Default Business Account but still a 10 item limit

Hi all,

I have looked through these forums for a while now and I can't seem to find an answer to this specific question. Why is it that some eBay Business Accounts wil have a limit of 10 items, and others will allow 100. After much trial and error I can't seem to work out how eBay determines which is which. Any help much appreciated!

Get your Paypal account verified and link it to your Ebay account. You will then get a 100 limit. After that you can either phone in or wait for organic growth

Hi GT

Would this be the same for a personal account, or just business?

Thank you

Hmm, I must be doing something wrong then. I have two verified PP acts linked to two personal seller acts and they both still have a 10 selling limit or 350/650 pound limit.

What am I missing?!

Agreed with Fizzy. I have tried this many a time and I get a 10 limit every time. Maybe it makes a difference whether you initially register as a Business or upgrade later, or whether you are verified when you actually create the seller account.

Glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

The first one I set up was unverified when linked, the second was verified when linked...they were given limits of 10 with 350 and 650 respectively so maybe there is a connection there - but I want the elusive 100 items and 3500 limit!!

Back to the drawing board!

I verified my Paypal account today, thinking the limit would change to 100 items, but it did not work, going to set up a new account and try verifying Paypal before setting up a selling acount on eBay.

You have to request the increase by clicking on the "request higher selling limits" link. It is not automatic.

Assuming the pp is verified you'll get the increase in limit.

You guys are missing something.

You are getting a limit of 10 becuause you have not done something correct.


http://www2.ebay.com/aw/uk/201004011436132.html

You should not have to request limit of 100.

I managed to figure it out, i tried creating a fixed listing with more than 10 items, it directed me to a page with an error message saying i cannot create the listing because it exceeds my selling limits, it then had a link saying request to incrase selling limits, when i clicked that it outlined the steps i needed to do in order to get the limits increased (verify bank account) because i had already done these, i clicked continue, it askd me to log in my paypal details and then it said the limits has been lifted!

That's great random - I wish I had the same experience as you. I saw your post so did the same as you but I got a different outcome.

I requested higher limit, was asked to login to PP, then asked to choose which bank account to use to verify with (either the PP linked act or I could input a new one), then clicked ok to get random amount sent. The first time i said ok to getting the amounts sent I got an error message "Could not initiate random amounts" I tried again and got the message to check my account in 2-3 days.

Now I am a bit confused. I tried this a while ago and got the same problem. I spoke to ebay on the online chat and the guy couldn't help me, in fact he ended the converstation because he couldn't help me!

Hi yes I can confirm I have just lifted my selling limits from 10 to 100. I just clicked on the link 'request higher selling limits' clicked continue' and then was asked to log into already verified paypal account and then got message- 'I can now sell 100 items'. Hope this helps.

Hi, Will it not be a problem if I LIFT my limits from 10 to 100 within 1 month of opening my *bay account..by using the above method..?..?
But, I did this for one of my account and its been 2 months now. So for I didn't have any problem. Just wondering whether will it raise a flag if i lift it with in 90 days..?. thanks,
