have to start all over again 🙁 Selling limits still bit of a pain as… Read more »

Just wanted to say thank you for guiding me back to making money money after having several accounts suspended. I have one question? After you change your IP address and add another account, which for the most part is working successfully, can multiple accounts be made or will they all be linked to the same new IP address. Therefore, can I make more account or is it to risky?

So you need to clear the cookies, get a new IP, new email address, and new checking account. What I don’t understand is why do you need a pre-paid debit card? You can’t just use the debit card you got for opening the new checking account?

nice info, i followed your instructions step by step, including deleting browser cookies, but then i downloaded the ebook ebay stealth and there they talk about deleting flash cookies, which i did not, the new account has everything different from my old one except for flash cookies, is it going to be suspended?

i created an an eBAY seller account but my monthly listing limit is only 10 items per month, if i want to list more than 10 items it asks me to confirm Ebay identity address with paypal and confirm banking details same as ebay address, but if i confirm paypal address bank it wont match address with ebay, so how can i resolve this other way to increase my monthly item listing ?

pls advise thanks

Has anyone used this method recently? Does it still work? I too was suspended “for the safety of ebay members” was the only reason I was given. I was also a power seller over 800+ and 99.8% feedback. So odd, if the buyers are happy with me why isn’t ebay? Anyways I’m looking for a way back on there if anyone knows a sure fire way please share.

Hey Aspkin, this suspension guide sounds really really helpful. I’m doing everything you listed in the guide, however I’m having trouble getting my IP resetted.

new router/DSL modem connected per USB
clear cache, no cookies

i use (the same) ISP with dynamic IP – should not be a problem

my new account has been banned within one hour after first listing.

question: what i did wrong?

also interesting: they banned 4 old accounts, and 5 that i tried to open after suspention, but one account still works although i use it from the same PC… ?

Hi, I’m very paranoid with my IP address. After I got suspended from eBay I changed my ISP (not because of the suspension but because i was having problems with them). Anyways afer I got suspended my IP with the old ISP was that 192.168.–.— thats seen almost on every PC, and now that I have a new ISP its still the same, however when I got to one of those IP checking websites its totally different. Does eBay see the 192.168.–.– IP and leading me to getting caught again or the IP that those websites see?? Thank You -John.

Klas, which bank was this with? Are you from Oz? I assume you are an Australian registered business so maybe the banks can allow some leeway for address. For personal use, you cannot use a po box as a primary address. They only accept residential address. I’ve contacted most banks over the phone about it. It’s their policy. If the bank chose who to allow and not to allow to have an account judging on what a person is saying, i guess it is their loss. I’ll go somewhere else.

I dont think paypal operates the same way as ebay. Ive had th esame paypal for years now and used it with numerous suspended ebay accounts. I only had a paypal account frozen once a few years ago probably because ebay suspended me and i also had a claim in. Paypal probably does track your ip but they dont seem to inform ebay about it or freeze your account becuase you were suspended by ebay. I could be wrong but i never had a problem. Ive logged on to paypal many times under a suspended ebay IP address.

I got suspended due to being linked to an old suspended account i had from ages ago.I’m back on as a buyer,thats pretty simple like you say,was wondering as the credit card currently logged with them expires in 2 weeks and becomes “non specified” on the site when my updated credit card arrives can i add this to my new account as it has the same numbers?
I know ebay no longer shows your card in your personal information section of the site when it expires so surely they cant link it with the new one,or can they?

About the birthday– Ebay doesn’t check your actual ID unless you decide to go through their “ID Verify” process, which you should NEVER do. You can put whatever birthday you want. The ONLY thing ebay checks is your credit card info, and that can be circumvented easily with a gift card. Just buy a gift card, such as the… Read more »

Hi my ebay account got suspended because my account was linked to an account that was hot. My question is when i do all the steps to create a new ebay account, my question is: How do people make the payments when the auction ends? Do I just put my new paypal e-mail address typed in my add? So let’s say my auction ends and people need to pay me, they have to physically go to http://www.paypal.com and make a manual payment? What about those sites that redirect you? I bought from buyers in the past, where you go to… Read more »

The IP address is all that matters. POSSIBLY the MAC address on your computer (is that what you mean by the LAN address?), but there are ways to spoof this.

Opening an email from EBAY does not leave a cookie on your machine. Cookies are left in BROWSERS and are left by navigating to websites only.

I don’t know much about that book either by Windsor – if you have it, please let us know what you think.

Hi aspkin
Thank you for your article how to open new ebay account,it’s brighten my way. well actually I have opened new ebay account successfully, as a buyer, but I wonder that do I need to change something in my paypal account or not, it’s still ok with old info that I used to tranfer money to ebay seller 2 months before. I use my ebay account as a buyer, your article mostly explained in the seller side, so I just ask if something different.
Thank you.

