Default Old eBay account but no selling history. What to do??

Hey guys,

I have been stung by PayPal and had my account limited, i'm sure for a good reason, said reason unknown to myself.

I have access to another eBay and pp account completely separate from mine.

The account is a number of years old which I understand is a good thing and the linked PayPal is fully verified, however there has been no selling activity, ever. It has about 10 feedbacks in the past year.

Question is: what approach should I take when attempting to sell on this account. For new accounts one should of course start very slowly and build it up. I was wondering, due to the fact the account is a few years old is it less risky to start selling larger quantities from the off or is it treated like a new account due to the lack of selling history?

Look forward to your responses. Thanks in advance!

If there is no selling history on the eBay account then its a new account with Re to selling so you still have to take it slowly

Basically you have to treat the account like a new account. You will most likely encounter 21 day holds on the PayPal end also. On older eBay accounts I have found that a month of trouble free selling can get you a good selling limit increase if your limits on the account are low to begin with.

Thanks for your responses, I am certain that the account i'm talking about has been pretty much dormant and I can't recall ever logging in to it on the blacklisted IP.

I wanted to purchase the stealth guide but every link i'm getting to goes to the same place where it's asking for a monthly fee. Am I wrong in assuming that you can buy the guide for around a 30-40 fee for a pdf version? This is the vibe I got from reading other messages on the forum.

In the past there was some trialpay option - not sure if this is still an option however....
