Default Buying from China and selling on eBay with same account?

I buy a ton of blanks t-shirts from a place in China because they are really cheap yet sufficient quality. Long story short, I use them for the shirts I make and then sell on eBay.

If someone opens a dispute for whatever reason, will PayPal take note that I've recently done transactions with a Chinese user? Would that raise any flags to them? You know, since China gets a bad rep for a lot of stuff.

Am I better off to buy my stuff from China with one PayPal account? And then re-sell the items with another account to receive the money from sales?

Hopefully you know what I mean. Thanks

Keep things clean. Keep things cool. And most of all, KEEP THINGS SEPERATE!

Paypal is no fool when it comes to buying things, especially from china.
They automatically assume branded/coun ter feit goods around 95% of the time from orders coming from china.

Just open a buyers account. Dont screw up a good sellers account with an error like that.

Even if your real info is banned, you can still buy stuff. Paypal has no problem with you spending your hard earned cash, but making it is a whole other animal

ps: sorry for the caps...I am drinking a margarita...kinda tipsy...

Always always ALWAYS better to have everything separate.

Crazy idea to have on one paypal account a record of your transactions. Why?
If it ever came to needing to supply info to paypal you could not. They would already know too much
Much wiser to have different accounts

I made the mistake some time ago of buying and selling on the same account. It was only cheap stuff to build the account. Nothing happened fortunately but I certainly would not do it now

I buy "some technical objects" which have 2 circuit boards, 1 plugged into the 2nd. The 2nd board is bigger and surrounds the 1st, its a weird board that is basically an adapter to make the 1st compatible with servers and is entirely useless to me (can't even seem to sell them).
I unplug the 1st board, remove some model numbers (you brand your merchandise, I unbrand mine) and sell boards these to laptop users (with which they are fully compatible and working after the modifications).

Additionally, the single board shares a model number with the assembly of 2 boards... However one of the modifications I do consists of changing the "firmware" of the board which changes the actual hardware IDs as they show in the system. So I don't sell them based that model number but rather one I have chosen, in fact one from a different product line (though not a different manufacturer of course).

Also additionally, my merchandise is originally branded as 1 company, similar to Dell, and I market entirely to other laptop brands which are somewhat more rare and high end.

I know what you're thinking, it sounds like I'm admitting to being a complete scammer, but the merchandise is NOT fa ked. The HARDWARE is the same at the very base level, so when all's said and done it functions exactly the same as "the real thing". There is actually no way I know of to determine that they were anything other than the real thing.
You can't really fa ke computer parts if they work. But this is somewhat beside my point.

For all these reasons, I think my case is an exception. I buy and sell them on the same ebay account in large quantities.
The type of people who buy my items are EXTREMELY concerned with compatibility and (should) resort to visuals. The items as they are originally listed do not show the 1st circuit board or slot it fits in and do not have any of laptop brands I sell to or any of the compatibility information in the listing.

So, to make this seem like less of a threadjack, what I'm saying is you could always do something else to the T shirts to make it not so obvious that you were reselling the chinese sellers items, such as dying them or cutting long sleeved shirts to make short sleeved ones.