Hi Aspkin

I have created many ebay accounts in the past all suspended of course, thats before i try the comments in you Final ebay instructions. I want to know do they bann anyone living from the same adress? Like if i have been banned a few times, but try to create an account under my Dads account will they let it go?
Also we you say to change a few letters in the name, do you write the real b-day info? What information do you need to put right in order to pass the id test!

My first account was suspended about six months ago and other than a few email notices – nothing. EBAY is apparently not geared up for the collection process because they don’t even know for sure who you are anyway, especially if it is a business account. Although I went through the hoops and now twice submitted the information they requested for the “appeal process” I am thinking that the REAL reason they ask for that stuff is to positively ID you so they can enter all that info into the system and then make sure that you don’t EVER try… Read more »

To the other poster above: It’s NOT a good idea to get ebay looking at your previously suspended account, particularly if you have a different account active right now. The “minimum length” of your suspension is completely arbitrary. 99.9% of the time, they aren’t going to reinstate your account, EVER. That 0.1% of the time, the suspended user contacted ebay immediately, jumped through all their hoops, and just happened to get the one person out of a million who would actually be sympathetic to their claim. Again, if your account has been suspended, LET IT GO. Dealing with ebay will… Read more »

Mo:

I’ve always paid my fees after my account got suspended, mostly because I was afraid ebay would send a collection agency after me or screw with my credit somehow. Have you experienced anything along these lines from your non-payment of fees? If they don’t actually do anything about it, I’d just as well ignore the invoices too.

As far as nonpayment of fees, that is a separate department from the department that suspends you for “abusing EBAY.” It’s funny, my suspended accounts eventually receive some notice that I had better pay up or I will get suspended! (which proves that one hand at EBAY has no idea what the other is doing) but if I write back at all, I simply write that I will pay when I am reinstated and of course I get no response other than boilerplate. Interestingly, on my latest account they just sent me a request for info – copy driver’s license,… Read more »

It is possible that my first EBAY account was suspended because this potential buyer, a cop, obviously an alcoholic rageaholic type, somehow got upset at me and wrote me some veiled threat about “getting me.” – “you’ll never know where it might come from” He may then have contacted EBAY and pretended to be a cop investigating me for who knows what and thereby gotten the EBAY machine to suspend me. But it is just as likely that EBAY suspended me for no good reason at all. One of their later emails that was not automated used the term “high… Read more »

It’s never a good idea to do anything that will bring attention to an account. One thing that will quickly draw ebay’s scrutiny is logging into the same account from multiple IP addresses, particularly if these addresses are in two geographically distant locations. I would not risk doing what you suggested. As far as living with your friend in the same household, you can have your own accounts, but if one of you gets suspended, the other is likely to get suspended too, especially if both use the same isp.

Brad, I was suspended for the same thing and I wrote to ebay after the mandatory suspension period (I think it was 7 days) and told them that I honestly didn’t know that shill bidding wasn’t allowed and I didn’t even know what it was until they contacted me. I then assured them that I would never, ever do it again and asked them to reinstate me. And I was! I get the impression from Headache Land ie. eBay, that you can get a 2nd chance for most “crimes”.

NOS: Obviously ebay thinks you are a scammer because you listed items in one of their 10 most dangerous categories. You people don’t seem to understand that by doing the same things that got you kicked off to begin with, will just get you kicked off again. Ebay has limited how much you can sell and is now watching your every move. What you sell, what you serch for, who you contact. As soon as the computer connects the dots you will be suspended again.

I got suspended for abuse too. Ebay is getting real smart bottom line. I think something is going on that we don’t know about. I think that ebay doesnt want anymore new sellers. They just what to stick with there power sellers. Everytime I list products I always get suspended for abuse? Is ebay suspending user because they dont trust them? or is it because they broke the rules. Others sellers break the rules and get away.

I did the same thing as you did awhile back. I tried listing an antique KKK item and it was cancelled.

NOS: You have to avoid 3 day auctions if you have a new account. Ebay tried to block you, which sent up a red flag on their computer. Then you listed the same item that was blocked anyway. I guarantee this auction was flagged and looked at by a live person and they saw what you did when you were warned not to, and they suspended you. You HAVE to play by the rules if you want to sell on Ebay.

Because 1 cent auctions cheat ebay out of listing and closing fee’s. The seller makes his money by charging 10 times what he should for shipping. Ebay is going to make this practice of over charging for shipping a dismissable offense, if they haven’t already.
