Is there a way in eBay to changes status from business to private seller?

We have a business account on eBay that we used to trade on but have stopped a long back and now only sell household items every now and then. I was thinking of creating a new account but this one has built up feedback (mostly from buying) and I rather use this but business sellers hardly get any promotional offers like private sellers.

Same here, but I have never been bothered.. Should I be? What would be the difference?

£1 FVF offers is one example; I don't think business sellers get them. Plus you can say No to returns (doesn't really matter but it does deter some buyers).

I always get them, that's why I scared to change it.








It is very early in the morning, maybe I'm getting confused and my ebay is personal and my paypal is business? I know my paypal is business and I am not a business at all. Not sure of the differences.

A big difference as far as I can see and especially now. Private sellers get quite a lot of offers for £1 FVF and you can list up to 1000 listings free of charge whereas as business seller you pay about 30p per listing of you don't have a shop subscription.

So if your only selling every now and done and trying to get rid of stuff you don't need, your much better off.
