Would it be a problem to multiple eBay accounts link to one Paypal accounts.
I am a seller. Will eBay be able to detect such cases?

No problems at all, multiple eBay accounts are fine to link to one PayPal account. You can also have more than one PayPal account as well, up to two accounts are possible, if that hasn't changed since I last checked.

One private PayPal and one business PayPal account are possible, if required.

Wont eBay be able to detect multiple accounts? I know there's no problem with Paypal, but having multiple eBay seller accounts may links all those accounts together and cause suspension of all accounts (eBay accounts). I'm not sure, I just need reassurance. Thanks!

Yes, eBay will be well aware of your multiple eBay accounts all being linked to your PayPal account, but there is no issue in doing that. The only time you would have an issue is if one of your eBay accounts got into suspension trouble, then you can have trouble with all your accounts, but that has nothing to do with having them linked to PayPal.

Hi audionsound,

Having more than one ebay account connected to your Paypal account is no problem at all.

I have two ebay accounts connected to the one Paypal account and have had no issues at all.

Cheers

I have a smiliar question. I've used one ebay and one paypal for many years and used both for personal and business. My business on ebay has never amounted to much, but is growing and within a few months I will be using it a lot more. Is it best to have a personal ebay and paypal for when I make purchases and a different ebay and paypal as a seller? I would start with no feedback on the personal one if I did that, so that concerns me but I'm thinking it could be problematic to deal with personal/business from one account.

Any input/suggestions?

That's really a personal choice in regards to your eBay accounts, one paypal account for both private and business is absolutely fine, however you can have one private and one business paypal account if you wish.

In regards to eBay accounts, the only downside to using one account to buy and sell is that your buyers can of course see what you, yourself buy by viewing your feedback as a buyer.

If that's not a big deal for you, then no issues at all. If you would prefer to keep that private, then a two account option would be applicable.
