Default Account Suspended for violation of "offers to buy or sell outside of eBay policy"

My account got banned for selling items straight through PayPal. I've called eBay multiple times and the ban is indefinite. How can I continue selling on eBay?

You may not be able to on that account anymore

You may need to look at getting a stealth account

Well.....you broke the rules and they busted you, not much can be done. You need to accept the fact that you can't sell under your details anymore or start to learn stealth and get back to selling as soon as possible. You can keep calling ebay until your fingers bleed, in most cases they don't reinstate the account.

I received a warning about selling outside of ebay, but it is my main account of over a decade.

If you or someone sends you a message via ebay messages.....it's obvious ebay can detect that there is some kind "off-ebay" sale trying to go down and thus they take action, simple as that.

Not sure how tech savvy you are but ebay uses software to do what they do....

You probably got a warning before the suspension happened but you chose to ignore it so now you pay the consequence. Get another account, PIECE OF CAKE!

So, you want to keep doing it? Or even do it more?

Slow learning curve here...
