Question international selling allowance

Got 2 new accounts on April both with 100p/5000$, so I started to list auction items on international ebay sites.

Sold out 24 on one account in the past 2 months on international site.

But this month, it starts to pop up the yellow flag every time when I tried to list, says "you can sell 10 items internationally".

Very strange. If so, why I sold out 24 in the past? And what does that mean 10 items/month or what?

Any one else had the same experience before?

You sold 24 of the same item....or 24 different items?

Different 24 items. I sell it as a new user to clear out something I don't want anymore from home.

Limits from one site do not necessarily transition over to other sites - how did you make sure you had 100/5000 limits before?

I have LITERALLY SPENT 1 hour on ebay.co.uk live chat trying to figure this out the other day.

The company I work for has an ebay account with a selling limit of 4800/$52,500 in the U.S.

At first, I was wondering if the listings would be deducted from our domestic selling limit when we list on other ebay sites such us UK and DE.

After 1 hour of being transferred from one rep to another , I finally got it all figured out.

The answer YES, it is deducted from your domestic limits. However, there is something else called Cross Border Limits (CBT), You will have a CBT depending on your account. The basic limit is 10 item per month. In order to be entitled for an increase of removal of this limit ;

1-) your SELLING account must be at least 90 days.
2-) At least 15 positive SELLER feedback
3-) eBay and Paypal must be verified.

we ended up having no CBTs as it is an established account. It still sucks that the listings will be deducted from our domestic limits though.

So in the end it would be better to have separate stealth site-registration accs for US, CA, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, BE, CH-sites, right? In order these issues to be bypassed. If you want to sell French stuff to French guys, register on eB.fr, verify, etc. and start sell there without any CBT blocks.

And not to mention the risk shipping outside of USA.
PayPal doesn't cover you if you were to do that.

And for your account livelihood, it's better to creat accounts that corresponds to the country you would like to sell in if you really want to do international transactions

From this:

Quote:
…if the seller did not reach the site (=FR/DE/ES/IT/etc.) minimum standard of the seller, the seller of the cross-border sales access will be limited. Sellers need to improve my own way of sales and service content, up to standard before the next time the ratings. eB seller account will be on monthly 20 audit, if the account performance has reached the seller service rating requirements, cross-border sales can be automatically lifted.
