Default how do i use ebay to buy things once paypal has limited my account?

Paypal have limited my account but I'd still like to buy off ebay. I want to make a stealth account but the problem I'm having is the shipping address. Can my shipping address be my actual address or does it have to be somewhere different. Does my shipping address also need to be my actual address also if I'm going to make a stealth paypal account. Many thanks in advance. All advice is appreciated

why don't you use a PO box as your receiving address?

I heard that the address on paypal has to match the address on ebay. If i were to say ship to PO box wouldn't I have to make that my address on paypal? If I did that while making trying to add a bank account wouldn't I have problems trying to confirm the zip code. Because the PO box and my address have different zip codes

Your making this more complicated than it is.....
If you go P.O. Box route (Assuming you got a P.O. Box already):
1. Get a Debit/CC and change it to the P.O. Box address
2. Open the PayPal account and use the P.O address
3. Add the Card to PayPal
4. Open the Ebay Buying account with matching info as your PayPal
5. Shop

Not sure this is great advice for the UK. May lead to complications with credit files. Better option would be to use Entropay.

Wouldn't it be even easier yet to just create a designated buying account?

My understanding has always been that linking only becomes a possibility when you try to sell.

If Entropay is better option then that's even better. I mean the OP can probably still use their home address, I opened a buying account in my name and home address and so far it's been fine.

Yeah I think you're right. I took your advice. I didn't use Post box office. I've opened 2 stealth accounts. So far so good. No problems at all yet.

Just pay with a credit or debit or cash card instead of Paypal account. If you Credit/Debit/Cash card is not linked with your paypal you should be able to buy with it using paypal option to pay with credit cards.

Not for UK.....

Really better to have a new unlinked stealth account.

Agree with GB on this - start fresh and stealth...have access to the address THEN you can also use it to do sales.
