Default Requesting higher limits

I hope this question is okay on this thread.


If you max out your selling limit, there is a message saying your limit is reach.

You can request higher selling limits or wait till the next month to list more.

Is it safe to request it? I keep reading that its best to have little to no contact with ebay, so I didn't know if it would be risky.

Well you have read the advice given, proceed at your own risk. Unfortunately we cannot hold your hand and tell you it's gonna be fine. Some have reported that it works but then some have pushed it too far so it's up to you to call ebay and ask for higher limits.

Be prepared with all account info if you do call.

I don't think it is actually a phone call, I know for sure I don't want to do that. There is a link stating 'request higher selling limits' on the same page that shows I maxed out for my selling this month.

I'm not very good at conveying my questions properly, I apologize. I have been reading a lot since I'm trying to do this right. Calling paypal and ebay, bugging them, I am certain that is a no no.

My question is, since this is something ebay came to me with so to speak, rather than me instigating, would that make a difference?

There are a lot of stealth sellers who have been successfully doing it for quite a while. I was hoping if any of them have done it, without issues, they would weigh in

To give accurate advice, it would be better to say what your current limits are & a vague description of what you sell.
Age of account
Is the paypal fully verified & confirmed?
What feedback do you have so far

It's 50-50 for proceeding to increase your limits & a further reply depends on these replies

Limit is 10/500.00.

I sell just odds and ends, garage sale type items mostly, with occasional coupon stockpile extras. Not the coupons, but the stuff I get with them, mostly HBA.

Account is close to 90 days.

Feedback is between 60 and 70, almost all from buying. FB from selling is very good too.

I'm verified with PP.

Honest reply?

Sell for two more cycles at this rate.

Sell up to your max.

Re-appraise situation then.

Good Luck

Thank you! I will hold off, and resist the temptation. Its hard with a room full of stuff begging to be sold. But patience is a virtue as they say

I will max out the sales $ to the limit or hopefully go slightly over. I have a couple BINS that I have a feeling will not sell, buyer interest just isn't there.

If they don't, I have a couple higher priced items to replace them with to get to my limit Thank you again, this forum (and guide) have been such a blessing!

If Eve AND Adam didn't, I would not be worried about eBay. I would be walking around nekkid and not caring who saw me But since they did, I'm stuck doing what we are all doing lol.

I really wish people would read through the previous posts. This has been asked in form or another at least 5 times over the last few months.

If you request higher selling limits, ebay checks the public record of the name you wrote. If you know the answers, they increase the limit to 100 units, if the name is ⊗⊗⊗⊗, you will keep the 10 unit limit. Hope this helps

I won't be requesting it. In case this account is able to stay open, I don't want to risk screwing it up

No, it is based on feedback $$ sales and quantity sold. Best thing you can do is max out your number of sales and amount sold and get good feedback.

I won't tell you what to do, but I will tell you my golden #1 rule on eBay:

Never contact eBay, for anything.
