eBay recently indefinitely suspended my eBay sellers account. I am looking for tips or advice on opening another account. I'm not interested in black hat stuff. But, for instance, I'm wondering if I can simply open an account in my wife's name? If so, is there anything I should do or not do? For instance, does it matter if I give eBay the same bank account number that I used for my suspended account? What about PayPal? Do I need a new PayPal account or can I use the same one with a new eBay seller's account.
I especially want to hear from folks, like me or who know someone like me, who lost their sellers account but successfully opened up another account.
Yes, I tried begging eBay to restore my account because I feel I did nowhere near anything serious enough to deserve an indefinite suspension. But they assert that the decision is irreversible (some thanks for being a member since 1999, huh?). If there was anything in the online auction world anywhere close to eBay, I'd just go with them. I've tried a couple of auction sites and had virutally no sales. On eBay, I was a PowerSeller.
