I dont see why not,until you eat too many item not received from Paypal and Ebay.
You can also send them a first class envelope with tracking,in case they file item not received,it would cost you $2.86

The only way I’ve made this work long term is to deliver the digital item instantly but also send out a copy of the code/link through the mail with a tracking number.

I also make this clear in my listings

You are in USA,so use USPS first class mail ,go to your order and print a shipping label with tracking.
are you really in USA?
It is not 100% proof,your buyer can still claim he received something not as described,and you have to send him a shipping label to return the item,which would cost you postage.
so instead of making money,you could lose money

I am selling low cost digital goods with high quantity which has high profit , so shipping Is not an option for me , and I am ok if I lose some of my trans action . Just want to know how long the account will last before getting suspended if I sell such item . At least a month or longer ? And how to avoid getting suspended ?

I am planning on selling game codes and activation codes , has anyone sold these before on the forum and how did you guys maintain your account ? Also do I have to start slowly and increase my selling limit slowly per month basis or can I just increase my selling limit right away as the volume I sell is high and donít know if I can make it there before eBay suspend me . I am new to this please advise , thank you !

You also have to be careful with buyers and chargebacks

Just don’t put all your eggs in one basket. If you need this as your main income source then I wouldn’t rely on digital sales. You will wake up one morning to a limitation and be screwed.

Always have a backup plan
