So I'm assuming you now use SS exclusively for invoicing, and the sending and receiving of payments?

I got limited a week ago and now I have a couple of payments that I am expecting in the next week. My account is closed completely!

Has anyone heard the term "stealth"?

I read an article on how to go stealth by Auction Essistance, but unsure if it is safe to create a new account, buy a new account or try plead to get PayPal to reopen my account?

Any help would be appreciated.

Why did you get limited then shut down? I guess the chances of getting reinstated depend on what you did.

if there is non, call paypal and if they agree they will release your account, they have no reason to limit your account for fun, nor to steal your money, nor to get interest, nor to buy weapons of mass destruction. 184 million users tells me they are quite legit and trusted

I'm preparing a very detailed explanation one more time. I have a little hope they will change something. Will see.
And maybe, if they'll not reply, I'll call them.
Thank you.

I haven't read the whole thread so this may have been said by someone else, but if PP was so critical to your everyday business why wasn't calling them the FIRST thing you did to get an explanation and to see if this issue could be resolved ASAP. Getting on the phone to them would be top of my list... speak to a human being, find out the issue, and then get clear and concise details on what you need to do to resolve the issues. Once you have resolved them get on the phone again and advise the human being that you have done what was requested. It's much easier to fire off an email and wait, and in the meantime research other similar horror stories on the website to back up your belief that Paypal is evil, but I'd take a guess this could have been resolved quicker if you had picked up the phone.

My account had issues where they weren't allowing certain companies put money into my account. I received an email saying that so and so company is trying to send you money and we believe it is fraudulent.  I picked up the phone right away and had a very friendly chat with a rep and problem solved in 5 minutes.  If you have the means to call them, it's the best first step.

The common wisdom in this business has been to never put all of your eggs in one basket, at least when it comes to which agencies you work with and how you distribute your images. I apply the same logic to payments and receiving earnings. I don't want to rely on one company or service for all of my income, so I split it up across a few services: PayPal, Skrill, and bank transfers.

There's also a tax consideration for why I do this (PayPal's 1099-K reporting) but that's a discussion of a different sort and one that you can find plenty of info on with a search of these forums.

But as a general rule of minimizing risk, I don't do anything "exclusively" with one company for any part of my business.

Fully agree with everything.

Has anyone been able to get back on PayPal after they got their appeal denied and got a permanent limitation?

I was looking at this guide: newbielink:https://www.slideshare.net/AuctionEssistance/ebay-incognitostealth [nonactive]

But it seems like a lot of work involved for creating a simple account again.

Wondering if anyone had any success with using PayPal again.

I used to use paypal a lot and let my customers pay through paypal with me for creative work i do. I even had PayPal pro in which i paid $30 a month to have the ability to charge credit cards and such.
One customer of mine who has used my vectoring and design services from time to time has issued 2 charge backs for 2 different works i did for him in a span of couple of weeks. At first he played it off like it was an accident and kept on denying anything and it was an accident and kept giving me the run around.
I kept emails and text messages i received from our conversations on him loving my work and saying he sent me money and so forth and showed this as proof when PayPal started investigating the case. Long story short, it doesn't matter, PayPal will issue a charge back and take the amount out of your account if one of your customer issues a charge back AND charge you a FEE of $20 per incident.
This left such a bad taste in my mouth, i no longer do business with PayPal and refuse to give them any percentage of cut they take...

Chargebacks aren't unique to Paypal.
