Sold Ebay account
on: May 15, 2013, 20:31:53 PM
Converted my account to a Business Account, sold it with 100% positive feedback, zero selling limits (new accounts have total per month selling limits), mine was a 10 year old account.

Sold it for £800, got the cash via paypal.

Just a heads up, i know some of you will want to earn a bit of extra cash.  :muttley:

surely thats against the terms n conditions. so when they pull the cash back you'll have no comeback?!

if you can get away with doing that then this throws the whole system into a new light entirely. I shall put less store in large feedback scores in future.

Sell your account on your account, literally convert it to a business and sell it with stock, e.g. Addict-Games, including 2 games for Wii.

Search Ebay for Ebay Account

This is most interesting, accounts seem to be going for crazy money.

How can I tell if my account is unlimited?

Afaik the selling limitations have only come into place in the last couple of years, perhaps a google search will reveal more.

I asked a mate, but my account being 10 years old i assume it was far before any limits.

Awesome, well thanks for the heads up. I dont have any reason to hold on to my account so I'll have a go at selling.

Will update closer to the sale.

be carefull, if its a business account & they go do dodgy dealings, I bet ebay/paypal will come after you - as your the one who signed & accepted their T&Cs

The person who bought mine is selling stuff from 1000s of miles away, it looks like a legit business, he has changed all the contact details on the account and obviously the ip will be completely different.

I see your point though Egg, and it did worry me, but several friends have sold their accounts and have had no issues.

Hmmm interesting. My account is 7 years old and barely used, looking at what's already for sale it might actually go for something just due to the no limits and no negative :p
