Default how much is too much?

a cousin of mine has a paypal account in good standing for 3 months, and he uses it here and there to make $200-$300 purchases. hes bought about $5000 worth of stuff over the last month and everything has gone fine. hes even received a payment of $2500 last month and that was fine too. no limitations whatso ever and everything is confirmed and verified including bank and CC info.

he doesnt use it anymore so might give it to me. my question is if i start selling, and lets say i get a payment in of $5000 on 1 single item i want to sell (babe ruth rookie card), will paypal instantly limit my account due to seeing that high dollar amount being paid, or will they just let it thru since that account has been good for 3 months with no problems?

is there a certain amount that paypal sees when they decide to freeze an account until the item clears delivery? like $5000 or $10000? and does it matter if payment is funded with a bank account echeck instead of a credit card (maybe there is more leniency with a bank funded payment than a credit card)?

Most likely they'll let the account wanting to verify your SS#.

If Ive already verified the social on the account, do you think there would be a problem? Everything is fine on the account, but in the 3 months that the account has been active, its only received 1 payment for $2500- would this raise a red flag and force paypal to freeze the account? would they then just wait til the buyer confirms delivery or would they just give me the run around and make me wait 180 days?

Just do it...you wont know if you dont anyways. Paypal is very unpredictable. If they do limit it, its only because they want the tracking number so ship asap provide the tracking number and you shouldnt have any problems. Also request that the buyer sign for the package as proof of confirmation.

thanks for the help guys.

i just was curious to know if there are certain things that trigger red flags (over $5000 transaction or over $10,000 transaction, accounts less than 6 months old, etc.)...

I gotta 2 month old vertified paypal account, took in 8400.00 last month. No promblems yet. If they limit your account man, call paypal everyday and bug them until they lift the limit.
