Default Having A Backup Plan For The Serious eBay Seller

Be prepared...

"eBay does allow you to have more than one registered account as long as it using another email address, so it is essential to have at least one backup account for emergency use."

Sure does. And I can not stress how vital it is to have "spare" accounts if your business is dependant on ebay. Only today, (again) I've received emails of users who have got negative feedback left for them & feel it's unjustified.

In all honesty relying on Ebay for your business is simply putting 'all your eggs in one basket'. It used to be fine but now that Ebay has changed so drastically and the likelihood of your account being 'suspended' or even removed has increased it is very advisable to have a couple of accounts so that you can hopefully minimise the damage while you sort out the situation (as the article states).

When getting involved, consider what would happen if you weren't allowed back on Ebay! The fall back of simply having more than one account will not sustain your income level, while you are actively selling on Ebay you need to be pushing other income means. For example, use Ebay to get started then develop your own site as well etc etc
