Exclamation Limited paypal once again, is my ebay account safe?

pretty specific scenario so i am gonna tell the whole story

last year i was in the ebay scene pretty deep, but i got banned and it was too tiring to get back into it so i just gave up.
now i decided to come back, and managed to get a 50 item/month limit

i kind of made the mistake of selling digital goods (sold 30+ items under 24 hours) and my paypal was limited after receiving a few hundred bucks on it

i know it is advised to always start slow, but since ebay dislikes digital goods anyway, i figured i'd just do my usual routine (sell as much as i can in a short time period). even if i started slow, i think ebay would still flag a brand new account selling digital goods, even if its just one or two items a day

anyway my paypal is limited, but nothing happened to my ebay account. i went into my ebay listing details and changed the paypal address, so now my other paypal is receiving the money, and to my surprise, some of the sales didnt have the 21 day hold and i instantly got the money




the weird thing about this, is back a year ago, whenever my paypal got limited, the ebay account was instantly suspended too, but this time its only a limitation.

my question, should i just abandon the ebay account because it may get banned later (its flagged already maybe?) (it has 52$ in fees which im not sure about paying) or should i keep using it

You have to make a calculation on risks.
How much you earn versus the risk of getting suspended of ebay/paypal.

Depends, sometimes the new paypal account can last a month or even longer or it can get banned earlier. $52 is not much so you can probably pay that and earn many times that amount back until you actually get banned. However, don't leave money in the paypal.

Don't link the PayPal to the eBay account. Just use it on the listings to accept payments and pay your fees on time and if possible stay in credit as much as you can.
eBay would still know your other PayPal is suspended (Paypal automatically informs eBay) but they don't seem to care if you're not breaching policy.
Pay your fees using reloadable VCC.
