Default Which has tougher security, eBay or Paypal?

I'd like to know in you guys' experience which one has been the biggest pain when it comes to getting caught?

So far for me it seems to be eBay, but that's just based off a very limited experience right now. What happened just recently in my first (and latest) attempt to open a stealth account for both eBay and Paypal, my new accounts were actually LINKED to my old ones (not just "abusing eBay") and it was a careless mistake on my part. It looks like the phone number I used for my new eBay/Pal accounts was used at some point as an alternate phone for my old ones and so I didn't remember that it would be considered blacklisted information.

The thing is that eBay caught me on this and banned my eBay account before I even so much as placed a single bid... meanwhile my Paypal account with that same toxic profile info is still up and running and I even use it to make payments on some random crap! Now I'm just trying to slowly use it more and more to see just how much they'll let me get away with. Weird, huh?

you probably say ebay toughest because thats where you can do so many violations, when you say toxic profile on paypal, its actually ebay violations you did and were banned for, so it didnt affect paypal at that point, ebay can go down and paypal left standing, that paypal can be used for non-ebay after that, although will always be more vunerable to limitations.

PayPal because of all the limitations that take work to get passed.. but once you're passed them you'll do fine as long as your eBay account is in good standing.

PayPal for sure.

I wil have to say eBay, at least for my experiences. Even with many links, I have never had one problem using the very same Paypal account. It is as it was the very firtst day I opened it.
On the other hand, eBay seems to set new rules, standards, regulations and now the CALLING business!
I guess I have just had way too much trouble and have spent too much time with eBay.

Its Paypal, because at the end of the day its "money". And thats something what Paypal doesnt want to give to people. They use it to their advantage as well.

I'm curious, have you withdrawn any money from this Paypal account yet?

Paypal for sure. I don't even remember the last time eBay suspended me. It is always my Paypal that gets limited.

Im going to say eBay. An avid seller has blown through way more ebay accounts than Paypal. All of the violations add up quick. Luckily an avid seller was only limited twice in their time.

However, the work needed to remove the limitation was quite hefty and required verbal and image editing skills some do not have. If the seller was limited more often, they would go with paypal no questions.

my vote is paypal because if your paypal gets limited then that means no more money because your ebay is dead

I also would say paypal has tougher security, before I found this forum I mainly got limited for "high risk".
