Default Paypal Limited Me - Ebay Account still in Great Condition - HELP

Hi - I have fairly high limit ebay acccount which has my fairly legitimate paypal account attached to it (Correct phone/address/bank info - difference is using my husbands last name instead of my legal one) - I have an EIN uploaded into Paypal and it is a business account.

I started selling a fairly well selling product and had my income triple or more over the last week. I had a good feeling of course they would limit me but I decided to continue on. They did of course do the limitation today and are asking for an insane amount of stuff.

The only issue really is the social security number (because I can't use mine, but I thought I may tell them I just don't have one as not a US citizen??), drivers license, and perhaps the order invoices from suppliers - I'm sure that could be made though.

Anyhow I guess my real question is - what is the best way to go about this - if I hook up a new paypal I purchase here, will they automatically link me even if I use a VPN? What is the best thing to tell them on the phone and is it worth trying to reinstate this account?

I know I am so foolish for putting eggs in one basket etc - please don't bash me with it, I have a new baby who has had a few issues and honestly I couldn't do several different ones at the time and I ALWAYS mess up the VPNS somehow.


Thanks

Here is what they sent me:

As part of PayPal's commitment to providing the best possible experience for buyers and sellers, we perform routine reviews of merchant accounts. In a review of your account, we noticed an increase in your payment volume.
*
To give us time to work together on this, we've temporarily limited what you can do with your account until our review is completed. We want to work with you to get your account back to normal as quickly as possible. To complete our review and better understand your business, we need your assistance in collecting the following information:
*
Provide an explanation of the recent increase in volume processed within your PayPal account and your expected monthly volume going forward.*
**
*
Provide the last six months' bank statements for the bank account ending in XX.
*
The statement you provide must show your name, address, and account number exactly as they appear on your PayPal account.
*
Provide a driver's license or any other government-issued photo identification. The photo ID must show your full name and current address.
A copy of a recent utility bill, bank statement, or credit card statement showing your name and address exactly as they appear on your PayPal account.
A copy of your social security card. If you do not have access to this document, you can go to your local Social Security Office and request a letter which will verify your Social Security Number. The Social Security Office will need to stamp, date, and sign the letter for authentication purposes. We will also accept a current paystub, IRS statement, past year's W-2, or past year's tax filing or return. These documents need to show your full Social Security Number.
*
Protecting your personal information is important to us. Click "Privacy" at the bottom of any PayPal page for details on how we protect your information.
*
Upload or fax a copy of any invoices, receipts, or bills of sale referencing your purchase or acquisition of the merchandise involved in the following transactions:
*
An invoice is an original bill of sale referencing where you acquired the items you're selling, and the name and phone number of your supplier.*
*
Upload or fax your supplier's contact information.

sucks that they asked for a social. that really is the only thing that will prevent restoring the account and my only leitimate fear when operating with paypal. did you go from 1k in sales to 3k. or 10 to 30k? i lost a paypal for selling 11k from 1k the first month, live and learn, always have to have more backups, in your case you could still sell if you have backups.

i would upload all docs and then call in and if a guy answers hang up and call back til you get a woman, have had far better luck with lifting limitations, i would ask for them to overlook the social security and give them an excuse like you said, not much else you can do.

You can't just attach another PP. They'll limit it too.

There are different degrees of limits, the most common is they won't allow money in, but they will allow transfers out. If so get your money out now.

Otherwise you're going to be waiting 180 days and still have to provide the SSN.

If you are a foreign national they will usually accept a TIN instead of an SSN. You have to apply for that and it takes a little while, unlike an EIN which you can get instantly. They'll probably take any one of the three even though they said SSN.

Their concern is that you pay your taxes.

Also if anyone has a verified paypal with deposits having been withdrawn before so it's not so new (Idk if folks do that with them ever before selling) PLEASE inbox me and I'd like to buy today.

Thanks

I'm glad you have the Amazon Ghost. Amazon is such a great yet tough platform.

For your eBay, I recommend the eBay Stealth for sure.

If you are now able to make that much of an income, now it's all about operating good stealth accounts and the stealth guide and this forum can definitely help you for sure.

Here's a good solution for you right now while you figure out that account that was soft limited...

See the first link in my signature? You can get a set of high limit accounts for eBay and PP to start selling again.

https://www.stealthaccts.com/accounts

But do follow the guidelines in the stealth guide and ask questions in the forum on how to operate them safely so you don't get limited like this.
