Default Linking an old eBay account to a new PayPal...

I have just purchased an aged eBay account with over 700 feedback however this didn't include a PayPal account.

If I sign up for a new PayPal account will my funds be subject to the 21 day hold?

Thanks.

When you have a new ebay account, ebay is the one that tells paypal to hold the funds. If you have an established ebay account, they no longer tell paypal to hold the funds. Although linking another paypal to an account that already had a previous paypal attached to it may give you issues.

Bad idea.

PayPal will just get limited.

An eBay account without the PayPal account is no use in the UK

If the original PayPal is in good standing then what reason would PayPal have to limit the account?

All the eBay registration info has been changed and account left to stand for around a month.

Entire thing is a bad idea.

Changing all the information on eBay will raise flags.

eBay and PayPal do share data and do limit PayPal accounts that look to be owned by the same person, which is exactly what it will look like by doing what you want to do.

My question is: At any point in it's 700 feedback lifetime, did that eBay account ever have a paypal account attached to it ?

If that account had a paypal attached that is in good standing...then you add another paypal to it, ebay and paypal both throw a flag about it. They will question why a different paypal is attached when the other is in good standing.

Not true...if it is pre-2006 then you never even had to accept Paypal as a payment option. You can use other merchant accounts.

That's true but this account was created in 2007.

I would tread with caution...you may have changed the account info on ebay but all of the old info is still there in the system.

The actual name on the account has remained the same, its only the address that's been changed. To eBay surely this just looks like they have moved address?

Reason being is that aged PayPal accounts are financially linked to an individual. It would be almost impossible to find someone willing to sell there legit PayPal account.

I don't see an issue though operating two PayPal accounts from one eBay though. Surly other people or businesses must do this to spread sales?

You may not see the issue but lots of us are telling you that its not a good idea.

If you want to go ahead and do it anyway despite all the warning then go for it. But it is NOT a good idea.

There is not point trying to justify the reasoning behind why you think its fine, because its not a good thing to do.

Yes I understand, I'm not saying that you are wrong.

Just looking at older posts here on Aspkin and some others seems to have had success with multiple PP accounts. Check out post 9 on this link:

http://www.aspkin.com/forums/ebay-di...y-account.html

Seeming as I have already purchased the account I guess the only thing to do is give it a go!!

Thanks.
1st step is to investigate where is the original PP - speak to your seller. Determine the status before moving on.

Here it is.....another great example of someone asking a question, get multiple answers they don't like, then try to keep trying to rationalize it to themselves......

What you propose doing is bad, period. It's gonna end bad. No one knows how quickly...but you seem hell bent on it.......so good luck!
