Default Is MP setup required for dormant eBay account

I think I know the answer but I still want to ask. I have two eBay accounts that have received the email to update info to start using MP with listings still active until sold. I cannot afford at the moment to pay to create LLCs for separate businesses. I was hoping to list on the accounts inactive to make sales to get my LLCs. But I thought I read on here no more PayPal only MP. Or do you think I can list but will get MP email after listing since I havenít sold on these accounts before? Oh, and eBay wonít let me update existing listings to change them. TIA!

Iím not sure Iím exactly understanding what youre asking, but the last stealth account I had, I was allowed to skip/and list but in order to acquire payments (cash out) you have to update the info.

These days youll be asked to convert over to MP immediately upon listing - I doubt youll be allowed to list anything without doing so first.
Note that youll need use of a valid SSN in order to properly enrol.

So you have to have a valid SSN now? There is no way to circumvent this? thanks

Yes this is correct. My stealth has been dormant for a long time I tried to list this weekend and had to update to MP before it will let the listing go active.
Waiting on the micro depositsÖ
Yes to valid social and birth date as well.

Interesting! I signed up a few days ago... I had to make a listing before I could sign up with MP and enter bank info. It gave me the option to skip SSN until I made a sale. Seems like it's different for different people.

And even that is a different process than what I was seeing a week ago. (which had been the same process for about the last year, for me)

I agree. This account was from 2011 a friend gave it to me maybe a year ago. I had to call to get selling limits lifted to sell as before they asked me what I planned to sell how fast Iíd ship bla bla gave me 5000 to start. So odd.
My DIL was doing her MP info they locked her account she had to call them they asked her a gazillion questions clear down to her last car she drove. Was nuts! So they are def trying to weed out anyone using false or othersí info.
I was just banned a month or two ago using all of this info except the bank account so Iím still thinking they might get me at a later date. Iíll keep you posted.

My account was dormant for about 1 1/2 years. It was also past due in fees, over $5,000+. I paid it, and moved extremely slowly on the account. I know in the beginning process of reviving an old account it is highly susceptible to limitations. If you get one by changing any info, you usually have to call and verify. Very hard to pass because they'll ask the data base questions.

I had like 30k/1 mill+ in limits. When I got my account back I think it was the 5/500. I started with that, and used chat to gradually increase it. I found I could ask more than once per month for an increase. You gotta take it slow no matter the history. At a certain point eBay recognizes you for your old history and all is good.

Yeah, and I noticed something strange. On eBay you used to be able to see in the account details the full account history for sales. It would show xxxx amount in sales, and the amount of items sold for the history of the account. When I paid my fees and got my account back it showed $0 in sales. As if I really never had any history on my account.

About 2 months later at some point it showed my old account numbers. I think when that happened it meant the algos recognized me for my old account history not as some new seller. It just takes time for everything to get processed by eBay.
