Default Change Account Type

I currently have a personal account on eBay. Would changing to business make it any different? Or bring more attention to my account?
Also on eBay Canada it asks for a business #? I don't have a #. I know if I put 00000 in it will work, but would that okay?

Too many questions and not enough searching.

Answers: Not necessarily. Attention depends more on how you operate as well. Doubt it - what if they call?

You never add phony numbers to any type of an account.

That's a very silly idea.

Have you forgotten about your Canadian business limits for tax purposes?

What are you doing there

No I haven't forgot about it. I was wondering if that would cause any problems adding a random business # to my account because I can't change without it. I don't have a business #.

Your IP is showing as California USA, strange.

Best option if you really do want to change to a bussiness account is to get yourself a bussiness number.

Using a random companies bussiness number could have tax implications for them so should not be done.

Oh really? That's weird.
And okay I'll get a #. Putting 000000 someone had that #? I already do my taxes but just need to upgrade to business account. I haven't got a limit increase in a year..

Limit increases are, by most accounts, hard to come by in Canada.
