This seems to go against the grain? Arn't you supposed to show to eBay you are just selling "personal items" and not have them snoop too much into your account?

I mean in a perfect world, yea the obvious excuse when asked the reason why you want to increase the limit would be "Because I plan to buy more inventory to sell and need higher lnmit to list and sell my items. I want to grow my business."

I don't know, Ghost what do you think?

I said I want to grow my business. The questions are pro forma and the rep are usually friendly. Nothing to worry about, as long as your account performance is good, you will get it.

I always act like a new user. My excuse is typically "I'm moving soon and I have a HUGE bookcase full of novels...I'm kind of a bookworm."

I talk about how heavy the books are, and how you "never realize how much you have until you move" etc etc, and how I want to sell them on eBay and make a little extra money.

This way, I have:

- Low risk inventory
- Lots of stuff to sell
- A timetable. I need to sell it NOW, before I move.

This gets a reps sympathy/understanding and results in a quick, hassle free increase.

Of course, books are just an example. You can use just about anything. Except for iPads.

You don't bother with the public records. That's the point.

1. Call them up. Anything a normal account holder would do isn't suspicious. Personally I call a lot. I like them to know I'm not afraid. I like the call history.
2. You know those notes you were advised to take? Pull that out. Know your age. They once asked for my sign. I said Orion and that astrology was like fortune cookies. Never right and not really a cookie.
3. I've never just received an increase. It's not that you can't, I just don't wait that long.
4. I call about every 30 days. They can do a limit review every 30 days. If you start getting up there, they'll ask about your inventory. Just have the answers.
5. That person is just likely not good with ladies in general. It's not their fault you don't know how to come across well to them. Imagine them with a penis if it helps. I think you see from the other responses that women are no hurdle for any of us.
6. If you're more comfortable talking to men, do that. Hopefully you are in a country that's cool with you only liking men. Just realize they know how often you call, durations, etc. If they think you're being weird, It'll cause a red flag.

Pretty much sums it up.

The only things I want to add are:

You're actually able to get an increase every 25 days. The SYSTEM will allow them to increase your limits every 25 days, but not all reps know this. You might have to call them twice or even mention that another rep said it could be done.

As he said, it's all about acting normal. Don't stutter, don't "forget" and have answers to questions like "where do you get your inventory?" Small talk is key. Mention things like the weather or how busy you've been, etc. Try not to think too much about the "business" aspect of it (I know it's counter intuitive, but it works). It's really easy once you've done it a couple times.

I learned this after calling dozens of times. Finally, a rep let me know I could call every 25 days (he noticed on my account I always called every 30 days exactly). Sometimes it pays to be willing to talk to eBay....they can give you insider info. Especially if you're POLITE and CONFIDENT!

Best words of advice right there, be POLITE & CONFIDENT. They're there to help. They can help. Be someone worth helping and they usually will.

My item limit is at 100, and they said I need to sell at least 50% of my item limit, to get that increased.
Probably some weird algoritm that Ebay has to work out increases.

Yeah, who knows....you can get the same or better increases faster with a simple 5 minute phone call though.

Wait a second, when do you guys put in your birthday when opening an account? Or is it that they will ask for your birthdate without even putting in the account so you have to know what to say immediately?

Not only have the birth date ready but calculate your actual age lol

I remember I called one time back in the day and the rep asked how old I was and I was like ummmm.... :D

Theres no option on eBay to input your birthdate that I know of. Usually the rep will ask when your birthday is when attempting to "verify" your ID. Hence, you need to know when your "Birthday" is, to avoid stuttering and making it obvious you're lying.

Ok, so you need to say your birthdate confidently. Does it matter what time of day you call in? Im up at odd hours, and I'm in the same time zone as eBay, so 2 am will work yea?

Dude, I have written so many threads about this, I should have my own forum.

Just read the thread in my sig.....I cover everything in painstaking detail. This isn't open-heart surgery. It's just a freaking phone call.

FWIW I was told by an eBay rep eBay searches your phone number - if your phone number does not match your name - that will raise a red flag.

I call bs on that too - many people prefer having phone numbers unlisted these days for security reasons and many people who only use cellphones are not listed. The days of landline phone numbers are reducing...

That, and everyone with a pre-paid phone, anyone who's on an "add a line" service (where the account holder adds multiple phone lines to one account to save on the bill), anyone "unlisted" as you mentioned.....

At least 30% of people who have cell phones won't have their name on the account.

I hate calling as well, but I find when its busy or during on peak hours, they are anxious to get you off the phone and will just lift and go.

I've never had a problem calling to get a limit increase. Time of day doesn't matter. Gender doesn't matter. Indian or American rep doesn't matter. It's easy as long as you don't act like a tweaker being interrogated by the cops.
