Start over. PayPal almost never reverses their decisions.

But determine WHY they consider you a risk first, so you can avoid that in the future. If you don't the next account will just be closed as well.

You've gotta love it....

PayPal States:

We would like to begin the process of ending our
relationship in a manner that is least disruptive to your business.


So, they IMMEDIATELY stop your sales and hold your money hostage for six months. What could be MORE DISRUPTIVE than that?

how can i deduce anything from this email???

ill tell you what has gone on maybe you can chime in on why you think they sent me this?

anyway, i had 3/ accounts reg'd to one paypal.
all accounts on stealth details, ebay as wellas paypal.

the first limit i provided stealth id, supplier invoice etc limit was lifted and was allowed to sell.

fast forward, i recieved alot of sales over the last 1month or so, by selling more by offering users second chance offers, and thus i recieved a high amount of money through paypal, which is when i recieved the - suspicious account behavioue email, and was limited and was asked to provide supplier invoice, and proof of postage i supplied these and was waiting for the limit to belifted but they sent me an email stating that the tracking number s supplied dont show up as delivered so had to wait until it showed up as delivered.

eventually all tracking id's showed up as delivered when bang i get a not as described dispute from a buyer, before the disput i had sent an email that all tracking ids show up as delivered and when the limit would be lifted, after the disput had taken place they had replied back saying that i would need to sort the dispute out first before considering lifting the limit, which i did and complaint was evntually sorted out.

then another buyer from 2 months ago left negative 2 negative feedbacks on my account while in the process of my paypal account being limited.

and today i then contacted ebay live chat asking them if it was possible to get that feedback removed, to no avail i was asked to phone trust and safety, which i agreed to but did not phone them and left live chat, then a couple of hours later BANG!

i recieved the email outlined in the first post and ONE of my ebay accounts was suspended.

any ideas as to why i was sent that email by paypal????

OK....

This is becoming clearer.

You are selling what eBay deems to be high-risk items. If you don't know what eBay considers high-rsik, just go to DHgate and see if what you are selling is listed there. If it IS, then your product is considered high-risk, whether or not it is genuine.

Second, a "lot of money" starts moving through PayPal. This also triggers reviews.

Third, they saw the buyer dispute and 2 negative feedbacks coming in.

Now, you didn't say exactly what you are selling, what the negative feedbacks said, or why the buyer claims the item you sold him is not as described. And I'm not asking you.

But let me take a guess...

Was the authenticity of your items questioned?

I see plenty of red flags here. PayPal probably didn't do this because of just ONE thing, it looks like it was a COMBINATION of things they didn't like.

1) Selling large quantities of VERO items.
2) A sudden surge in sales (I'm guessing from the info you gave)
3) A buyer dispute and 2 negative feedbacks.
4) Large amounts of money involved.

In your last post you asked if others selling large quantities of VERO items were also banned by PayPal. I see where you are going with this, but that is a road to nowhere. eBay and PayPal are NOT fair and the rules are NOT applied consistently. That is just the way it works. But, eventually, ANY account that shows this type of activity will draw their scrutiny.

It is always best to spread sales over several accounts and slowly increase them on each account. ESPECIALLY if your items are favored by counterfeiters. Please understand I am NOT accusing you of anything - eBay and PayPal have no way of knowing for sure whether or not your items are legitimate, but ALL such sales are considered high-risk. That is just the way it is.

thanks for the response, i think i will give up on selling counterfiets and starting to move on to more legitamate items under my original ebay account from back in the day which i got reinstated a couple of months ago.


they probably had thier suspicions that i was indeed selling counterfiet items.

if i start selling unbranded items around 20-30 each do you think they will eventually send me that email again? i understand each individuals circumstances are differnt and unique.
it looks like that there is no way to avoid this, even by selling legitamate items? if you alot of money is going through paypal account, does it give them the power to shut down my paypal solely based on "a large amount of money going through the account"?



im thinking that that email was sent to me due to selling counterfiets and no other reason but that, and the trigger was the fact that i was selling alot more than usual?

Generally speaking, eBay/PayPal is more tolerant of unbranded items, since that eliminates the risk they are counterfeit. Stiill, if they see tons of sales on a new account, it COULD trigger a review.

However, if you start slowly and build a little each week, treat each customer as if they were your MOTHER, and ship quickly, you should be OK.

While nobody can say for sure why eBay/PayPal takes certain actions, we can guess. My guess is the complaints and selling VERO were the two main factors that did you in.

do you think it would be safer to convert my recently reinstated ebay account to a shop? the 350 a month package?

and my paypal account to a paypal business account?

im thinking this would then allow me to listin and sell in volume?

I never used this option, so I don't know. Maybe someone else who has tried this will chime in.
