I did ask ebay on twitter and they actually encouraged me to post on the websites i wanted it to appear. So if ebay has 20 websites, i will post to 20 websites. Awesome haha... Idk if that would spark problems with my website thou....

I would be hesitant to follow advice from Twitter - don't always believe the "media hype"...

That is why eBay are known as twits.

Be wary of what is said in media situations.

If your eBay/Paypal have significantly mismatching information, you need to prepare for the scenario where one or both of the accounts are limited until you're able to explain and prove the identities and reasons to ebay/paypal.

Then do not quote friends. Only state what you have done yourself.

We know for a fact there are certain needs that PayPal & eBay want with account creation.

Do not risk "I think".

With PayPal, you need to know and not guess a single thing.

We know what tricks PayPal make to limit accounts.

This is why we are cautious with advice.
