You have to call customer service. You will first get in touch with someone in India...let them know that you want would like to "raise your selling limits", they will put you on hold. Then transfer you to "trust and safety". This will be the person sitting next to them in India. They will say that they are only authorized to give you a 50 item increase.


You then say "Thank you. Please transfer me to the SELLER VETTING department." They will say okay....and after a long hold you will be transferred back over the pacific to someone in the States...that takes their job WAY too seriously...you explain what you are needing and why....they will ask you a series of questions...at which point they will put you on hold to "review your account." If everything is good....they you will get an increase...usually 30-50% of your current limits depending on who you talk to and their mood at that moment. 


Good Luck...you are going to need it. (expect to be on the phone for 45 mins to 1 hr)



I go through this circus every 2nd of the month.
