Hi everybody
As most of you know, I started a airsoft building, and there are parts that I need to buy on ebay.
Sadly, after I bought 2 stuff, my account got suspended, I called them, didn´t help :evil: .
So I made another account with a different name and email, but when I try to buy something, it says that I have reached the limit of things that my account allows to buy at a time :evil: . I called them again they said that I need to confirm my credit card or a debit card to my account. I already have a paypal account, why do I have to use a credit card :?
So for those who shops frequently on ebay, somebody help? thanks

You need a new CC to go with the new PP account. They block the account and card..

Their customer service is well known.. Sorry you are dealing with them.

I use paypal, but paypal needs to be linked to a credit card.

Paypal is a Ebay company. In order to have and maintain a open account you need to have both CC and a bank account tied to the PP account. Why did they suspend your account?
Look if you must.

This QEV and 3-way are what I´m trying to buy, the shiping price is only 0.5 $ us.
So can anybody buy them then ship to me? I can pay with paypal, contact me by pm, thanks
No idea why did they do that, they didn´t even try to explain through my phone call, only wasted my time and money :evil:

You should have gotten a email to your registered primary email address siting TOS violation. Had you sold anything just before the suspension? Are you in the USA?

Did you link the same PayPal account to your new eBay username?

That would be the problem. If either your PayPal or eBay membership is suspended, you need to create an entirely new set of accounts, and link a different bank account as a funding source.
