Default What's the maximum amount that should be on a PayPal account

Title pretty much says it all. But what is the maximum amount you guys recommend to not surpass in order to fly under the radar of PayPal and not get limited when selling on eBay. I don't want money to sit on an account and then login one day and see my PayPal is limited because of it.

You would be limited because of your selling practices not because your PP balance exceeded a certain amount.

I get nervous if my balance exceeds $3k not because a high balance is dangerous, but because 180 days is a long time to wait for $3k+ in the event something bad happens to the PP account. Most on the forum will tell you to not get anywhere near that high - but rather to keep it under/around a few hundred dollars. Comes down to what kind of risk you're willing to tolerate.

So what are considered dangerous selling practices? Just getting a lot of cases open through PayPal? So for I've been selling for the last couple weeks flawlessly.

Yes but not just cases through Paypal. eBay claims, regular chargebacks, your return rate, and your eBay metrics (if you're selling on eBay) are all factors. If you start having a ton of problems with customers (regardless of how those problems come about) you run a high risk of getting limited.

I myself withdraw my funds every time I reach about $600 or over - I pull out anywhere from $400 to $450 at a time. That way some funds are still in there to cover whatever might happen and I don't leave too much in there.
But as phaz0rz the amount in the account would not the a reason for a limitation - your activity and performance will determine that.
