Default Does eBay link accounts using the same merchant account?

Ebay just suspended one of my accounts. I have another one created using eBay Stealth. If I try to add my merchant account to this new one, will eBay suspend it?

Welcome sokab. You need to make sure all details match the different ebay account and do not match the old ebay account.

If you use Authorize.net just close your existing account and open a new one. You will then have a new API key and login to add to ebay.

Can you get just a new API key without having to reopen a new merchant account?

The API Key or ID. . . . I actually called Authorize.net and they just issued me a new one after insisting I needed a new one! It would have been the same for another account, hence could they link it?

Another question.... Should I use a checkout cart (like cart manager) or can I just use ebay's checkout for each and every stealth account? The problem being with the later option is that the API ID number would be the same on EVERY stealth account. IDK if thats bad or not.... I'm thinking that a new account with ZERO feedback buyers might not use the cart manager checkout system, but they'd be more inclined to use ebay's checkout system.

The correct way is to age an account with a good number of sales and a good track record using Paypal first, then after 90 days and your selling limits are lifting take it easy by adding your merchants account to ebay and still take Paypal payments also, then after another 90 days of doing this dump Paypal and only use your merchants account. The way you want to use your merchants account is short lived.

User was talking of using a merchant account on a zero feedback ebay account.

Correct & workable suggestion was made by bansheezone to age the account even by using paypal. Then once the ebay account has matured, gone thro' its problems, go with a merchant account.

That would avoid the chances of being suspended & thus waste a merchant account
