Default safe to link to existing ebay account to increase limit in this case?

my cousine in germany gives me the permission to link my ebay to hers, she has high selling limit there and is a top rated seller in germany. do you think i should call ebay to let them link my usa new stealth account to hers? any risk? i remember seeing this button in ebay "increase limit by linking your account to an existing account", a bit hesitating only because we are in different country

thanks very much!

ps: her account is real and legit, i also have one account that is real and passed verification - i don't want to risk this one though, thought to link a stealth one first, if successful, then link my real one

im not sure but shes in germany, your in usa, two different parts of the world bringing thier own troubles when mixed, i personally think it not a good idea, even if you phone them they will want you to be the owner of that account and thats not possible as you live in the usa?

Do you not like your cousin very much ?
If not carry on as you could wipe out her account also.
This is not stealth this is silly.
Form your own stealths.
Dont involve family as it will end it tears trust me.
Your option in your mind is a quick way to big selling limits but it doesnt work.
All you are doing is linking a perfectly good legit account to a stealth account.
And you say you dont want to risk using your good account but your happy to risk your cousins ... Thats nice

no-i'm not just being selfish. my cousine is actually my employee, so to say. she sells my product and i provide all the logistics and management, she gets her fair share. she does not have the intention to sell on ebay anymore, as she never did. she's getting a job this year and will close her (my) shop, but i'd hate to loose that trs account and that selling limit, hence the idea to link a stealth to it.

it is under her name, but all else is mine.

yes that is my concern. i mean if all ebay can say is just "no" then it's fine. if they come to scrutinize on me then it's just one of my stealth which i can afford to loose.

i was thinking i can say that is my wife/husband who is in germany - i used to live in germany too. no idea though if this works. is there anybody who has ever clicked on that "link" button before? i'm curious what the next screen would be - input the to be linked account - checking, checking - then sorry you have to call? if i know what kind of information they gonna ask i can ask my cousine to phone them.

Yes wont work internationally and, even in the same country, not worth the risk of affecting a solid old account.

As an aside to this kindness from ebay of linking another 'good standing account' to obtain increased selling limits, I have noticed they do the reverse to them.

Seller has an account that meets the supposed criteria. Links them & ebay has turned around & split limits.

Getting info from ebay on the topic is like tooth extraction.

Keep in mind the chance of limits being lowered (too).

good point. i asked them casually they said only if the accounts have same contact informations, means address, name etc, need to be same. in my case even split would be nice - she has no limit on her account!!
