Default Which account?

Which of these accounts is going to be less likely to be limited? Would you say that it's:

A. Sending account - Premier, Verified, Seasoned but doesn't usually receive large payments and has been limited previously but restored fully.
B. Sending account - Premier, Verified, 3 or 4 months old, but no real record of payments received or sent.

If you had the choice of sending money from and to each, which one would you choose as the sending account and which the receiving? All things being equal, the oldest account seems the logical choice, but if you're accustomed only to smaller payments going into that account, would it be a better target for limitation than one that really hasn't been used much at all? Would it be less likely to be limited if it were the sending account rather than receiving?

Good to know. Although it still leaves the question of whether the older account is better off being the sender or the receiver. You're saying the amount of limitations has no bearing at all? It would seem so, but I find that a little rediculous myself. I would have thought that the pristine, though newer, account would be favored over the older, previously limited, account.

On another note, would sending a "money request" from one of the accounts to the other help avoid the suspicion of the paypal computer rather than just simply the "send money" tab by itself? Has anyone found any evidence of this being the case?

It depends on how "limited" you're talking Chris. Are you talking full limitation, having to send in all your documents, etc or just a paypal claim with a buyer/seller that had to be sorted out?

No buyers complaints on 2nd limit. No nothing. They wanted tracking numbers on my items and they did ask for my SS# a 2nd time, but I told them I already gave it to them.

maybe I got a payment from a bad paypal account or something. Who knows


I was still able to receive money to my Paypal account and I was able to refund my customers. I just was not able to withdraw my $$$

Ah. Have no idea then. Have any opinions on the main topic?

Welcome back from the NBC sting by the way.

We all know Paypal isn't the only option, but that wasn't the question.

I'm no Paypal supporter but they do have their place and some people just flat won't buy from you if you don't offer it. Plus, if you're just starting out and trying to up your feedback and offer buy it now, it's important. After you're established, sure you can feed it to the dogs, but until then...

But let's try to keep to the main topic ok?

Alright let's try this example then.

1st account is verified but sending limit has not been lifted yet. Old. Premier.
2nd account fully verified and limit lifted. Older. Premier
3rd account unverified, has been around more than 30 days, w/d limit lifted, personal account.

What types of things really matter here? Does it matter if it's verified or not? Limit lifted or not? Or are the two main factors really just age of the account and the amount of activity/amounts run through the account?

Some other points:

Where will you most likely run into problems sending/receiving money on these accounts, or is it really just a crap shoot and none of them are any safer than another? Will it be more likely in the sending, or in the receiving at these accounts? Is there any one of the three that is almost definately going to be limited if you try to either send or receive? And finally, are you going to be more likely to be limited if you're funding the sending with checking, or with credit card, rather than existing funds in the account? And if so, which?

It's good to be verified and confirmed and even having a business account. Paypal treats these accounts with more leniency then accounts without verification. Having an account for a long time also gives you more trust. People at Paypal really pay attention to your account, especially if you have lots of money going through it.

If you are selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗, maybe you ought to check into Western Union transfers. Someone thinking they are getting a steal might not have a problem paying that way.

I personally would never send payment that method unless I personally could authentiacte the receiver of that payment.

Read a story today about a guy that got busted for selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ Nikes...and was a relatively small-time operation. Not so sure that I want to take on a giant like those guys.

Yep he is a few links about people who got caught. 1 man made $345,000 a year for selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ clothes and shoes and got sentenced to 12 months...

If you are using all ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info, name, address, etc. How could they find you to bust you?
I know at some point there would be a paper trail via you being able to get your funds out.

I am in NO WAY considering trying, just seems like me that there would be someway to stay beneath the radar.

But I guess if you are doing over $300K, you aren't really trying to stay under the radar.
