Default Aged Accounts vs. New Accounts

I'm at all times working with about 7-8 different eBay and PayPal accounts these days. Sometimes they die quick, sometimes they never die (never say never, though).

What I noticed is that "aged" PayPal accounts can take more of a beating, if you can call it like that, than new ones. Obvious, you may say, of course.

An account I opened 4 months ago and let sit about 30 days before I started taking payments, I have been able to withdraw over $30,000 in eBay income, without ever being asked for a single piece of ID, no joke. I'm now considering building this account his own little shrine because its like a god to me (that's a joke). Anyways, another account I've opened and started taking payments after about 5 days, was able to take out about $900 before being limtied, yet another one I started accepting payments just a day after opening it got limited after I withdrew more than $150 over 3 days. It seems to be that the older the accounts, the more you can withdraw.

Is anyone able to confirm this with their own experiences? I have another PayPal account that is a little over 2 months old. So far I have withdrawn over $2000 also without being asked any identification documents or anything else, so there may be a pattern.

What I'm thinking is that those new accounts pop up in the PayPal fraud system fast than the aged accounts. With PayPal having millions of accounts, I can't imagine them reviewing every single account for activity every single time they withdraw money.

There must be some kind of alert system that triggers their monkeys to limit your account. Something like amount of money withdrawn versus age of the account equals risk percentage.

HI- YES, I thought that- it may depend on the reviewer also- I transferred funds from my acct #1 to my acct #2--both mine-diff names, the acct#2- receiving acct was over 5 yrs old, with over 1000 trans history-- they did chargebacks (for my protection)-- they ended up cancelling the receiving acct of 5 yrs old--leaving the 1 yr old acct up-- with only 80 trans history-- go figure...??

Kinda hard to move slow with withdrawals if you have $800 in sales sitting in there and need to send the packages :D I usually withdraw every 2-3 days to be safe. Withdraw every day and you get suspended for sure.

That's true - I see what you are saying - if it were me and I had $800 coming in, I would try to spread it out over a couple accounts, but if you are selling a high ticket item, I would be nervous all the time! Good luck!

Nah, I sell $50-$60 items for a total of $500-$800 per week and account. Usually they last for 2 months, so its good.
