That is fine to do. You wont have any issues there so long as the account details are not the same

Do you sell on eBay also?

If you do, I recommend 2 separate accounts dedicated to buying and selling

Buying items like you did with your old account will not cause bad linking as long as all your info is new.

SaiJin's idea about separate buying and selling accounts is a great one.

Do you have the eBay Stealth yet?

Just wanna make sure that you know how to create good accounts and not get linked to each other.

Thats fine, especially with an account for buying items, they wont limit you. The only time they'll limit a buying only account is when the buyer is extremely problematic, lots of reports against it, shill bidding etc. in other words you'd have to do something seriously wrong to get removed as a buyer.
