Default Selling limit on 2009 Ebay buyer account

Hi guys,
It been a while since I sold on Ebay and as always lots have changed.
Ive knocked up a stealth account and it only has a monthly selling limit of 25 items. Last time I did this, I linked to Paypal and was given a monthly selling limit of 100.

Now, I am about to buy a 2009 Ebay buyer account (i dont think it has any history of buying or browsing history on it - probably just created in 2009 and then sat dormant).

Question is, has anybody any experience of turning an aged dormant ebay account into a selling account? Does it as well get slapped with a 25 monthly limit or will there be a possibility of it getting a 100 limit because of its age?? Or are all selling accounts now restricted to 25 items a month?

Thanks in advance.

It will get slapped with limits.

The fact that it has been dormant is the reason.

Be very careful about the purchase & make sure you can 'prove' title to the account.

ebay has been known to suspend these older accounts at the 1st transaction to ensure the account is not hijacked.

Use with due care

If it were turned into a seller account back in 2009, it would have no limits (not even just the 100). If you do it today you will get 25. Selling limits are given when you turn the account into a seller account, not when the account was first registered.

Elijah is right - the buying status of 2009 is not the seller status.
