Default PayPal account Locked forever, $5000 still on it

hello everyone, recently i got kicked off ebay and my paypal account was also closed the next day. Anyway im back on ebay selling but there is no way I can use paypal anymore. Is there anyway I can make a new paypal account and continue using it without having ebay or paypal locking it up?? The problem is my old paypal account has all my info, SS numbers, credit cards, drivers license passport and all that stuff. I sell high value goods and everytime there is alot of money coming through paypal, they ask for additional information. Please help me asap, I need to get a new paypal account but im afraid they are going to freeze it also. The 5000 should be available in 180 days, maybe that will help me save up my money and not blow it. anyway please help

Am I right to assume you're in the US? If so, you probably can't get around in getting another PayPal account, since they want your SIN. If you're outside the US, it's pretty easy, since they cannot verify your identity, only your card and bank account (and even there not your name), you can just open a new account in a different name.

basically i only had one paypal account running and all updated with all my info ss number, bank and passports, all that they ever aske for. Now that account got locked up and money will be only available for 180 days. they tell me i can never use paypal again. told me that over the phone. just trying to see if its possible to ever use paypal again with maybe a different name or something like that or maybe there is a way of going around all of that.

How about a business account with a dba...or if that isn't enough a business account with an LLC and FEIN? That will cost you a few hundred bucks to set up, but based on the volume you must be doing would be worth it.

This might be a dumb question, but with the amount you must be running through your business why do you want to use PP at all? Why not get a merchant account or similar that will still enable you to accept CCs?

A merchant account is something you own. With a merchant account you can call the shots. You can also swipe credit cards with a terminal machine like they use at stores.

With bidpay you are under there control.

Basically they both does the same thing, but with a merchant account there is alot more flexibility

Okay guys, 2 questions.

Do all merchant accounts do a credit check? (if so I'm SOL)

What is the best one for someone that is only running $1K-$2K/month
I really want to get away from PP

Yes some merchants do credit checks but some dont care about your credit score.

Word to the wise if the merchant provider don't run a credit check then don't deal with them. It all depends on what your selling, if your selling knockoff goods then a offshore High risk merchant account is better for you, But the way they deposit is a litte diffrent from your normal typical merchant provider that use a domestic bank. Such as wells fargo, bank of america ect.

But the good part about a high risk merchant account is that u can pretty much get away with murder and your funds won't be put on hold just make sure u have good quality items. Now if you sell electronics a regular merchant account with a domestic bank is your best choice because they don't consider your business a High risk and doubt you will have alot of charge backs. You have to tell me what your selling for me to point you in the right direction @ dogface

I followed instruction in this forum and opened a CCNOW account. It sounds so good. It accepts all kinds of credit cards (Bidpay only accepts Visa and Master card), the killing point is CCNOW accepts paypal payment.If you sell on Ebay, it will solve PP problem. I don't mind paying a bit more but if it's good, I will stick with it and let PP kisses my nasty ..a!! good bye
If you guys know any credit card processor accepting Paypal payment, please POST here so people can get a rest with PP ...

HI- I have also opened a CCNOW acct in 1st week of sept. Was able to rack up over $7k in it. BUT.. from what i figure, i will get about 1/3 of it the 16-18th of oct,. then balance in another 2-4 wks, they hold back, 1st 30dys- guess its good if you are not a saver.
Pros- instant merchant acct. ways to save your money, so far- no holds/limits,etc.
Cons-wait for your money, Customers NOT very happy about following the :LINK" they send, then you have to resend it again and again to approx 1/2 of buyers, Also- besides ebay, they only accept valid auction numbers from overstock.com,
SO, I had a nice sale from 1 man- I go to overstock, create a LOT sale, sale goes through, then day later, get suspension letter from Overstock.com-they say high ticket- they want fax of drivers license + fax of utility bill of the registered user. So, currently, have emails from buyers want mdse- cant give valid ebay auction number, cant give valid overstock auction number--so out of luck...(tried a 9999999 number-ccnow kicked it back).

so let me get this straight. If I open a CCnow account, it will let buyers pay me with paypal even though I dont have a paypal account?? meaning their paypal payment will convert and go into my ccnow account??? if that is so than i think i will signup. please clarify. the reason I ask is because my paypal account is limited forever.
